At the end of the day, smoothies are a lifestyle choice. Smoothies have become more and more popular in recent years, as a healthy alternative to sugar drinks, sweets, cakes, cookies, and other fast food. And more importantly, smoothies are now an alternative for a quick and healthy breakfast.
One thing smoothies deliver is health boosting ingredients. Being that in most cases, smoothies are made of fruits and vegetables, they are packed with minerals and vitamins.
It is easier to get your daily dose of kale, spinach, berries, and some other superfoods in a smoothie, than as whole foods. Not to mention, a lot of people, kids especially, do not like consuming whole spinach or kale. With that in mind, we have a couple of recipes that will boost your immune system while making you feel good about yourself.
