I love smoothies because they are easy, keep my portion control in check and I’m less likely to snack when I’ve had one. If you’ve read my recipes before, you know I love throwing sweet potato into my smoothies. They are high in fiber and antioxidants, which protect your body from free radical damage and promote a healthy gut and brain. They’re also incredibly rich in beta carotene, which is converted to vitamin A to support good vision and your immune system. They are loaded with dietary fiber, and vitamins C and B5 and also very low on calories.
This smoothie also has dates for sweetness. Dates contain several types of antioxidants that may help prevent the development of certain chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. The fiber in dates may be beneficial for blood sugar control. Also packed with spinach, this smoothie has vitamins and minerals like vitamin E and magnesium that support your immune system.
This is the perfect smoothie when you want some nutrition and are craving something to satisfy your sweet tooth! Enjoy!
