Acai Berry Smoothie

Acai Berry Smoothie Recipe

Acai berries are stocked with super antioxidants to prevent cancer and keep your cells functioning properly. Acai berries have been shown to contain more antioxidant power than other super berries such as blueberries and cranberries. It may be difficult to find whole acai berries, so this smoothie recipe calls for acai berry juice, which is readily available at the grocery store. Chia seeds also have been touted to provide a slew of health benefits, but it comes down to the old nutritionist’s adage that eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds will provide all the nutrients you need. So do not limit yourself to one type of berry or seed, and enjoy this acai berry smoothie recipe.

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!

Banana Coconut Cream Smoothie

Banana Coconut Cream Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie recipe tastes great with our without rum. A mildly sweet creamy treat, the coconut milk provides medium chain triglycerides or MCT oil to protect your heart and provide sustained energy for working out or just living.

Think of this smoothie recipe as a treat and know that your body is able to burn most of the fat for energy rather than storing it in adipose tissue below the skin. Fuel your workouts of mind, body and/or soul with the banana coconut cream smoothie!

Orange Mango Smoothie

Orange Mango Smoothie Recipe

The mango is called a stone fruit due to its hard, stone-like center. If you decide to use fresh mango for this smoothie recipe, make sure to peel it and cut the soft flesh away from the stony center and add a few ice cubes to make it cold. This is probably one of the most simple smoothie recipes to prepare and also one of the most refreshing! Orange fruits contain carotenoids, precursors to vitamin A, which provides retinal to help you see, and retinol to aid in reproductive system health in both men and women. So make sure to eat orange fruits at least once per week.

Milk thistle has long been known to the herbal community as a liver cleanser, and it may also help keep blood sugar balanced. Our hangover cure smoothie recipe will fix you right up after a crazy night!

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.

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.

A beautiful green treat with the mild sweetness of guava, less than one serving of net carbohydrates, and 100 wee calories, the paleo smoothie will become your favorite snack.

Guava and tomatoes both contain lycopene, which has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

Basic Protein Smoothie

Basic Protein Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie can be made with any type of protein powder. Some choices are pea protein, whey protein, soy protein, or powdered egg white. Any flavor works, but vanilla or plain is recommended. Also, any type of milk beverage may be used, such as cow’s milk, soy milk, rice beverage, almond milk, etc. You can also feel free to get creative with the additives. We used wheat grass and flax oil to add important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. But chia seeds, spirulina, or nutritional yeast are also good nutrition hoices to add in.

Green Machine Smoothie

Green Machine Smoothie Recipe

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.

Berry Berry Protein Smoothie

Berry Berry Protein Smoothie Recipe

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. This prevents a reactive drop in blood sugar later that triggers cravings for more sweets. Egg protein is the most perfect protein available, and now comes in various flavors just like whey protein. 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.
