Mango Smoothie

Mango Smoothie Recipe

Our mango smoothie recipe should taste like frozen mango with a smooth hint of bananas. We don't recommend adding any mango juice to this because of all the added sugar, instead keep adding more mango slices if you prefer the smoothie to be sweeter. Our mango smoothie recipe is a great way to add beta carotene to your diet if you don't like carrots.

Pear Mint Smoothie

Pear Mint Smoothie Recipe

This refreshing smoothie recipe will satisfy your summer thirst. Drink it or eat it with a spoon like a cool minty frozen sorbet. Pears are an excellent source of fiber, especially the skin. The skin also contains flavonols and flavon-3-ols, antioxidants that may help prevent diabetes. If you use red-skinned pears, you are also getting a good dose of anthocyanins, a blue pigment that also may help keep blood sugar balanced. For smoothie recipes, it usually works best to remove the core, but there is also nutrition in the seeds and, with a high power blender, you can throw in the entire fruit.

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.

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.

Vegan Protein Smoothie

Vegan Protein Smoothie Recipe

A vegan diet is a healthy way to eat and live, especially if careful attention is paid to getting “complete proteins” from foods. The human body will only use protein from food to build muscle if it contains all of the essential amino acids. Animal foods contain all of them in a similar proportion to that of our muscles so it is simple for the body to take them and build body tissue. Plant foods contain different ratios of amino acids, but it is easy to get them all if your diet contains a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Soy beans are one of few plant foods that contain all the essential amino acids, so enjoy this delicious high protein smoothie recipe.
