A Clearly Organic customer Kathleen W wrote in and asked about making an everyday smoothie with extra protein. This is a great question that has multiple answers. There are lots of fun ways to implement a smoothie routine with a wide variety of natural organic foods. Adding protein based foods to a smoothie helps slow down the digestion process of your meal making you feel full longer. It also helps add thickness and flavor to a fruit or vegetable smoothie.
Here are six natural foods that add protein to a smoothie:
– Flax Seeds
– Nut butters
– Chia Seeds
– Plain Yogurt
Each of these protein based foods can also be found in an organic variety if desired. Watch our blog in the New Year for natural protein smoothie recipes. This is a great way to start off 2017!
