Super Food Smoothies Helped To Rebuild My Energy 3 comments

Fruit Smoothie

After being so sick last week one of the things I had to do was to reintroduce simple bland foods back to my stomach, but I did not mind as that’s all I wanted to try.

The next step after several days was to gain my strength back and to do that I decided to add green drinks to my diet by using my blender to make them. I found a great recipe that contained spinach, blueberries, bananas, greek yogurt, ginger and POM, short for pomegranate juice and also green tea. All ingredients are considered super foods and after the first one I could feel the difference in my energy. There are so many versions of green drinks, smoothies and all can be made with a blender. There a healthy way to help lose weight as a meal replacement or snack, great way to to get the veggies in the kids, they love the smoothies.

Fruit Smoothie

1 cup baby spinach loosely packed (organic)
1 sm frozen banana, slice before freezing
1 cup frozen berries, unsweetened
Fresh ginger root (1/2″ slice)
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, plain, 0% fat
1 cup chilled green tea (unsweetened)…home brewed is best.
1/2 cup pure pomegranate juice
1 cup crushed ice

Directions:

Toss all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. The blender will be filled to the top with loads of super foods, so be sure the lid is on securely before blending. It will take a minute or so for all the ingredients to blend completely.

For a thinner smoothie, add more green tea. Enjoy and reap the benefits!!! Read more at Skinny MS

    Healthy and nutritious food is necessary for our body. Juicing extracts the juice from fresh fruits or vegetables. The resulting liquid contains most of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) found in the whole fruit. However, whole fruits and vegetables also have healthy fiber, which is lost during most juicing.

      Hi Sanjeet, thanks for your comment and insight. I know there is a lot of healthy fiber is lost during juicing, but sometimes making smoothies is the only way to get down some important nutrients in someone that does not like to eat fruits and vegetables fresh, sometimes because of bad teeth or just dont care to take the time. Like my husband and I when Im in a hurry and have to get out the door for me, better than grabing something unhealthy.
