This minty and tangy tangerine smoothie is filled with tons of Vitamin A, Alpha-Carotene, Beta-Carotene, Biotin and Vitamin E. Vitamin A and the Carotenes are essential for blood formation, and it also helps to keep our skin and eyes healthy. Avocado also contains a lot of unsaturated fats, which can lower our blood cholesterol levels.

A Kale Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie and Coffee-Raisin Protein Bites

A Kale Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie and Coffee-Raisin Protein Bites

A few weeks ago, I finally found a way control my passion for peanut butter without having to eliminate it from my diet altogether. Rather than consuming the condiment by itself, I've been incorporating it into smoothies and energy balls. I add a bit of protein powder to the mix so that I immediately feel full and stay that way. This definitely keeps cravings at bay and it has trained me to eat when I'm actually hungry, instead of bingeing when I encounter the slightest bit of stress.

This Peach Perfect Smoothie Is The Answer To Your Morning

This Peach Perfect Smoothie Is The Answer To Your Morning

Peaches always remind me of my childhood. My father loves them and always brought fresh peaches and nectarines after work. Then, we would all sit in our living room watching tv and eating those amazing peaches! Every time I see this fruit, I feel like I'm home.When I walked into the small fruit store next to my university (searching for mangoes and papayas) it drove me to buy some huge, juicy and sweet peaches. I just had to buy them. By the way - according to Traditional Chinese Medicine - peaches are helpful for relieving pain and (for our girls out there) menstrual pain. I tried to choose fruits that would boost the flavor of the peach: bananas, tangerines and dragon fruit. All of these ingredients have a mild taste and they worked perfectly for this peach perfect smoothie. This recipe pretty sweet, because why not? It is also really satisfying and fresh, though peaches are considered a "warm" fruit. It's perfect for cool summer nights and transitional weather. The cocoa nibs are my all time favorite, they give a crunch and slightly bitter taste to the peach perfect smoothie, which I love so much.
