One of the most common mistakes I see people make with smoothies is just focusing on the fruits that they add. Fruit is sweet so it definitely is appealing in the flavor, however, it’s not going to offer sustainable energy.
It’s important to balance the fruit out with protein and fat.
In this particular recipe, the protein comes from the collagen peptides which can support gut health as well. The healthy fat comes from the coconut milk and avocado – both of which are great sources of fuel for our brain and help us to stay full longer.
The addition of the ginger, happens to be one of my favorite culinary flavors, but also is an inflammatory powerhouse in and of itself!
