Whether you promised yourself you wanted to eat more fruits and veggies this year or you just love blended drinks, eating healthier is way more delicious (and fun) in the form of a smoothie. Many people drink a smoothie daily, from protein shakes to green drinks smoothies are a cult-favorite treat. But one smoothie that is unbeatable (in our eyes anyway)? Sweet berry drinks. If you make it with the right amount of sugar and ingredients, your smoothie can be healthy and tasty without it needing to be packed with vegetables. Check out Giada De Laurentiis’ smoothie recipe for your new go-to health kick in 2021.

De Laurentiis wrote on Instagram, “Healthy smoothies that taste like dessert? We’re all here for it. This strawberry almond banana smoothie is the perfect combo for a sweet way to kick off the day!” After looking at that picture we have one thing to say: YUM!

To master De Laurentiis’ sweet treat the smoothie’s key ingredients are strawberries, almond butter, and a banana — and are blended to perfection. Don’t have a blender yet? We love the NutriBullet blender and it’s on sale now.

It takes only five minutes to make and your smoothie is perfect to enjoy during breakfast or as an afternoon snack. It’s packed full of the nutrient-rich fruit you need to keep you energized and full for long days with late dinners.

Unlike what you might drink from store-bought options, gathering fresh produce for your smoothie, and monitoring how much sugar you include will all be at your discretion. In fact, De Laurentiis’ recipe uses no sugar and opts for a pinch of salt instead.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
