TOP 5: Smoothie Recipes
What’s the difference between juices and smoothies: The only major difference between juice and smoothies, is that one of the two contains fiber (good choice) while the other doesn’t (less great choice)… Which is which? You might have already guessed that smoothies are the winning choice with all their fiber!
Why is fiber so important? Firstly, because it helps you maintain your digestive tract, but also because it helps you feel fuller for longer. So, instead of going through the hassle of making fresh juice with a juicer just to throw away all the pulp which contains all that great fiber — or worse, buying sugary juice flavoured water from the store, make yourself a great smoothie, with all that goodness blended right into a delicious beverage. Here are 5 of our favourite healthy smoothie recipes!
#5 – Cantaloupe Smoothie
This fresh, fruity smoothie is full of fruit and has extra protein in the form of silken tofu. Cantaloupe is not only refreshing and delicious, it’s also full of good fiber.
#4 – Banana Mocha Smoothie
This delicious smoothie is a great spin on a classic combination (banana and chocolate). The coffee deepens the flavour, and you’ll be surprised at some of the ingredients hidden in this super healthy smoothie!
#3 – Strawberry-Banana Smoothie with Tofu
Strawberries and bananas are perfect for smoothie recipes since they pair so well with other ingredients. They’re distinct, but delicious and it just so happens, work perfectly together!
