One of the main rules of dieting is to not drink your calories, meaning you should avoid things such as soda and other sugary drinks. But smoothies are a great way to supplement a meal or snack and not sacrifice any nutritional value.

Smoothies also make it easy to pack a lot of nutrients into a tasty little package. I don’t know about you but on a day-to-day basis I don’t eat greens and fruits as much as recommended. Adding them into your daily smoothie is a great way to catch up on anything you might be missing.

In that same vein adding supplements to your smoothie makes it even better! Smoothies are great bases for adding in protein powder, protein packed yogurt or your KBA supplements.

KBA’s Pine Pollen is great for an everyday boost or even a pre and post workout supplement. It boosts energy, vitality and immunity. It also aids in joint pain relief, menopause relief and sexual function.

KBA’s Pine Needle Powder is great to add to a smoothie if you are seeking allergy relief or a boost to your immune system. It’s also a great supplement for hair, skin and eye health.
