Smoothies featuring apple

Fruity Oatmeal Smoothie

Fruity Oatmeal SmoothieMy first oatmeal smoothie has arrived and it’s a tasty one! It’s also quite nutritious and perfect for breakfast.

I’m a creature of habit and for a long time was content eating oatmeal with butter and occasionally a splash of cinnamon.  After my recent experiments blending oatmeal with fruit and other goodies that habit has changed.

A quick, and important word, about preparing oatmeal for maximum digestion and nutrient assimilation before we get to this delicious recipe.

The Ultimate Turmeric Smoothie

The Ultimate Turmeric SmoothieThis recipe might just be the healthiest on my site. The combination of ingredients have been tweaked over the years to maximize the health imparting benefits.

However, I can’t take credit for this formula. A kind gentleman by the name of Raul was gracious enough to gift it to me. Raul is a chemistry professor at the National University of Mexico who has investigated turmeric for over 10 year. It’s safe to assume he knows more about turmeric than most people.

Raul shared this recipe with me so that more people can benefit from it. We both enjoy sharing and spreading information people can use to improve their health.

Blueberry Applesauce SmoothieJust when I thought I’d exhausted all the possible smoothie ingredients along came one I somehow overlooked, applesauce :)

Sugarless Lemonade

Sugarless LemonadeThis is perhaps the easiest and most refreshing fresh juice recipe ever! Simply juice a couple of apples and a lemon and you’re left with a delicious treat.

Lemonade is most appreciated on a hot summer day. Add a few ice cubes to your fresh juice, or pour into your blender, add ice, and blend until you have a cool, slushy beverage.

Here are a few reasons why you’d want to drink this besides that fact it tastes great.

Apple Pie Smoothie

Apple Pie Smoothie

Why not drink your pie :)

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts. Although it often leaves me feeling guilty after eating because I know it’s not that healthy.

This smoothie solves that problem. Think of drinking a delicious slice (or two) of apple pie that’s loaded with good nutrition leaving you feeling good about yourself after consuming.

That’s the beauty of many smoothie recipes, you can transform an otherwise unhealthy food into something that’s highly nutritious and tastes just as good, if not better.

There’s obviously apple in this recipe, and we all know an apple a day keeps the doctor away; so I’m going to focus on the health benefits of each of the three spices this recipe calls for.
