A smoothie is an excellent option for a quick morning meal or a snack on the trail. You can make it in minutes before leaving the campsite and sip it on the go.
What is a smoothie?
A smoothie is a thick shake type drink made from blended fruit or vegetables and other nutrient-dense ingredients such as juices, dairy products or nut butter.
Why is smoothie good for the trail?
- It’s quick and easy to make. Making a smoothie from powdered/dehydrated ingredients doesn’t take as long as preparing a full breakfast meal, giving you more time to enjoy your adventure.
- Improves digestion.
Blending fruits and vegetables together breaks down the cells of plants and unlocks the nutrients to maximize their delivery to your body.
- Fuels you up for a great day on the trail.
Since a smoothie is consumed in the most optimum way for digestion and the absorption of nutrients, you’ll have more energy to get things done and enjoy your day.
- Helps build muscles and improves athletic performance.
Smoothies provide your body with the nutrients it needs to excel during a long day hike and helps you to recover after physical activity.
- Helps meet your body’s daily nutritional needs.
Consuming the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables while you are on a backpacking trip can be a challenge. Having a smoothie is a convenient and great-tasting way to get your daily allowance of fruits and vegetables.
