Certain nutrients, many of which are found in our summer smoothies in Wakefield, can even offer an immunity boost, offer skin health benefits, provide an energy boost, and even support safe blood sugar levels and cardiovascular health. You might be surprised to discover which of our Rhode Island fruit smoothies offer the best benefits. Stop by for the best lunch in Wakefield and enjoy a tasty and healthy smoothie today!
Immunity + Healthy Skin Boosters
When looking for an immunity boost, make sure to choose smoothies that offer a combination of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as zinc and protein. Those same vitamins and minerals can also help your body to get rid of free radicals, which can cause damage to the skin and increase signs of aging. When choosing a healthy fat to combine with your breakfast or dinner smoothie, make sure to pick foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help the skin to stay strong and firm. Our mango and passion fruit smoothies would be a good choice for immunity and skin benefits.
Energy + Healthy Blood Sugar Boosters
Unlike caffeine-rich drinks that can provide energy but end up with a mid-afternoon crash, fruit smoothies can offer energy-boosting nutrition. Good choices include bananas and berries, like in our strawberry-banana smoothie or wildberry smoothie options. Natural sugars that come from the fruit, along with fiber, B vitamins, and magnesium, are all excellent for boosting energy without loads of processed sugar and caffeine. Speaking of sugar, keeping blood sugar under control can be a challenge. Look for smoothies that contain a well-rounded combination of fiber, protein, good fats, and natural carbohydrates to avoid blood sugar spikes.
When searching for foods that will support cardiovascular health, think of phytonutrients and polyphenols that come from plant-based ingredients. Folate, magnesium, fiber, and healthy fats can all work together to help keep your heart healthy and lower the bad LDL cholesterol while raising the good HDL cholesterol. A healthy diet can also help to lower blood pressure. Good choices include apples, like our Granny Smith apple smoothie and berries, such as our strawberry smoothie, and meals that contain whole grains, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds.
