Now, let’s take a glance at the impressive benefits of every single ingredient in this smoothie!
The tartness of fresh lemons is a great way to start the day!
One lemon provides half of the recommended daily dosage of vitamin C. Vitamin C boosts your immune system and supports healthy skin and blood vessels.
Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and magnesium — these nutrients are essential for heart health and can help lower blood pressure. The fiber in bananas helps improve digestion and slows spikes in blood sugar.
Who would have thought of adding cauliflower to a smoothie? This is the secret ingredient!
Cauliflower is an amazing addition to your smoothies as it offers tons of nutrients and won’t add a weird flavor to your smoothie recipes.
Cauliflower has an exceptional amount of vitamin C — even more than oranges and lemons! As a member of the Brassica family, cauliflower is loaded with anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Coconut butter is the meat of the coconut and is spreadable like peanut butter.
Like other coconut products, coconut butter is loaded with amazing health benefits. Coconut contains lauric acid that helps fight harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and infections.
Coconut is a healthy saturated fat that can help regulate hunger and improves your brain function.
Collagen peptides contain essential amino acids that are highly bioavailable.
They are building blocks for renewing bodily tissues like the skin, bones, and joints. Collagen is an excellent replacement for protein powders that may contain other added ingredients.
Coconut milk adds more healthy fats to this amazing smoothie, helping to keep you feeling full and satisfied until lunch!
