Having a hard time finding your favorite pumpkin beverage at the coffee shops? Try something cooler, made right at home in your very own blender. Sweet, spicy and satisfying, this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is made with the healthiest of ingredients: organic pumpkin, creamy almond milk, rich almond butter and pure vanilla. For an extra-thick, shake-like consistency, freeze pumpkin purée before you mix it in!
Before you spoon a hefty heap of regular peanut butter into your blender, take a look at how many fat grams you’re packing into that “healthy” smoothie. Two tablespoons will set you back nearly 16 grams—not to mention 200 calories. To keep that peanutty taste without bulking up your beverage, try PBSLIM™, a powdered peanut butter made from real, roasted, non-GMO peanuts that have been pressed to remove 85% of fat calories. In this spicy drink, you’ll mix it with almond milk, protein-packed chia seeds, fiber-rich buckwheat groats and fiery chipotle powder for a filling and eye-opening breakfast.
As a mom, I’m always concerned about the health of my boys — but not just their physical fitness. With kids back in school, the focus is now on their mental toughness. You want to be sure they’re getting the nutrients their growing brains need to absorb every ounce of information (hey, a Mom can dream, right?).
Step aside, chocolate and vanilla. This banana-mango combo makes a sweet, dreamy shake that delights with tropical taste and fruity nutrition. Fiber superstars, bananas and mangos fill you up while packing in plenty of potassium and vitamin B6. Pre-freeze chunks and you’ll get a thick, frosty texture without having to add ice.
Whether you’re trying to get something healthy into your kids’ bellies before they dash out the door to catch the school bus, or you’re attempting to feed your baby/pack his bag for daycare/take a conference call/flat-iron your hair all at the same time, one thing is certain: if you’re a mom, you need a few super-quick, healthy breakfast ideas in your back pocket.
There’s a popular commercial with the slogan “Every Body Needs Milk.” We have a different version when it comes to your health, particularly for women: Every Body Needs Calcium. However, your choices for that mineral range from dairy (yup, as in milk and a cookie!) to certain greens to supplements to calcium-enriched soy milk.
