Feel your best with this healthy, nutrient-rich, detox green smoothie! Loaded with powerful superfoods like spinach, kale, superfoods and plant proteins.
I’m not exaggerating at all when I say that I drink this smoothie every morning! When it comes to the rest of my weekly menu, it’s all over the place, but I love starting every day, with this delicious green smoothie. It’s loaded with vitamins, nutrients, superfoods and protein, making it the perfect detox smoothie.
Let's talk about our main ingredients.
Benefits of kale
Kale is a nutritious food rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin K, and beta-carotene. It also contains nutrients that can support eye health, weight management, heart health, and more.
Loaded with important micronutrients and antioxidants, kale is one of the most nutritious leafy greens available. In fact, kale contains a variety of beneficial compounds, some of which have powerful medicinal properties.
Plus, it’s versatile and boasts a nutty, earthy flavor that works well in a wide range of recipes.
Benefits of Spinach
Spinach is a nutritious leafy, green vegetable that may benefit skin, hair, and bone health. It is rich in multiple vitamins and minerals.
The possible health benefits of consuming spinach include improving blood glucose control in people with diabetes, lowering the risk of cancer, and improving bone health. Additionally, this vegetable provides minerals and vitamins that can confer a range of benefits.
Benefits of Raspberries
Raspberries are a popular berry with a rich color and sweet juicy taste. They are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
They provide potassium, essential to heart function, and proven to lower blood pressure. The omega-3 fatty acids in raspberries can help prevent stroke and heart disease. They also contain a mineral called manganese, which is necessary for healthy bones and skin and helps regulate blood sugar.
Nuts: Walnuts and Pumpkin seeds
Nuts are a good source of fibre, proteins and healthy fats. In this recipe, I'm using walnuts and pumpkin seeds to add extra superpower.
To say that walnuts are a nutritious food is a bit of an understatement. Walnuts provide healthy fats (specially omega 3), antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals — and that’s just the beginning of how they may support your health. Eating walnuts not only nourishes you but also the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut. This promotes the health of your gut and may help reduce disease risk.
On the other hand, pumpkin seeds have been shown to improve heart health, blood sugar levels, fertility, and sleep quality. They may even protect against certain types of cancer. In addition, their rich nutrient content may provide other health benefits, such as improved energy, mood, and immune function.
My advice to you is "choose your nuts carefully".
The most important ingredient: Superfoods Blend
Harness from earth's most powerful superfoods without wasting time shopping and queuing up. GaiaMeal allows you to get all your superfoods and proteins in seconds.
