The Drink For When You’d Rather Be Eating Cake
Standout Superfoods: Sweet potato, kefir
Health Benefits: We know you’re thinking “sweet potato in a smoothie?” but hear us out. These root veggies are high in beta-carotene, which helps maintain good eye health and may help lower the risk of breast cancer. They’re also high in fiber to help you feel more satisfied now and less likely to overeat later. Their candy-like flavor is perfect with the banana, pineapple and spice in this drink from Daily Harvest. Kefir offers protein and probiotics, which help maintain a healthy microbiome (research suggests that good gut bacteria may play a role in preventing autoimmune conditions, heart disease, and even mental health issues).
