The Almond Ginger Monkey Smoothie That'll Make You a Breakfast Devotee

January 25, 2019

When it comes to making smoothies, you have tons of options but that doesn't mean you should just throw a mish-mash of ingredients together. Not when you can make a recipe that gives every ingredient a specific purpose—and you a big health benefit. Check out why we chose these particular ingredients, then get sipping.

Banana: Bananas contain potassium, fiber, and vitamin B6, which support kidney, bone, and cardiovascular health.

Ginger: Ginger is a root that has anti-inflammatory properties, plus it's an excellent digestive tract soother. 

Almond butter: Almonds add protein and deliver a variety of minerals, including magnesium and manganese. They can help protect against cardiovascular disease, ward off hunger, and may even help you lose weight. 

Hemp seeds: Hemp seeds are one of the best sources of plant-based protein to add to a smoothie because not only are they very easy to digest (unlike some other protein powders), they also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Try to use the whole seed instead of hemp protein powder, as whole seeds retain more fiber, protein, and flavor than the powder.

 

Water: Use water as a base instead of a high-calorie juice, coconut water, or highly processed nut milk. It'll save you calories, hydrate your cells, and support your digestive system.
