    The Best Smoothie Add-Ins Out There

    Fresh Smoothie Add-Ins

    You love your daily smoothie, right? But what if there was a way to make it even better—tastier, healthier, and more functional. Below are some of the best smoothie add-ins out there.

    Protein

    Whey, soy, and hemp protein powders—and nut butter or nuts are just a few of the add-ins that can turn your fruit and veggie smoothie into a post-workout recovery aid or a meal replacement.

    Herbs And Spices

    Fresh herbs, dried herbs, and dried spices are another way to boost the healing value and flavor profile of any smoothie. Cinnamon, peppermint, ginger, and turmeric are at the top of this list.

    Yogurt

    Don’t worry if you are lactose intolerant because there are an endless option of dairy and dairy-free yogurts you can blend into your smoothie. This will make it a bit creamier, and boost the calcium content.

    Healthy Fats

    Flaxseed oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado are just a few of Omega-rich healthy fats you can add to your smoothie. With just 1 tablespoon of liquid oils, you won’t even know it’s there.

    The sky is the limit when it comes to blending the perfect smoothie. Just keep experimenting until you have at least a few smoothies and go-to smoothie add-ins to choose from.
