B3H+® Summer Body Fruit Smoothie
This fabulous fruit smoothie is an ideal muscle-building post workout sweet treat without breaking your fat loss goals. It contains 17 grams of our B3H+® high quality, vegan/vegetarian pea protein, plus a variety of vitamin-rich fruits, fiber and even greens to support body cleansing.
Green powders are growing in popularity and for good reason. They are readily available to us in a powder form which makes eating our daily veggie quota a attainable goal. We recommend Moringa leaf powder for smoothies because it adds 5 grams of fiber and all the essential amino acids that make this super food a complete protein. The leaf powder is also packed with vitamins A, B, E and several hormone boosting minerals, including magnesium and phosphorus.
Rich in Fiber
Another critical component of a hormone balancing, fat-burning smoothie is fiber. This smoothie contains multiple sources of fiber: Berries, Chia Seeds and Moringa. When we eat fiber, by which we mean vegetables, seeds and low sugar fruit, we release specific hormones, like leptin, which tells the brain when we are full and to stop eating. Fiber also slows gastric emptying which decreases cravings and the insulin response.
In order for you get the fiber you need to stabilize blood sugars and squash your cravings, you’ll want to increase fiber slowly, so your body can adapt. Aiming to get a minimum of 30 grams a day. In order to achieve this minimum effective dose, our B3H+® Functional Nutritionist, Angela Russo recommends eating at least 5 servings of fiber-rich vegetables and fruits a day (or via a fiber rich supplements in powder form).
So go ahead, hit the weights hard at the gym, then restore, reset and rehydrate with this powerhouse smoothie!
