An icy-cold, fresh fruit smoothie is the perfect way to cool down after a workout or a summer afternoon spent soaking up the sun. With so many fruits and berries in season now, there’s no shortage of options for sweet variations to sip. Here are a few of my personal favorites—always enhanced with a scoop of vanilla protein powder for a little extra fuel!
You know they’re good for you, but how can you add more super seeds such as chia, hemp and flax into everyday meals? Here’s a simple solution (and you don’t even have to turn on the stove!). Blend up this Green Protein Machine Smoothie with fresh kale, cucumber, parsley and other healthy greens, then sprinkle in a scoop or two of each type of seed. A single serving supplies nearly 15 grams of protein — plus vitamins, minerals, fiber and omega-3s!
Why struggle to get your greens? This vegan veggie smoothie is a simple, refreshing way to squeeze in a serving—before you’ve even had lunch! Dairy free and powered up with flax and rice protein, it’s a healthy way to start your day, or sip as a snack when you’re in the mood for something sweet.
Don’t let dessert-free days and tedious treadmill workouts get you down. Being healthy doesn’t have to be boring! In this exclusive Vitacost Tip of the Day video, fitness model and motivational speaker Jennifer Nicole Lee shares the secret to making healthy habits fun.
