Feeling Low? A Spring Green Smoothie Will Brighten Your Mood!
Good-for-you fats and fibre are just some of the amazing qualities contained in this powerfully refreshing Blendtec smoothie! Not only can the Spring Green Smoothie cheer you up when you're feeling a bit down in the dumps, but it can act as a metabolism booster and is fantastic for weight loss. High-protien granola helps to keep you full all day long so you won't end up craving a slice of cake or scoop of ice cream. It lowers your cholesterol levels which can play a pivotal role in preventing heart disease, heart attack and other cardiovascular issues. Hemp seeds can help reduce inflammation and brighten your mood while providing you a healthy dose of Omega-3s and Omega-6s. Hemp seeds are a pure source of protein, vitamins and disease-preventing enzymes. They even give you an added boost of energy when you feel sluggish. To make your own Spring Green Smoothie, simply add these ingredients into your Blendtec: 6 fl oz unsweetened almond milk 1 medium apple, cored and quartered 1 orange, peeled and halved 1 tbsp hemp seeds 1 cup fresh spinach 1⁄4 cup high-protein granola 2 cups ice cube Now select 'Smoothie' or blend at Low for 10 seconds, Med for 10 seconds and High for 40 seconds.
