Food Finds: Great Smoothie Add-Ins

It’s Friday Food Finds!  Today I’m happy to share awesome smoothie-making food finds with you.  Just a few fun things you can add to your smoothies to increase the nutritional value, the flavor and overall deliciousness!

Here we go:

PB2Peanut butter powder is great to use when you want the flavor of peanuts but not texture or volume of peanut butter itself.  You can also sprinkle some on top for garnish!

 

macqui

The purple Chilean maqui berry is a great shot of superfood power!  It’s antioxidant-rich and contains vitamin C, calcium, iron and potassium, and other anti-inflammatory compounds. It’s tart fruity flavor will sweeten up your smoothie.

ginger

Ginger is a tasty addition to your smoothie and great for a “warming” effect on chilly days.  Try adding one teaspoon of freshly grated ginger at first, then add more to taste! Blends well with pineapple!

hemp

Hemp seeds add a little protein to your smoothie.  Sometimes I don’t want the bulk of protein powder in my drink and hemp seeds hit the spot!

 

What’s YOUR favorite smoothie-add in?
