If 2020 taught us anything, it’s to take care of our health. Even when we work from home, our eating routines and kitchen habits can make a big difference in our productivity. As we organize our new schedules and plan how we are going to conquer the “new” world, our diet needs a plan too! One of the best health-allies? Delicious, healthy and energizing smoothies to jumpstart the day.

Here are three healthy, Latin-inspired smoothies that will help you run the world, one sip at a time!

TROPICAL BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Exotic fruits like papaya and mango aren’t just there for the taste. Papayas are rich in vitamin C, B vitamins, folate and flavonoids. They’re also a good source of potassium, copper, magnesium and fiber. Mangos are also high in vitamin C as well as vitamin A. Add banana, avocado (a superfood that’s a great source of protein and “good” fat), and strawberries to complete a rich and tasty smoothie. Finally, add some Greek yogurt, which is high in probiotics that help your digestive system, and helps you feel fuller for longer. ¡Lista para el día!

Ingredients and Preparation:

1 Cup Papaya chunks

1 Cup Mango chunks

1 Cup Banana

1/2 Cup Strawberries

1/2 Avocado

1/2 skim milk

1/2 Greek yogurt

Add all ingredients to a blender. Process until smooth. Pour in a glass and garnish with parsley.

DETOX SMOOTHIE VERDE

Green detox smoothies are among the most popular smoothies around, with good reason. Apart from containing a perfect balance of fruits and vegetables, they’re a fantastic way to cleanse your body after months of not-too-clean eating. Finally, this smoothie packs an extra punch with the addition of chia seeds, a superfood that’s been called one of the world’s most nutritious foods. Rich in calcium, magnesium and iron, high in fiber and heart-healthy omega-3 fats (a “good” fat), and a great source of B-vitamins, chia seeds offer many health benefits to help you detox.

Ingredients and Preparation:

1 Apple

1 Kiwi

1 cup Parsley

2 cups Spinach

1 cup water

1 tablespoon Chia seeds

Add all ingredients to a blender. Process until smooth. Enjoy!

PIÑA COLADA SMOOTHIE

This smoothie is more than just a taste of the tropics! It also has wonderful health benefits. Let’s start with the pineapple, which is naturally high in fiber and can help improve digestion. You also get plenty of vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamins A and C, as well as folic acid. Coconut is an excellent antioxidant and also helps keep you hydrated.  Finally, chia seeds make another appearance in this one, because they give you an easy way to get your daily intake of many nutrients.

Ingredients and Preparation:

1 cup frozen Pineapple chunks

1 cup fresh Coconut meat

1 cup Coconut milk

1 tablespoon Chia seeds

Put all the ingredients in a blender. Mix until smooth. Garnish with a pineapple triangle!
