The NK Smoothie For Strong Bones

I am 5’4”,  lactose intolerant, and I don’t go in the sun. Add menopause and the need to take care of your bones. I work out every day, I do weight bearing exercises, I take Vitamin D3, Vitamin K, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, and I eat a clean diet.

However, I wasn’t seeing progress in my bone density so I created a smoothie for my bones and I am seeing some improvement.

This works for me and it is packed with nutrition so I am sharing the recipe here.

I use a NutriBullet (I have one at home and at work) so I can create different smoothies everyday. However this is my go to:

SMOOTHIE
FOR STRONG BONES
20oz

- 2 cups of frozen spinach or kale*
- One ripe avocado
- 2 packets of Powdered Nutrient Greens
- 4 to 8 oz of liquid of your choice - water or nut milks

I like thick smoothies, the amount of water you add is how you regulate the smoothie flow.

Optional Additions:

Collagen
Probiotics
Fresh Ginger

Helpful tips:

Chew your smoothies - it activates the digestive juices. It helps to add a handful of raw almonds as you sip your megawatt smoothie.
*I freeze my fresh greens so I can use as needed. You can also use fresh or store-frozen greens.
