My kids love this creamy smoothie and they don’t even realize eating healthy nuts and seeds which they wouldn’t normally eat.
Health benefits of the ingredients:
Strawberries can help with heart disease, stroke, cancer, blood pressure, constipation, allergies and asthma, diabetes, pregnancy, depression, nutritional breakdown.
Wild blueberries are the king of antioxidant food that can reduce DNA damage. They are great for brainpower and memory improvement, healthy bones and healthy heart and so much more.
Banana is sweet and filling and therefore great for smoothies.They are high in fibre which is good for digestion but also rich in magnesium and potassium which might prevent muscle cramps.
Seeds have essential fatty acids and are high in protein, they are also chock-full of antioxidants and high in fiber which helps boost your metabolism.
Dairy has essential vitamins and fatty acids – Milk is quite nutritious, but the nutrient composition varies between the different types of dairy. For example scientists have published a study showing that dairy from grass-fed or pasture raised cows contains more fat soluble vitamins (A, D, K2) and beneficial fatty acids (short chain, CLA and omega-3’s), along with lower levels of inflammatory fats typically found in milk from grain-fed, conventionally raised cows.
Essential minerals & electrolytes– Especially raw milk (unpasturazed and unhomogenated) is a high source of essential minerals and electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium and potassium which people are often lacking in their diet. Unfortunately high-heat pasteurization destroys most of these minerals.
Diabetes 2 prevention – Looking at more than 3,300 people, researchers found that people with the highest byproducts of full-dairy products enjoyed a 46 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to people who ate less full-fat dairy.
Help for obesity – Researchers studied more than 18,000 women and found the ones who consumed more full-fat dairy were 8 percent less likely to be overweight or obese compared to the low-fat dairy group.
