Are green smoothie recipes healthy?

What we eat can truly transform our bodies and our lives in powerful ways. Especially with this smoothie recipe as I’ve seen in the lives of so many of my friends, family and community online. Blending spinach into a fruit smoothie is a great way to boost your immune system, as well as naturally energize you.

Most smoothies are made with just fruit and liquid, which is high in sugar and can cause inflammation. A green smoothie, on the other hand, is made with fruit, plant-based liquid and leafy greens.

This recipe is full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore— and tastes like a tropical treat from all the island fruit. Yet the best part is how simple as well as quick it is to make! You only need 4 ingredients and all of them can be found at your local grocery store (they don’t cost a fortune either!). As I say all the time— I’m all for making healthy eating affordable so it’s sustainable.

A green smoothie can taste just as good as a regular smoothie, and also have incredible health benefits.


Coconut Latte Smoothie

Prior to now, I have not been a smoothie drinker. I know smoothies are all the rage, but I really prefer to eat my food. Why make a strawberry smoothie when I can just eat strawberries? I like kale. I don’t have to hide it in a fruit-laced drink. I’ll just eat it with a fork.

All was going just fine in my non-smoothie world until my friend Faith from An Edible Mosaic wrote a book of smoothie recipes and asked me to try a few. I’ll do pretty much anything for my friends, so I agreed. Skimming through the book, all the recipes sounded pretty delicious chocolate cake batter, peaches and cream, raspberry-lime green tea, until…………

She must have made this one just for me right? I’ve never been the same since Starbucks discontinued their coconut latte, and seeing this recipe was like the sun shining down after a thunderstorm. The best part about this smoothie is that it has oatmeal and cashews in it too, so it’s like a meal in a glass. Plus, I made it in my magic bullet so I could just blend and go.

These days, as you know, I’ve been all about the quick, portable recipes and this smoothie definitely hit the spot during my weeks of craziness.


Additional Tips on Lowering High Blood Pressure

Incorporate movement into your daily activities. You don’t have to start pumping muscle, but make sure you do at least 30 minutes of movement every day. This movement could come in the form of a brisk walk, a yoga session, dancing around your house while you cook or clean or something as simple as always taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Be aware of the movement your body needs and incorporate this into your day-to-day life.

High blood pressure may be controlled if you make better lifestyle decisions and drinking a smoothie for high blood pressure daily can help you do that.

Beyond the slew of avocado toasts that bait us on Instagram, the colorfully arranged #smoothies on the app are even more of a studied art.

Her company Daily Harvest's motto is "the best smoothie you've never had," and fittingly, they contain a range of organic ingredients that you won't find in your average bodega smoothie. Think pineapple and matcha or mango and camu. Truly #FreezerGoals, in the brand's own words.

How To Make Our Watermelon Smoothie (30 Sec):

A few things to know before you get going.

First, just every time you buy a watermelon for this purpose, cut it up in chunks and store the chunks in bags in the freezer. 2 cup portions works nicely – that’s enough for one large smoothie or two small ones. That way you don’t have to go trying to break apart a huge block of frozen watermelon when the watermelon smoothie craving hits.

Second, toss in whatever add-ins feel necessary. If you’ve got basil, throw a few basil leaves in. If a spritzer is more your style, add some La Croix which is more than likely already in your fridge because life loves La Croix, right? If you’re looking for more of a party drink, put your mixology hat on (I’m imagining rum? or maybe tequila in a watermelon margarita sort of capacity?) and GO. Also invite me over please k thanks see you soon.

Thirdly, if you want the slushie-like consistency to stay smooth and uniform, serve it right away. Especially if it the glasses are going outside for any length of time. The longer you wait, the more you will notice the icy slushie parts rising to the top of the glass and the juicy, uhh, juice sinking to the bottom. Which, to be honest, leaves you with a serious juice treat when you stick your straw in and start drinking (pure bliss, really), but maybe you’re looking for more of a non-juicy smoothie experience, in which case serve immediately.


Elderberry Syrup in an Immune Boosting Smoothie

I’m sure you’ve noticed my favorite ingredient in this immune boosting smoothie is elderberry syrup. Along with the delicious berry flavor, elderberry syrup is packed with natural health benefits.

It’s important to note that black elderberry syrup is a dietary supplement. It isn’t intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Yet elderberry syrup is a natural remedy that my family has experienced the benefits of and I’m excited to share it with you today.

You can make your own DIY Elderberry Syrup Recipe, yet it takes more time and money. It’s just so convenient to keep Sambucol Elderberry Syrup on hand. Whatever way you go, you can use either syrup interchangeably in this immune boosting smoothie recipe.
