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.

Berry Pomegranate Sherbet Smoothie

Berry Pomegranate Sherbet Smoothie Recipe

100% pomegranate juice can sometimes be a little strong to drink on its own, but in this smoothie recipe it is combined with fruit and sherbet, and all you taste is the sweet goodness of antioxidant power. Pomegranates are known as super fruits because of the antioxidant content and studies have shown that they help blood flow and may help prevent and/or treat heart disease. When you add raspberries and blueberries (also high in antioxidants) to the mix, you have a cancer prevention cocktail. Enjoy this sweet smoothie recipe and allow yourself to reap the rewards of good health.

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.

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!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Recipe

Who needs high calorie bread to get the flavor and fiber of a scrumptious peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Try this smoothie recipe for a twist on an old stand-by. The peanut butter and grapes taste like peanut butter and grape jelly while the wheat germ adds a nutty, almost whole grain bread flavor. Vanilla yogurt gives you extra protein and calcium for a healthy alternative to a sandwich. This smoothie recipe provides about 40 less calories and 20% more calcium, 30% more vitamin C, and 5% more iron than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread.

Grandma's Green Smoothie

Grandma's Green Smoothie Recipe

This nutritious smoothie incorporates super greens along with fruit and coconut milk to provide a potent dose of antioxidants. Kale and spinach are super heroes of the vegetable world providing everything your cells need to function optimally. Coconut milk is high in medium-chain triglycerides, fats that provides energy for the body, and does not accumulate in the organs. Fat also provides a feeling of fullness, so this smoothie is really a meal in itself.

Paleo Diet Smoothie

Paleo Diet Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie recipe will be the paleo-dieter’s delight! 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. You will be amazed at how well the guava seeds grind up in the blender so that you do not miss out on the concentrated nutrition and fiber inside them. Rather than using milk or juice, which are not allowed on the paleo diet, water is added to thin out the recipe. Guava and tomatoes both contain lycopene, which has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
