Time compressed but quality driven, we’re always on the lookout for a sneaky substitution. Being the matriarch for your family is a tough job, the multi-tasking knows no bounds, and while we can single-handedly feed a small army, somehow, we neglect our own nutrition requirements. The 5-10 veggies and fruits we’re supposed to be getting each day aren’t going to eat themselves you know! While smoothies are nothing new, they continue to evolve, incorporating science backed sustenance into a single serving, usually best consumed in between meetings/hockey practices/dog parks.

Second Cup invited us to try their new line of smoothies, a.k.a, our fave liquid lunch. Bright eyes, better hair, nicer skin? Check, check and check! The benefits of eating a diet rich in healthy fats is good for you, sure, but why stop there? Sign me up for the vanity bonus package- and Second Cup’s smoothie menu offers all nine essential amino acids, heart loving Omega-3 and Omega-6, fibre and protein and minerals. Vegan and gluten-free, these powerhouses can be amped up a scoop of hemp based protein powder, and are part of their Clean Label program, so there’s no gross fake colours, preservatives, flavours or high-fructose corn syrup. Serving up Green Mango Boost, Strawberry Banana Glow with Flax and Almond Date with Flax, there’s a whole banana in each smoothie.
