Smoothie Ingredients to Love

My inner foodie gets so excited thinking about all the new food trends to embrace next year. I'm going to clue you in on a few of my favorites:

Floral Ingredients

You can expect to see both fresh and dried herbs in everything from smoothies to lattes to pancake syrup. Lavender, rose, and hibiscus will be highlighted flowers this year.

 

My personal favorite is lavender because it's so calming! A mixture of dried edible flowers can make a beautiful topping for this wild blueberry smoothie.

Powders

While powdered peanut butter has long been growing in popularity, we're going to see even more powdered ingredients gaining rank, from matcha to powdered eggs.

 

If you want to add extra protein to a recipe, powdered eggs and powdered egg whites are good options because they're less processed than many other protein powders. The protein helps keep your blood sugar levels stable and helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

 

I don't usually suggest protein powders, but egg powder is a one-ingredient, food-based product I can actually get behind. Want to try egg powder yourself? Here are a few good picks:

Wild Ingredients

As you probably know, I'm a big fan of wild ingredients such as wild blueberries because these foods can contain more nutrients than some of their conventional counterparts.

 

Wild blueberries, for example, offer twice the antioxidants of cultivated blueberriesand eating an antioxidant-rich diet may help decrease the risk of cancer and heart disease.

How to Make a Lavender Smoothie

 

Now let's get to smoothie making! I decided to combine these three food trends into one delicious lavender blueberry smoothie, so I blended together frozen wild blueberries with dried lavender and powdered eggs.

 

I sipped this smoothie first thing in the morning, and it presented such a calming start to my day!

 

And here's a bonus: The wild blueberry smoothie recipe is made with a few protein-offering ingredients, including milk, plain Greek yogurt, and powdered eggs. That blueberry Greek yogurt combo is delish!

 

Because of this, it offers an excellent amount of protein, 28 grams, which would also make it a great choice to sip post workout to help build and repair muscles.
