Papaya Margarita Smoothie

Papaya Margarita Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie recipe may be changed in several delicious ways depending on your preference when it comes to a margarita. Using frozen papaya allows you to have the nutritional benefits of the fruit while providing ice at the same time. You can also try fresh papaya and add ice cubes to get to the consistency that you desire. Also, try agave nectar in place of the simple syrup for a taste combination to die for. This way you will be gaining the health benefits of agave and experiencing the magic of fermented agave (aka tequila) at the same time!

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.

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.

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!

Macadamia Cocoa Smoothie

Macadamia Cocoa Smoothie Recipe

This is a truly rich dessert smoothie recipe so save it for a treat or party. The extra calories come from the macadamia nuts, ice cream, and cocoa powder. The flavor is very mild and can be enhanced by adding coconut essence. To reduce the calories in the recipe try using fat free or low fat frozen yogurt in place of the ice cream. Also, almonds may be used in place of macadamia nuts for a more pronounced nut flavor. Nuts contain protein and healthy fats, and studies have shown that people who include nuts in their diet usually weigh less than those who do not.
