Easy Strawberry Smoothie – Full Recipe

Are strawberry smoothies good for you? The answer is a resounding YES – the humble strawberry is actually a powerhouse in disguise.

Strawberries have a surprisingly high Vitamin C content – in fact 1 cup of strawberries (roughly 165g) has almost 150% of your daily recommended intake, helping to support your immune system. Strawberries also contain several types of antioxidants – molecules that scavenge free radicals from the body cells and prevent or reduce the damage caused by oxidation.  They have good amounts of fibre and folate – (also known as vitamin B-9, which is important in red blood cell formation and for healthy cell growth and function). Strawberries may help curb inflammation, manage your blood sugar, and guard against health conditions like high cholesterol, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. See what I mean?!
