Dating The Greens And The Nutty Seeds: The Peanut Butter Smoothie!

July 31st, 2017 by

My cute 12 year old son helped me name and post this smoothie.  He wisely advised me that giving my recipies book-like titles would make them far more interesting.

Don’t be fooled by the color of this smoothie, which happens to be a vibrant green. This really tastes like a creamy peanut butter smoothie. It just packs a bunch of extra nutrients without sacrificing taste.

The recipe is simple: unsweetened almond milk, peanut butter, hemp seeds, avocado, spinach (this where it gets its vibrant green), and of course, the DATE!

Peach Ginger Probiotic Smoothie

March 3rd, 2017 by

So many good ingredients in this smoothie!  It always helps me to know what good I am doing for my body with what I choose to eat.

Yogurt offers probiotic support, which is good for digestion and absorption of nutrients. Look for yogurt with no added sugar and one million or more live active cultures (assuming your immune system is not compromised). Yogurt’s strong protein content combined with live bacterial cultures also offers blood sugar benefits. Fermented dairy products like yogurt have been shown to decrease bone risk.

Ginger supports digestion, aids nausea, boosts immunity and is anti-inflammatory.

Spinach is super rich in vitamins and minerals. It offers anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and even omega-3s!

Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C and fiber.

With their high levels of potassium and sterols (which block the absorption of dietary cholesterol), bananas support cardiovascular health. Even though very sweet, the banana’s Glycemic Index is quite low. They have a wonderful mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates which support endurance activities.


Vanilla Yogurt

If you love vanilla yogurt and don’t want all the added sugars and other ingredients, this is a simple and great way to go! Use your favorite organic plain unsweetened yogurt, and just add stevia and pure vanilla extract.  Creamy yum!
