A metabolism boosting berry smoothie is a great way to start your day! This smoothie is delicious and such a gorgeous shade of deep pink.
There’s nothing like a smoothie for a quick and healthy breakfast or after workout snack. You can fit a lot of nutrients into one glass if you choose your ingredients well.
This metabolism boosting berry smoothie is full of strawberries, blueberries, and banana. If it’s summer and you can use fresh summer berries, all the better! If it’s winter, go ahead and use frozen berries. If you do use frozen berries and you find this smoothie too tart, you can add a bit of honey or more frozen banana if you wish.
You can use non-dairy milk or juice if you wish, but the sugar content of this smoothie is kept down by using water rather than juice to blend it.
What gives this metabolism boosting berry smoothie its power?
- berries boost metabolism by providing lots of fiber that causes the body to burn more calories while it tries to digest it
- bananas contain resistant starch that helps you feel full and gives your metabolism a boost, too
