These creamy concoctions are easy to whip up and come with a ton of benefits.
Smoothies have made their way into the lives of several celebrities, and most of them swear by it, claiming that this concoction is the secret to their active lifestyle. Per Healthline, the versatile beverages are even being marketed as a healthy food item, given how it increases intake of fruits, vegetables, and a bunch of other healthy ingredients.
You can make one of these thick, creamy beverages either at home or get one from a store. They will help you remain full for a while making sure you get your daily fix of nutrition and fiber. But, make sure that the store-bought ones aren't loaded with sugar. WebMD says that in some cases, it can also be used as a tool to facilitate weight loss if used correctly.
Every celebrity has a unique smoothie recipe that they swear by, and the 13 going on 30 star Jennifer Garner also shared a recipe that she consumes regularly. She took to Instagram to share a video of her whipping it up, and she even penned the entire recipe down, reports Women's Health.
Garner reportedly jumped onto the smoothie bandwagon while preparing for her movie, Peppermint, after she started working with celeb nutritionist Kelly LeVeque.
LeVeque is known for what she calls her Fab Four formula: a drink with enough protein, fat, fiber and greens to keep you full for hours.
The Be Well Smoothie that she created for Garner has fairly simple ingredients that you can find anywhere.

1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon almond butter
