Superfoods are what they say on the tin: foods that are naturally super good for you and chock full of added health bonuses. Including superfoods in your diet is an excellent way of making sure you're getting all of the nutrients you need in daily life, and what better way to include them in one fell swoop than a smoothie? Wheely Good Smoothies is no stranger to superfoods. In fact, most of our smoothies include at least one superfood! Let's take a look at a few of our favorites.
Our Purple Rain smoothie contains two superfoods: blueberries and coconut water. Blueberries are, to quote Healthline, the King of Antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our bodies from unstable atoms and molecules that would otherwise damage our cells.
Blueberries aren't the only superstar in this smoothie–with coconut water as the base liquid, the Purple Rain smoothie hydrates, replenishes electrolytes, and may even contribute to lowering blood sugar.
There may only be one superfood in this smoothie but it is a DOOZY. Ginger is absolutely stacked with components to help your health. Ginger has antimicrobial properties that have been used to help treat colds for centuries. Not only this, but ginger is amazing for your digestive health and is even known to be a powerful treatment for nausea, even easing symptoms for people with morning sickness.
Not feeling nauseous or sick? Don't worry, ginger still has benefits for you. This spicy root also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help prevent things like diabetes and heart disease.
Beets might catch some people off guard with this–it's a superfood, sure, but in a smoothie? Our answer is absolutely. Beets are naturally sweet and the deep red coloring is absolutely beautiful, but outside the flavor and aesthetic bonuses, beets are a textbook superfood.
Antioxidant rich, high in fiber, and full of vitamin C, beets are a fantastic addition to your diet (or our smoothies). Studies even show that beets have powerful health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure and even helping to prevent cancer.
This is only a small selection of our superfood smoothies, and an even smaller selection of our recipe collection. Wheely Good Smoothies is always striving to create new, tastier, and healthier recipes.
