This habit is just one of many reasons why the humble smoothie has become the breakfast choice of millions of Americans striving for a healthy yet convenient lifestyle. Despite countless smoothie suppliers popping up all over the US, nothing can compete with a homemade smoothie loving prepared in your own kitchen, making use of only the finest ingredients, such as tiger nuts
Benefits of starting your day with a tiger nut smoothie
A nutrient-dense smoothie is a lot easier to digest than a plate of bacon, eggs, and toast. Not only do the nutrients reach your bloodstream faster, but smoothies are also significantly easier on your digestive system. Tiger nuts are rich in zinc, copper, iron, and magnesium, which, when combined with other ingredients with revitalizing properties, can supply you with sustained energy throughout a very busy day. If you work out early in the morning you might have found that doing so on a full stomach is difficult. By having a tiger nut smoothie for breakfast you won't feel sluggish during your workout, allowing you to exercise to the best of your ability. Apart from boosting your mental and physical performance, having a smoothie for breakfast can also boost your weight loss efforts while safeguarding you against cancer, cardiac disease, and even diabetes.

It is very easy to start your day the right way by incorporating the Tiger Nuts SMOOTHIE Mix into your favorite breakfast blend. By simply adding 3 tablespoons of the mix into your favorite ingredients and blending it together you will be left with a delicious and nutritious smoothie that will prepare you for a long day ahead. There is no wrong way to make a smoothie. As long as you stick to healthy ingredients and add enough liquid to make it drinkable you are free to experiment with all the flavor combinations you can come up with.
Oatmeal is always a winner
A smoothie consisting of banana and oatmeal is not only filled with protein and fiber but also provides immense amounts of sustainable energy. You can whip up your own delicious oatmeal smoothie by blending together 150ml (5fl oz) cow/almond/coconut milk, 25g (1oz) rolled oats, 1 ½ chopped banana, 1 tsp flax seeds, 3 tbsp tiger nut smoothie mix and a handful of ice. If the smoothie is not sweet enough, you can add a teaspoon of honey or a natural sweetener such as Xylitol or Stevia.
Green is more than a color
Green smoothies have long been touted as nutritional powerhouses and come in all shapes and sizes. You can put a deliciously-tropical twist on the traditional green smoothie by blending together a range of quality ingredients. In your blender, mix together a cup of cubed, frozen pineapple, a cup coconut milk, a handful of spinach or kale, 3 tbsp tiger nut smoothie mix, half a banana, and a tsp honey. If you want your smoothie to pack a more powerful punch you can add a scoop of Spirulina and 1 tsp of flax seeds for added benefit.
Smoothies are without a doubt one of the most interesting and versatile breakfast foods known to man. There is no limit to what you can add to your smoothie and as long as you get the basics right, you are bound to come up with some very tantalizing combinations while you experiment with various ingredients.
