CBD smoothies are a great fit for any healthy lifestyle. Depending on your own preferences, smoothies can pack all sorts of vegetables, fruits, superfoods, nuts, seeds, dairy, and more. They’re a source of endless variation; you can discover new creations every day! Best of all, they’re super-easy to make and great for carrying with you wherever you go. But did you know that a smoothie is also the perfect healthy drink to mix with CBD? Basically, CBD is a superfood in itself, taking your wholesome smoothie to a whole new level of, well… wholesomeness! This blog is meant to get you started with three lovely CBD smoothie recipes served as an inspiration – feel free to add your own creations! CBD Oil goes with smoothies of any type and flavour, so just add CBD and enjoy your fresh glass of daily support!

What Makes Smoothies So Healthy

Smoothies are the ideal choice for breakfast or lunch, and they’re super easy to make at home. Simply chop up some fruit and vegetables, add some nuts or seeds, some water, dairy (or dairy alternatives) and finish off with a splash of CBD Oil. Put it all in a blender and serve a healthy dose of great taste in a matter of seconds. Better yet: make a little extra and put it in the fridge. You just can’t beat a personal supply of chilled CBD smoothies waiting for you when you finish your morning run!

The basic ingredients for smoothies are fruits and veggies, guaranteeing a steady supply of healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. Of course, that’s great news for your health; these nutrients support digestion while reducing risks of cardiac disease, osteoporosis, and more besides. They even help prevent inflammation, further boosting CBD’s own potential in this area.

Your Daily Dose Of Health; Nice, Smooth & Easy

An adult person ought to eat (or drink!) at least 400 grams of fruits and vegetables every day. Even though that is a bare minimum, most people fail to meet the mark most days. Smoothies provide a quick, easy, and tasty way to ramp up your daily intake of fruits and veggies. In fact, you can even ‘hide’ products in them that don’t taste so great, because the flavour will just disappear in the mix you create. That’s a fabulous way to make sure you get your daily dose of vitamins!

What’s more, drinking smoothies is also a great way to make sure you get enough fibre. These help keep your digestive system in shape, which in turn prevents constipation, promotes healthy bowel movements and cultivates beneficial gastrointestinal bacteria.

The final touch of adding CBD Oil to your already healthy smoothie makes for a powerful combination, able to boost your health in more than one way. CBD is a natural plant cannabinoid that can have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and soothing effects. It’s an all-natural product that goes with any healthy diet, including vegetarian, vegan, and halal lifestyles.

Don’t Add Too Much Sugar To Your Smoothie

In general, adding fruit to your smoothie sweetens up the mix; vegetables often bring a touch of bitterness instead. Still, you should be careful not to add too much fruity sweetness to your smoothies. For all their healthy contributions, most kinds of fruit contain lots of sugars. Even if these are called fruit sugars, they’re every bit as bad for you as any regular type of sugar. That’s why you should try to strike a healthy balance between fruits and vegetables in your CBD smoothie.

One way to tackle that balance is trying to emphasize vegetables. There are more different veggie flavours to try than you might think at first. The more fruit you add, the more sugar you get, and those can cause blood sugar fluctuations. Try to aim for a 70% veg, 30% fruit ratio and you should be good.
