Why Drink Smoothies?
You may not have tried a smoothie before. We can tell you that they are a delicious way to enjoy healthy ingredients, especially fruit, and also give your day a real boost. Why are smoothies so healthy and good for you? Well, there are a number of reasons for this.
A Great Way To Consume Fruits & Vegetables
Perhaps one of the most obvious benefits of drinking smoothies is that they contain plenty of fruits and vegetables. It can sometimes feel challenging to ensure that we are consuming enough fruits and greens to maintain our health. However, drinking smoothies is a great way to ensure you get enough every day.
Making a delicious smoothie makes consuming fruit fun, especially for kids! Include the right ingredients in a daily smoothie and you’re sure to start feeling healthier. You might even lose that stubborn weight that insists on hanging around long past its welcome!
Lose Weight With Smoothies
Smoothies can help you lose weight since you use them as meal replacements too. The healthy ingredients will help you shift unwanted bulk, but you can also use smoothies to control your overall calorie intake. Smoothies are quick and easy to make, so they make the perfect substitute for the kind of fast food meals we tend to consume when we’re in a hurry.
Smoothies can also help with cravings for sugary food if you include plenty of healthy fats in your recipe. Healthy fats are found in foods such as nuts and seeds, and consuming these in a smoothie will fill you up nicely. So nicely, in fact, that you’ll find that afternoon craving for chocolate or other sugary snacks disappears!
Pack In The Berries And Bananas
Drinking smoothies that have berries in them can also have a very specific health benefit too. If you include berries in your smoothie recipe you can significantly increase your Vitamin C intake. Strawberries are particularly high in Vitamin C, and eating just one cup of strawberries every day can see you absorb 150% of your recommended daily intake of this crucial vitamin.
Berries are also very high in antioxidants. Antioxidants can help lower your inflammation levels, particularly if you are overweight. Smoothies like the one featured here can make it much easier and tastier to absorb Vitamin C and antioxidants.
Increase Your Fiber Intake
Additionally, smoothies are a great way to ensure that you are getting enough fiber in your diet. Fiber helps our digestive systems work more efficiently, helping our overall health. It also protects against a range of health issues. By consuming more fiber in our diets, we reduce our chances of falling prey to conditions like heart disease, colon cancer, and diabetes.
You can boost the fiber content of a smoothie by adding other ingredients too. Bananas are good choice, as they help to boost your potassium intake, which is a good way to lower blood pressure. Don’t be scared to put some green, leafy vegetables like spinach or kale in your smoothies too. Nuts can also add more fiber if you’re looking for a really healthy way to refuel and add some of those healthy fats to your smoothie.
As you can see, our lovely lemonade is the perfect ingredient for this strawberry smoothie! Its combination of traditional ingredients makes it ideal to add that extra touch of tangy delight to a tasty strawberry smoothie. So if this has helped you decide to give smoothies a try, we hope that it has also persuaded you to say ‘Gimme Zimmie!’ the next time you make one.
Our Zimmerman’s Dairy lemonade is the perfect ingredient to give your smoothies that extra certain something, whether you’re aged 6 or 86! Of course, you can also enjoy our superb lemonade on its own as a refreshingly tangy drink that is perfect for those long, hot summer days. One thing we can guarantee — however you enjoy Zimmerman’s Dairy lemonade, you’ll love it!
