Good-For-You Fuel

• Scientific whey: A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that whey protein can help rev up fat-burning metabolism. Plus, it’s the go-to protein source for fitness competitors looking to build lean muscle.

• Naturally delicious: Peaches are frozen at the peak of their summer ripeness, so you can store them in your freezer for use any time you want a taste of summer. Adding frozen peaches to your smoothies is a great way to load up on potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C.

• A taste of maple: Try using a little bit of maple syrup as a sweetener in your homemade smoothies. Studies have shown that it possesses a range of anti-aging antioxidants.

• Nutty truth: Using almond butter in your smoothies adds creaminess and good amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. Almond butter has been shown to help elevate levels of healthy HDL cholesterol, which is known for its role in fending off heart disease.

Shopping Tip: Make sure to buy frozen peaches that don’t contain any added sugar!
