Did you know that 75 to 90% of Americans are vitamin D deficient? And if you are a vegetarian or vegan, it’s even more likely that you don’t get enough vitamin D.
I’m all for eating less meat, and in fact, I eat mostly vegan myself. But because of that, I know how important it is to get vitamin D from the sun, supplements, and the few food sources I eat. We’ll discuss this in detail on Thursday, so be sure to look for my blog post, Most Americans Are Vitamin D Deficient – Why That’s Dangerous.
Until then, I’ll let you in on the best plant-based source of D3, and that is almond and coconut milk that is fortified with vitamin D3. It’s important that your favorite brand is fortified, so take a moment to check, because otherwise you cannot absorb the calcium in the nut milk.
This smoothie recipe is full of calcium, along with other vitamins, minerals, fiber, and healthy fat. It combines frozen banana and blueberries with kale, coconut milk, and the flavor of cinnamon and ginger.
If you’re tired of the same old smoothie, give this refreshingly unique flavor a try with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen right now.
Let me know what you think over on Facebook.
