Smoothies are a healthy and easy meal replacement when you’re in a rush – which is how most of us live day to day. Fruity and delicious, smoothies can keep you satiated for hours by adding a variety of balanced and wholesome ingredients. Plus, they’re full of antioxidants!
This frozen Sunrise Smoothie is my go-to when I need a quick breakfast or snack. It even takes the edge off when I’m craving a frozen beverage or dessert on vacation (Checkout 5 Tips to Stick to Your Goals on Vacation).
Raspberries and mango are the primary ingredients in this drink. Raspberries are flavonoid-rich which helps with inflammation and can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, while antioxidants found in raspberries can help ward off cancer. Mangos are rich in fiber, and Vitamin A and C to promote skin and hair health.
Tofu is another ingredient I used to make this smoothie – don’t worry, it’s optional! It may sound odd, but tofu is tasteless and gives the smoothie its creamy consistency. Made from soybeans, tofu contains a high amount of protein. Combining the protein of the tofu and the carbohydrates of the fruit in this recipe will help slow down the digestion of it, keeping you full for hours!
