The Best Smoothies for Latinas Who Are Ready to Run the World

Nourishing our bodies and practicing self-care is among the most important things you can do for yourself. 

If we do not take care of ourselves, we cannot expect to flourish. We must pay attention to what we use to feed and fuel our bodies to grow and prosper. 

For this reason, we need to make a solid effort to nurture our bodies and minds to be ready to take on the world. 

As we commemorate yet another International Women’s Day, let’s take a moment to run through some of the best smoothies for Latinas ready to run the world.

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 help 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, 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 chia seeds, a superfood 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 tremendous 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!

Other smoothies you should keep on your radar

Protein Berry Smoothie

As we go through our busy, fast-paced lives, we sometimes need the energy to cross off our entire to-do list. Protein is an excellent way of getting power, as it “takes longer than carbohydrates to break down in the body, providing a longer-lasting energy source,” as reported by CNN

Latinas are known for their love of fruits and berries, so this smoothie is perfect for boosting energy and indulging in something you enjoy.

You will need your favorite frozen berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries, your milk of choice, and vanilla protein powder. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s super customizable, and you can rest assured that you’ll get all the energy you know to run the world. 

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

In need of an extra boost of brain power to take on the day? Smoothies that incorporate cocoa are great for when you need to focus, as cocoa stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter phenylethylamine (PEA), which boosts focus and awareness. 

For this recipe, you will need unsweetened almond milk, frozen cherries, banana, and cocoa powder. You can also throw in a cup of spinach for some added vitamins. You won’t even feel the taste of the spinach as the cocoa and milk will mask the flavor. 

Pineapple Smoothie 

It’s no secret that many Latinas love to put pineapple on just about anything. From adding it to their pizzas and hot dogs and even creating jam with this tart fruit, pineapple is everywhere. 

This pineapple smoothie is refreshing and gives us all the tropical vacation vibes we yearn to have year-round. For this recipe, you will need pineapple, coconut milk, and banana. If you want the smoothie to be sweet, add honey and pure vanilla extract to taste.
