How To Add Nutrafol To Cold Summer Recipes

Nutrafol is a natural hair growth supplement made to be taken with food, but did you know the capsules can be opened and emptied into cold treats like smoothies and açai bowls? 

Simply twist the capsule and pull it open to release the plant-powered ingredients into food. Just be sure to only incorporate Nutrafol into cold recipes. You see, once ingredients like vitamin A, C, D, and E are exposed to heat, they can become more sensitive and unstable, impacting their potency and effectiveness. However, incorporating your Nutrafol into cold recipes can actually slow down nutrient breakdown and protect the hair-supporting ingredients as they travel through your body. So you can certainly add Nutrafol to foods like your morning smoothie, but remember to drink up sooner rather than later, as letting it sit around for too long leaves the ingredients vulnerable to losing nutrient power. 

Now that you know how to add Nutrafol to food, read on for some chilled summer recipes that you can sprinkle your four pills a day into.

Cold soup in the summer is underrated, especially when it’s packed with beneficial fat like cashews and coconut milk. This gazpacho recipe lets you add Nutrafol to a more savory meal. For this preparation, we recommend adding Nutrafol at the end: simply portion out your soup, add your Nutrafol, and give it a quick stir before eating.

This mint smoothie recipe is sure to come in handy when the summer heat is in full swing. We suggest using the optional protein powder — and feel free to use ice cubes instead of bananas if you don’t have any on hand or want to cut down on sugar.

Looking to get really creative with your Nutrafol? Add it to salad dressing. You can make this recipe in full, keeping the dressing separate (and chilled) until mealtime. When you’re ready to eat, portion out your dressing, add in your Nutrafol, and give it another quick blend. Be sure to serve immediately, as it won’t stay cold for very long.
