The weather warms up and schedules get hectic, and less time in the kitchen means more time outside enjoying the weather we’ve waited so long for! To celebrate spring, we’re sharing ten of our favorite smoothie recipes using fresh flavors for hot days.
Before we jump to recipes, we should explain why we’re so crazy about protein shakes and smoothies. At Nutritional Weight & Wellness, we always suggest eating in balance, a mix of protein, quality fat and a good carb. Smoothies and shakes are a perfect fast and delicious vehicle for all of those important ingredients. Balanced eating keeps your blood sugar stable, which directly impacts you mood, brain, waistline, and the list goes on.
More about Our Protein Powder
Our Wellness Whey protein is derived from dairy and easy for most people to digest with no harmful or unhealthy ingredients. It mixes nicely and tastes great. Whey protein also contains a complete amino acid profile, which is important for maintaining lean body mass, burning fat and supporting good moods. Our chocolate and vanilla Wellness Whey Protein Powders are sweetened with stevia and a small amount of crystalline fructose, from fruit, which enhances the flavor; the natural flavor contains no sweetener. The chocolate and vanilla powders also contain L-carnitine, L-glutamine and chromium, which can help increase energy and metabolism.
