Kick The Cold Super Green Smoothie

You know I love my green smoothies! 

I drink one pretty much everyday, and the days I don’t drink one I feel really ‘off!’

They just taste so damn good and it’s such an easy way to incorporate a lot of dense greens and load up on vitamins and minerals. 

I created this smoothie specifically for beating your cold and flu. With the fall season upon us and the dreary sun-less weather, there have been many sniffles and coughs going around. 

Kick your cold to the curb and boost your immune system with this vitamin C rich smoothie. Did you know the kiwi’s contain more vitamin C than oranges? It’s true! They are great for your immune system, plus, vitamin C helps to build collagen which is a protein necessary for beautiful skin, hair and nails. 

Then there’s kale. Kale is king when it comes to veggies and I made sure to include 2 cups of this super green. It’s rich in calcium, magnesium, vitamin C and loaded with chlorophyll which helps to alkalize your body. 

So load up on this super smoothie and get to feeling better and brand new again, fast! And if you don’t have a cold, make it anyways! It will help prevent you from catching one πŸ™‚

Enjoy!

Avocado & Spinach Smoothie

Tell me you’ve blended avocados into your smoothies before?

They lend such a creamy texture, not to mention an added boost of vitamin E and monounsaturated healthy fats. You really can’t go wrong with this amazing fruit!

I would say I eat an avocado almost everyday. It really is one of my favourite foods. I often hear women tell me how they avoid eating avocados due to them being rich in fat. It kills me when I hear this! There is such a misconception around fat. Often I see women order a grande starbucks latte (loaded with milk and sugar but the way!), but avoid eating nutrient rich, metabolism boosting, heart healthy avocados!

Ladies… eat avocados! Enjoy them, add them to salads, mash them and make a healthy guacamole, and start adding them to your smoothies!

This amazing smoothie is full of protein, plant based omega 3’s and full of nutrients like calcium and magnesium from a healthy serving of spinach.

Hope you enjoy!
