Smoothie for Strong & Healthy Nails
Today we are making a refreshing, fruity, green which is going to be so perfect for these hot summer days.
Adding greens to our smoothies will help boost the vitamin and mineral content of our smoothie and we chose spinach, which is rich in vitamins A, C, K as well as B1, B2 & B6. Did you know that some minerals and vitamins are fat soluble which is why it’s always a great idea to add a healthy source of fat into your smoothie? We chose walnuts which are great for omega 3 fatty acids as well as biotin (which is also crucial for healthy nail and hair growth). To keep the smoothie tasty and packed with vitamin c we added in some strawberries and mangos. To keep the smoothie cold and creamy we also added in some frozen bananas. We also included a protein powder in this smoothie to get in that protein which our nails and hair thrive off of. We hope you enjoy!
This is just approximately what we used in our smoothie. You can add more or less of any ingredient e.g. add more fruit for more sweetness or add less spinach for less bitterness.
½ – 1 Frozen Banana
¼ – ½ Cup frozen mango
4 – 5 Strawberries
2 Handfuls of Spinach
Protein Powder of your choice (optional)
1,5 – 2 Cups of water (start with less and add more to reach desired consistency)
Easy: Mix all ingredients in a mixer ;)
Lots of Love,
