Some nutritionists called the smoothies „meals in a can”. This easy definition is correct, but you need to stay strong after you’ve prepared your smoothie because some additional tablespoons of sugar will ruin the benefits of it.

PS: The “Do It Yourself” version is equally or even healthier than the original recipe!

Original Recipe: just fresh apple juice, pineapple, spinach, kale, chia seeds, and ice, with no added sugar. A 12-ounce serving contains 160 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 35 grams of carb, with 4 grams as fiber, and 3 grams of protein.

Do It Yourself Version: The gain a great balance of macronutrients and boost up the fiber in the smoothie, you can blend a cored green apple and a cup of frozen pineapple, a half cup of kale and one of spinach, a quarter of ripe avocado, one scoop of plant-based protein powder and a tablespoon of chia seeds.

Some additional ingredients will increase the smoothie’s anti-inflammatory power and the number of antioxidants. For this, you need to toss in a one-inch cube of fresh peeled ginger root.

This smoothie is recommended to replace your breakfast or, if you’re going constantly to gym, it is a great muscle feeder. Also, it will give you an useful post-workout recovery.

New stats after DIY adds: 330 calories, 11 grams of fat, 44 grams of carb with 13 grams as fiber, and 18.5 grams of protein.
