The must-have toppings on your smoothies. Life Smoothies.

If you’re a fan of smoothies, I’m sure you’d like to give them that extra culinary and aesthetic touch. Toppings are just that extra touch your smoothie needs to turn out absolutely perfect. There are as many options and combinations as there are smoothies, so in this article we recommend some that can make your favourite drink a little more fun. Take note.

• Seeds

Here we can choose from many types of seeds, from chia, flax, pumpkin. These seeds help enhance the nutritional value of our smoothies. They have great nutritional properties, for example, they are a great source of fibre and protein. Some, like pumpkin, have anti-inflammatory properties and are a perfect complement to give an even healthier addition to your favourite smoothie.

• Cereals

In this section we have some cereals like quinoa, oats and granola. The first is gluten-free, helps keep cholesterol at bay and has a high amount of fibre. Oats are a source of vitamins A, B, E and D, provide good amounts of magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and small doses of calcium, folic acid and are very rich in manganese. Granola, on the other hand, offers a crunchier and sweeter touch but also many other properties such as fibre, vitamin E, folic acid and antioxidant properties.

• Berries

Some berries such as redcurrants, blueberries, raspberries, are always perfect in your smoothies. They are small, decorative and also have antioxidant and diuretic properties and are rich in vitamin C.

• Grated fruit

Another ideal topping for your smoothies is grated fruit to give it a unique touch. For example, you can use coconut or others like apple or mango, and if you’re really adventurous you can also choose grated vegetables like cucumber or carrot.

• Spices

For example, cinnamon is an ideal topping to enhance the sweet taste of your smoothie. If you have even more of a sweet tooth, you can choose a chocolate and grate it to sprinkle over your smoothie.
