Beet Smoothie Recipe

Beet Smoothie Recipe

Yum! This smoothie tastes as good as it looks. There is no need to cook the beets prior to blending, but it is a good idea to scrub them with a vegetable brush under cool running water and to cut the ends off. Any time that vegetables are bright in color, it means that they are full of antioxidant power. The red pigment in beets comes from betalains, an antioxidant that protects your body from harmful free radicals. The longer beets are cooked, the more betalains are damaged and lost, so enjoy this smoothie recipe and get the full benefit of beets.

Anti-inflammatory Smoothie

Anti-inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

All of the ingredients in this smoothie recipe have been said to have anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Inflammation is a process that is basically an exaggeration of the immune response in the body. When the body thinks there is an intruder, it fights back by mounting an army of special warrior cells called neutrophils and macrophages. These white blood cells build up at the battle site causing swelling and sometimes pain. This is the body’s natural defense system, but sometimes the culprits are harmless and the inflammation itself begins to cause problems in the body leading to chronic disease. So, to help prevent this unnecessary war, try this delicious smoothie recipe.

Help Me Sleep Smoothie

Help Me Sleep Smoothie Recipe

This calming, tasty smoothie recipe contains bananas, which are a good source of B-6, a precursor to melatonin production in the body. Melatonin is a hormone that regulates circadian rhythms (our sleep-wake cycles). Kale and milk are both good sources of calcium. A calcium deficiency may contribute to insomnia. Tart cherry juice was shown in a study to aid in sleep because it also contains melatonin. This smoothie recipe combines all of these natural sleep-inducing ingredients while providing a slightly tart but sweet bedtime treat. Try it with sweet cherry juice in place of the tart juice for a mellower flavor.

Strawberry Margarita Smoothie

Strawberry Margarita Smoothie Recipe

We use all natural ingredients in our margarita smoothie recipes, including our homemade simple syrup, which will take you to a tropical paradise! Tequila that is made from 100% agave is known for being smooth tasting and reportedly does not cause a hangover when imbibed in moderation. Tequila that has other alcohol sources added gives the effect of “mixing” your liquors and has a reputation for causing the classic hangover symptoms of headache, nausea, and general fatigue. Although there are not many health benefits left after the nutritious agave nectar is fermented, using whole fruits in this smoothie will provide a substantial dose of antioxidants to get you through the morning after.
