Creamy and frothy satisfies
Both lemon and lime juice are amazing sources of vitamin C, which can help boost immune system function to protect you from colds, viruses, and other illnesses. Fresh lemon juice is also believed to have an alkalizing effect and enhance the body’s natural detoxification pathways.
The acidic tartness of lemon and lime juice may also aide digestion and improve heartburn. It also helps mask the flavor of raw spinach in this smoothie.
Adding leafy greens to smoothies is a great way to get extra servings of vegetables into your day. You get all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber that greens have to offer in a refreshing, fruit flavored smoothie.
Spinach is low in calories but rich vitamins and minerals. It’s a good source of vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, potassium, magnesium, iron, and calcium. It is a great addition to any beverage because the taste is easily masked by other flavors.
Additionally, combining a source of iron with a source of vitamin C enhances iron absorption in the body. In this case, spinach and citrus juice are a perfect match!
Need a little extra protein in your smoothie? No problem!
Simply add a scoop or two of your favorite powdered plant, collagen or whey protein supplement. Adding protein will make it more filling as a snack or even a meal replacement on a busy day. Try unflavored or vanilla to complement the fruit flavors.
