by: Jeric Danao

So you’ve finally decided to lead a healthier lifestyle and hit that gym in Manila, haven’t you?

Just when you’re getting a bit daunted by all the exercises you need to do, however, you realize that there’s another thing you need to accomplish — that is, indulging in a more nourishing diet. But stuffing yourself with healthy food doesn’t have to be time-consuming and difficult. One smart way of doing this is through smoothies. Not only are they fuss-free to make, they’re also extremely delicious and healthy!

Here are some easy smoothie recipes that you can incorporate into your diet.

1. Banana Ginger Smoothie

This concoction helps soothe stomach problems (such as indigestion and heartburn). It’s also perfect for nausea.

  • 1 banana (sliced)
  • 6 oz of vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • ½ tsp of freshly grated ginger
Combine all ingredients in a blender until they’re smoothly blended.

2. World’s Best Smoothie

This tasty drink is an excellent choice for breakfast—and it will also keep you fully satiated until lunch!

  • 1 cup of plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • 6 frozen strawberries
3. Pineapple Passion

Who needs ice cream when you can enjoy this frozen delight? Plus, it’s completely guilt-free and healthy!

  • 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 cup of pineapple chunks
For this smoothie, make sure to blend the yogurt and ice cubes first before tossing in the pineapple chunks.

4. Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie

This drink is suffused with fiber, which will not only satisfy you but also aid in warding off diseases. Additionally, kiwis are also rich in vitamin C, which your body sorely needs.

  • 1 cup of cold apple juice
  • 1 banana (sliced)
  • 1 kiwi fruit (sliced)
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of honey
5. Watermelon Wonder

It’s a sweltering afternoon, and you want something to refresh you and fill you with nourishing ingredients — if that’s the case, then this drink will indeed do wonders!

  • 2 cups of chopped watermelon
  • ¼ cup of fat-free milk
  • 2 cups of ice
Just remember to remove the watermelon seeds before you blend everything.

6. Energy Boosting Smoothie

This drink is perfect for giving you a dose of energy when you’re still feeling groggy in the morning.

  • 2 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp of peanut butter
  • 8 oz of Greek yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup of ice
  • A pinch of cinnamon
You can also sprinkle another dash of cinnamon on top of the smoothie for a richer flavor.

Key Takeaway

Leading a healthier lifestyle doesn’t just end with enrolling in some gyms. You also need to begin reaching out for healthier food choices.

A lot of people, however, find this step a bit intimidating. But this doesn’t have the case. Eating more nourishing foods shouldn’t be equated with being a hassle — and one way of making this a lot easier for you is through smoothies.

Smoothies aren’t just easy to make, they’re also satisfying, healthy, and tasty!
