Nothing compares to the glory of a milkshake. But if you get a “skinny” strawberry milkshake from Smoothie King, it’ll set you back 520 calories and a whopping 102 grams of sugar.
That’s more sugar than 3 sodas!
If you’re going to drink your nutrition, let’s make it something that’s actually good for you. So instead of making an epic smoothie mistake, now you can make our Wild Strawberry Milkshake.
This rich and creamy “milkshake” is loaded with vitamins, healthy fats, and beneficial fiber to help you power through your morning. But unlike store-bought monstrosities, this friendly smoothie is low-carb and low-sugar.
The beets in this smoothie give it that beautiful pink color, and the strawberries and coconut milk bring those creamy milkshake-like flavors.
Fun fact about beets: Beets have been used medicinally since the days of the Ancient Romans, who recognized the colorful root as a potent aphrodisiac. Beets are high in boron which aids in the production of human sex hormones. There are naturally occurring nitrates and nitric oxide in beets which can also increase blood flow, which is code for “awesome” whether you’re a guy or a gal.
Here are a few more benefits of this tasty smoothie:
- Strawberries are a nutrient-rich fruit packed with antioxidants including vitamin C. Strawberries are high in fiber, lower blood levels of C-reactive protein (a signal of inflammation in the body), and contain potassium, vitamin K and magnesium. Plus, the red coloring of strawberries contains anthocyanin which can boost short term memory and helps you burn stored body fat.
- Avocado oil is a rich source of monounsaturated oleic acid (Omega 9 EFA), which lowers risk of certain types of cancer, helps to prevent autoimmune flare-ups, and speeds healing in the body. Avocado oil is also known for strengthening skin and hair, improving digestion, reducing inflammation, and helping to detoxify the body.
- Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and beta-cyanine.
- Spinach is a powerhouse. It’s high in niacin, zinc, protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.
This smoothie powerhouse is packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, including , phytonutrients such as carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin), vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, potassium, fiber and more.
Adding nutrient-dense smoothies into your lifestyle will help clear out free radicals, boost the immune system, help you heal from colds and flu, and keep you burning fat.
More importantly, it tastes ridiculously good.
Here’s a tip for summertime. If you have leftover smoothie, pour it into popsicle molds and freeze for a delicious and kid-friendly dessert… Strawberry popsicles!
