Asparagus Seaweed Smoothie

Asparagus Seaweed Smoothie Recipe

Whether or not you are a sushi lover, you will love this green smoothie recipe containing seaweed. Seaweed is a source of iodine, an essential nutrient that many people may not be getting enough of, especially if you don't drink cow’s milk and generally avoid salt. Iodized salt is a good source of iodine, and sea salt may contain it as well, but not in a significant amount. Seaweed contains varying amounts of iodine, but generally contains more than any other commonly consumed foods. Asparagus has a slew of health benefits. For a spicy twist on this smoothie recipe, use pickled asparagus out of the jar in place of fresh, but rinse it first to reduce the amount of sodium.

Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie

Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Make sure to use ripe fruit for this smoothie since kiwis and strawberries are both tart before ripening due in part to their high vitamin C content. The frozen yogurt sweetens and dulls the tartness providing an exotic-tasting snack or dessert. Kiwifruit is native to China, and is now cultivated in many other countries such as India and Italy. Once a delicacy and rare, it is now a common fruit in many Western households. The easiest way to remove the skin is to slice the kiwi in half and then run a spoon around the edges rather than trying to peel it.

Cranberry Smoothie

Cranberry Smoothie Recipe

What says festive like a cranberry smoothie? We used fresh cranberries in this recipe, but you could also try it with the canned variety. Fresh cranberries are lower in calories and have more of the antioxidant power retained, but they may not be easily found all year round. The wheat germ adds a strong satisfying wheat flavor. If this is not your thing, optionally you can leave out the wheat germ. You can also try it with another additive such as chia seeds or flax oil, which will not add a lot of extra flavor. The stevia sweetens up the tart berries for a tasty holiday treat that will impress!

Afternoon Tea Smoothie

Afternoon Tea Smoothie Recipe

Lemon curd is a sweet, lemony condiment made from sugar, eggs, butter and lemon juice that can be very high in calories and fat. However, if you use the recommended serving size of one tablespoon (as we did in this smoothie recipe), it will not put you over your calorie or fat limit, and it will add a little bit of a creamy satisfying texture. The raspberries provide natural sugars and antioxidants, and the green tea will pep you up in the afternoon due to its naturally occurring caffeine. Oh, and did we mention the myriad of studies proving that green tea prolongs life by preventing disease? Enjoy!
