Hangover Cure Smoothie

Hangover Cure Smoothie Recipe

Asparagus contains a specific mix of amino acids that have been shown to alleviate symptoms of a hangover by helping the liver process alcohol. Kale is high in potassium, which helps the body’s electrolytes get back into balance. Carrots provide beta carotene and antioxidants to help liver cells function optimally. You could try using beets in place of carrots in this smoothie recipe for the same effect. Garlic has a liver cleansing effect. Milk thistle has long been known to the herbal community as a liver cleanser, and it may also help keep blood sugar balanced.

Pineapple Lime Smoothie

Pineapple Lime Smoothie Recipe

An interesting twist on a virgin pina colada, this smoothie will take you to the tropics! The mint leaves make it even more refreshing. If it is too tart, try it with less lime juice.

Holiday Creme De Menthe Smoothie

Holiday Creme De Menthe Smoothie

If you like mint during the holidays, or any time, you will love this smoothie! We added only half an ounce of crème de menthe due to the strong mint flavor that tends to overpower the fruit flavors. You could experiment with other types of alcohol along with the crème de menthe, such as amaretto, Irish cream, or crème de cacao. When using the sweet liqueurs, it would be best to use fruits with rich flavors such as oranges or bananas. We were going for a distinctive mint flavor with this smoothie recipe, which was achieved by using mild flavored fruits and vegetables (cucumber and pear).

Gluten Free Smoothie

Gluten Free Smoothie Recipe

This topic is still controversial, but evidence shows that in addition to the autoimmune disorder celiac disease, there is a milder form of gluten intolerance called non-celiac gluten sensitivity. If you suspect that gluten is causing symptoms such as GI distress, fatigue, joint pain, or headaches, see a professional to rule out a gluten sensitivity. If you know you are sensitive it is extremely important to completely avoid gluten in your diet for the rest of your life. Wheat flour is the main culprit, but processed foods contain many wheat additives. Fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies are free to be enjoyed in a gluten free diet, so bon appétit!

Lemon Lime Sherbet Smoothie

Lemon Lime Sherbet Smoothie Recipe

Alkalize your body with the power of citrus! Lemons and limes, though acidic prior to digestion, actually have an alkaline effect after passing through the gastrointestinal system in our bodies. Sherbet is a good way to get some of the benefits of cow’s milk, like calcium and potassium, while feeling as if you are eating a decadent ice cream treat. This smoothie recipe is tart yet sweet and refreshing for those hot summer days. Peeling the lemons and limes first is generally recommended, but it is okay to include some of the peel in your smoothie recipe. The peel contains tannins that are bitter tasting but provide antioxidants.

It is always a good idea to combine a sweet treat with a protein source to satisfy your cravings and keep your blood sugar from spiking.

So break out of the blood sugar roller coaster cycle with a sweet yet high protein smoothie recipe. Whey or soy protein powders may be substituted for egg protein powder if desired. Also, try it with vanilla soy milk or rice milk.

Red Hot Cinnamon Eggnog Smoothie

Red Hot Cinnamon Eggnog Smoothie Recipe

Just wait until you experience the smooth delicious flavor of this holiday-inspired smoothie! You will make it a tradition every year from now on! We used prepared eggnog that we purchased at the supermarket, but homemade would be even better. Be careful with raw egg yolks, since they may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. Try to use either pasteurized liquid, whole eggs, or a recipe where the eggs are cooked to kill the bacteria. If you purchase eggnog, make sure it has been pasteurized. After all of these safety precautions are taken, enjoy your scrumptious holiday concoction with your loved ones.

Guava Fruit Smoothie

Guava Fruit Smoothie Recipe

A mildly sweet treat, this smoothie recipe will satisfy your hunger due to its high fiber content while supplying only 150 calories. Make sure to use a high quality blender that will easily pulverize the guava seeds. Guava seeds are an excellent source of insoluble fiber while apples are an excellent source of soluble fiber. Both types of fiber keep your digestive tract healthy by increasing bulk, but soluble fiber has the added benefit of surrounding cholesterol molecules and removing them from the body. This recipe provides almost half of the Institute of Medicine’s recommended fiber for the day.
