The VITAMIN boost – most smoothies are packed with fruits and/or veg, look for ones packed with a bit of both, be careful of the sugar (fructose) content however. Vitamin, antioxidant packed blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are great choices for a healthy hit.
The PROTEIN content – smoothies that contain yogurt and/or protein powder are also great post-workout nourishment, the combination of fast acting carbohydrates and protein are great for repair and recovery.
FIBRE – often missed off the list of reasons to get a smoothie, the fibre content of some smoothies can be great especially when the skin of the fruit and veg is also in the bottle.
- TASTE – let’s be honest one the best reasons for getting a smoothie is its combination of sweet and sour flavours and great textures.
