Healthy Fall Ingredients
Fall is the perfect time of year to sneak an extra serving of vegetables into your diet. The trick: steam and freeze! Adding Fall veggies like cauliflower to smoothies adds to the creamy consistency while providing a good source of fiber and antioxidants without all the carbs. Cauliflower happens to be one of Lee From America’s go-to smoothie ingredients. Give her Classic Cauliflower Blueberry Smoothie a try and you’ll be stocking up on our flowery friend.
Sweet potatoes, much like cauliflower, add to the thick and creamy texture of smoothies while serving up a side of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. Add two scoops of our Organic Plant Based Protein Powder to it as well and you’ve got an easy meal replacement that even our busiest friends will enjoy.
It’s no surprise that kale is on our list of top Fall smoothie ingredients. Our motto is, the greener the better. As an excellent source of vitamin C, antioxidants, and folate there’s not much kale can’t do! To get the optimal amount of nutrients from your leafy green, we suggest steaming it before blending–a little plant power 101.
These beauties bring more than just amazing color to the table. Beets contain a number of essential nutrients but skip out on the calories and sugars.
