My Morning Booster Smoothie

Last updated on September 21st, 2021 at 02:51 pm

My Morning Booster Smoothie: A couple of months ago, I posted on my Facebook page that I had purchased my First Nutri Bullet. Although I have been juicing more often than before, I rarely create my drink recipe. So today I’ve decided to share one of the very few recipes I’ve created, my Morning Booster Smoothy. I have made this one quite often, and I can say that I am proud of it.

My Morning Booster Smoothie is composed of:

1) Kale: At just 33 calories, one cup of raw kale has:

  • Nearly 3 grams of protein
  • 5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full)
  • VitaminsA, C, and K
  • Folate, a B vitamin that’s key for brain development
  • Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. (While kale has far less omega-3 than fish, it is another way to get some of this healthy fat into your diet.
  • Luteinand zeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts Minerals including phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and zinc

2) Banana: The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 content in bananas all support heart health.

3) Ginger: Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of “stomach problems,” including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, nausea caused by cancer treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite.

4) Watermelon: What’s less well known is this juicy fruit is among the best sources of lycopene—a nutrient found in red fruits and vegetables that are essential for vision, heart health, and cancer prevention.

5) Flaxseed: Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
  • Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant  Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.

6) Blueberries: These tiny little gems do indeed pack a potent punch. They rank the highest of any fruit for antioxidants (those free-radical-fighting powerhouses), and one cup delivers 14% of the recommended daily dose of fiber and nearly a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.

7) Strawberries: Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium. Just one serving — about eight strawberries — provides more vitamin C than an orange.

8) Water: Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids.
