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.

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!

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.

Holiday Pumpkin Smoothie

Holiday Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

Pumpkin is naturally high in carotenoids, substances that fight and/or prevent cancer and keep your vision sharp. Some studies show that canned pumpkin may be healthier than fresh pumpkin because the nutrients are concentrated and in a form that is easier to absorb by the human body. So, fresh or canned, enjoy a holiday pumpkin smoothie today! Pumpkin is also extremely high in potassium, which is important for blood pressure control. Sprinkle on some cinnamon to promote balanced blood glucose. Who says holiday foods have to be full of sugar and fat? Enjoy this low carb, low calorie treat, and forget about holiday weight gain.

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!
