I usually cringe when I see a new smoothie shop go up. Smoothies can either be super nutritious or a real diet disaster! Most typical smoothie shops load up their drinks with sugar in the form of fruits and syrups. On the other hand they leave out healthy fats and often offer poor protein options.
A REAL nutrient dense smoothie contains a balance of healthy fats, protein, and complex carbs. I even use a variety of healthy smoothies in My 14 day REAL Food REAL Fitness RESET program with the perfect balance of protein,fats, and carbs to keep you energized and full throughout the morning!
This time of year I like to throw pumpkin into my smoothies to shake things up a bit and add in a superfood punch!
