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.

Orange Mango Smoothie

This is probably one of the most simple smoothie recipes to prepare and also one of the most refreshing! Orange fruits contain carotenoids, precursors to vitamin A, which provides retinal to help you see, and retinol to aid in reproductive system health in both men and women.

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.

Lemon Lime Sherbet Smoothie

Lemon Lime Sherbet Smoothie Recipe

Alkalize your body with the power of citrus! Lemons and limes, though acidic prior to digestion, actually have an alkaline effect after passing through the gastrointestinal system in our bodies. Sherbet is a good way to get some of the benefits of cow’s milk, like calcium and potassium, while feeling as if you are eating a decadent ice cream treat. This smoothie recipe is tart yet sweet and refreshing for those hot summer days. Peeling the lemons and limes first is generally recommended, but it is okay to include some of the peel in your smoothie recipe. The peel contains tannins that are bitter tasting but provide antioxidants.

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.

Kids' Pink Swirl Smoothie

Kids Pink Swirl Smoothie Recipe

Kids love this simple smoothie recipe created by an eight-year-old. Kids need at least 800 mg of calcium daily, which equates to about three 8 oz servings of milk or yogurt.

Vanilla Soy Smoothie

Vanilla Soy Smoothie Recipe

Silken tofu makes a great base for smoothie recipes due to its ability to soften and absorb the flavor of fruits and other ingredients. This is a simple smoothie recipe that makes a great dessert while providing the amazing benefits of soy protein. Soy is one of the few plant sources of “complete protein,” meaning that it contains all the essential amino acids needed to repair and build muscle and tissues. Soy has also been shown to be helpful in preventing heart disease, especially when used to replace meat in the diet. It is easy to add soy to smoothies by using soft tofu, which adds very little flavor, a little texture, and a lot of healthy protein.
