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.

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. Melons are full of juice with the right balance of electrolytes and nutrients to hydrate your cells perfectly. Watermelon is also one of the few fruits containing lycopene, a super antioxidant. 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.

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.

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.

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.
