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.

Vegan Protein Smoothie

Vegan Protein Smoothie Recipe

A vegan diet is a healthy way to eat and live, especially if careful attention is paid to getting “complete proteins” from foods. The human body will only use protein from food to build muscle if it contains all of the essential amino acids. Animal foods contain all of them in a similar proportion to that of our muscles so it is simple for the body to take them and build body tissue. Plant foods contain different ratios of amino acids, but it is easy to get them all if your diet contains a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Soy beans are one of few plant foods that contain all the essential amino acids, so enjoy this delicious high protein smoothie recipe.

V-10 Smoothie

V-10 Smoothie Recipe

You have heard of the V-8, now try the V-10 for even more of a nutritional power shot! When combined, all of these vegetables provide most of the needed macronutrients (carbohydrates and protein) and virtually all of the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) needed for the day. The only nutrient lacking here is fat, which probably is not lacking in the remainder of your diet for the day. However, to add this final nutrient to the mix to make a complete meal, 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil could be added as a source of healthy fats that would aid in satiety and promote a healthy immune system.

Lemon Lime Melon Smoothie

Lemon Lime Melon Smoothie Recipe

Make your own healthy lemon-lime soda smoothie! Lemon and lime juice are acidic when they go in but actually have an alkalizing effect on the body’s pH after digestion.

This smoothie is refreshing in the summer or just after a strenuous workout and is high in vitamins A and C. At only 77 calories per serving, this smoothie recipe is the ideal replacement for lemon-lime soda, which, in a 12 oz serving, provides no nutritional value but contains 100 calories.

Dracula Blood Orange Smoothie

Dracula Blood Orange Smoothie Recipe

Yummy!! This creepy smoothie bubbles right out of the glass while making the kiddies smile. Blood oranges are native to Italy and are not always easy to find in other countries. If you are searching for some and do not see them in the produce section, check the juice aisle. It is worth the hunt to make a Halloween celebration extra spooky. Blood oranges contain one of the super antioxidant compounds, namely anthocyanins, normally found only in berries and a few vegetables. The dark red, blood-colored pigment forms when oranges are grown in a cooler temperature. The magic of nature provides what our bodies need in almost any climate.

At only 219 calories, this smoothie recipe provides a whopping 14 grams of protein per serving. An ingenious way to trick yourself into thinking you have splurged.

Blueberry Grape Slush Smoothie

Blueberry Grape Slush Smoothie Recipe

Try this smoothie recipe when you are craving something really sweet. It will remind you of a slush from a fast food restaurant or gas station. It also tastes great with blackberries for even more anthocyanin antioxidant action. Anthocyanins are the blue pigment in blueberries, purple grapes, and blackberries. These pigments, which are flavonoids (a type of antioxidant compound) have been shown in studies to protect against cancer, aging, neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections. The more ice, the more slushy it becomes. The slushies from the gas station are not much more than sugar and water. Instead, drink in health with our blueberry grape slush smoothie recipe.

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. Children like to help in the kitchen, and smoothies are an easy and healthy food to prepare. Recruit your kids to mix up this treat, and stock up their bones with calcium. Bananas provide potassium and vitamin C, while berries are excellent sources of antioxidants. Kids today eat too much refined sugar and fat in processed foods. Smoothies are an easy way to include more fresh fruits and vegetables in your kids’ diets.
