From scrunchies to fanny packs, some '90s trends are back. But you don't have to settle for a sugar-loaded mall smoothie to relive the '90s. Holistic nutritionist celebrity health coach Kelly LeVeque shares a '90s throwback smoothie recipe that will take you right back to the nostalgia of your mall days, but with better-for-you ingredients.
This '90s smoothie recipe calls for ingredients that support healthy blood sugar levels and help prevent food cravings. This is because this throwback smoothie uses LeVeque's signature Fab Four™ formula, which includes protein, fat, fiber and greens. "This smoothie formula helps you start the day right by accessing stored energy," says LeVeque.
LeVeque explains that adding protein to your smoothie helps promote balanced blood sugar levels, while fat and fiber help slow the absorption of nutrients, including glucose. Next, add greens, fruits or vegetables for a boost of vitamins and minerals. This formula keeps you feeling full longer to stop food cravings in their tracks.
A '90s Smoothie With Better-for-you Ingredients
LeVeque's recipe isn't your typical food court smoothie. This '90s smoothie recipe calls for wheatgrass. With its vibrant green color, wheatgrass is abundant in chlorophyll and is a natural source of magnesium, iron, and other trace minerals.
Another superfood ingredient in this throwback smoothie is chia seeds. Chia seeds are packed with nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. Chia seeds also are an excellent source of fiber, which helps support healthy digestion.
Whether you're looking to bring back the joy of your mall-going days or just want a healthy and delicious breakfast smoothie, LeVeque's '90s throwback smoothie will hit the spot without the sugar crash.
