Coconut Strawberry Smoothie. Don’t have time for breakfast? No matter how hectic your mornings get, there is one habit you should not fluff off and that is, eating breakfast. Research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to lose more weight and keeping it off. This is especially true when your breakfast consists of a combination of food sources which include quality protein, complex carbohydrates, and good fats.
So what should you reach for to keep yourself going all morning long until lunch? I highly recommend your breakfast includes a power smoothie for a balanced and energizing start to your day.
I’m a huge smoothie person so anytime I can dream up a new recipe to last me through the day, I’m all for it. Sometimes, I’m in the mood for a green smoothie load with my veggies. However, when I’m craving something on the sweeter side, I opt for this healthy variation. I love the combination of the strawberries, coconut and cinnamon spice. The strawberries in this recipe give a nice natural sugar taste without that nasty white stuff (that’s white sugar)!
Strawberries nourish your body with an array of essential nutrients such as antioxidants known as polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals that help keep you healthy and vibrant. They include high amounts of vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. It doesn’t matter whether they are fresh or frozen, they are a healthy food source.
Strawberries contain a compound called biotin which is good for healthy skin, hair, and nails. But its health-promoting benefits don’t stop here. This amazing fruit also helps lower blood pressure, heart health protection and guard against cancer due to its high antioxidants.
You can find quality protein powders such as whey or pea which you can add as your base. Both products are made in vanilla or chocolate flavors. Regardless of which protein powder you chose, this Coconut Strawberry Smoothie recipe is delicious!
