Tired of eating salads? Try drinking one instead with the Salad in a Glass Smoothie recipe. It is easy to get your daily greens by drinking a tasty smoothie. We all know that spinach is a super green vegetable, which can be eaten in lieu of a multivitamin, but romaine lettuce is packed with nutrients as well and has a much milder flavor when used in smoothie recipes. It is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, and contains almost every other vitamin and mineral known to man (and most likely some that have not yet been identified). Surprisingly, romaine even contains omega-3 fatty acids and protein.
At only fifteen grams net carbohydrates per serving, this smoothie satisfies your sweet cravings while providing blood sugar balancing soy protein to satisfy your hunger. Use this smoothie as part of your weight loss plan or simply as a satisfying, guilt-free dessert. For a milder flavor, use less cantaloupe and more watermelon. Melon and berries are low carbohydrate fruits. Spinach is a super green vegetable that has a place in any smoothie recipe you can throw it into. Very few people eat enough green vegetables, so fit them into almost any fruit smoothie, and although the color may not always be the most appealing, the taste is amazing.
Yummy! This smoothie recipe tastes like fresh green vegetables out of the garden. Why cover up that awesome flavor with too much sweet fruit or juice? The parsley gives the smoothie a fresh, almost savory taste. One serving of this smoothie is only 120 calories. It is high in at least 10 important nutrients, including fiber and iron. The fact that the leaves are ground up may increase the absorption of the iron from the fibrous leaves of the spinach and kale. The high vitamin C content provides an acidic environment for iron to be absorbed in the body.
The green apple contributes tartness while the ginger provides a zing to the tongue! Carrots and ginger were made for each other, so you can’t lose with this smoothie. Carrots are full of vitamin A to support night vision. Apples are an excellent source of soluble fiber to reduce cholesterol and vitamin C to keep various body cells functioning. Ginger has been used for centuries to sooth an upset stomach, and has been shown in some studies to reduce the symptoms of motion sickness. At only 162 calories per serving, this smoothie satisfies sweet cravings as part of a weight loss plan.
