wheat germ smoothie

If you were at all wondering about wheat germ and why we would feature a Wheat Germ Smoothie, Here is what Wikipedia has to say about wheat germ: “Wheat germ is a concentrated source of several essential nutrients including Vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorus, thiamin, zinc and magnesium, as well as essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols. Wheat germ can be added to protein shakes, casseroles, muffins, pancakes, cereals, yogurt, smoothies, cookies, and other goods. Wheat germ can become rancid if not properly stored in a refrigerator or freezer, and away from sunlight.”

Sounds like its perfect ingredient for a healthy smoothie!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 frozen┬ábanana (TIP: Peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING!)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh peaches
  • 1 cup vanilla low-or nonfat yogurt (For a heftier consistency, try Greek yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice (Fresh is best, much less sugar)
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • Ice to taste
