Coconuts have long been a tradition in Tess Masters's family. "My father grew up in the north of Australia with coconut trees in his backyard, and we lived in Asia for many years, so coconut has been a staple in my house ever since I was born," Tess recalls, whose recently released book The Blender Girl Smoothies includes several recipes that use the versatile fruit's juice and meat. By trying endless combinations for smoothies, Tess has found that just one ingredient—a coconut's juice, or coconut water—can thoroughly upgrade your smoothies.

Full of live enzymes, nutrients, natural electrolytes, and other good stuff, coconut water is mild enough to hang out with fruits and nut milks, and its slight sweetness makes drinking your greens a lot more doable. Alkaline Lime "This tangy, refreshing blend is my go-to breakfast," Tess says. Green Grappler. How to Make a Green Smoothie with Avocado. Every other Thursday, Gena Hamshaw of the blog Choosing Raw shares satisfying, flavorful recipes that also happen to be vegan. Today: Take the dairy out of your smoothie, and add in some green. Smoothies are a no-brainer breakfast for vegans: many recipes are vegan as written, and if they aren’t, it’s easy to veganize them using plant-based milks and yogurts in place of regular dairy.

More: Make homemade almond milk that tastes infinitely better than any carton from the store. Most of us are familiar with some basic smoothie combinations: strawberry-banana, mixed berry, pineapple-mango, and so on. But the wide world of smoothies extends far beyond these tried-and-true flavor combinations. My perfect green smoothie formula goes something like this: 1 cup fruit (bananas, berries, etc.)1 cup leafy greensLiquid base (almond milk, coconut water, juice)Something for creaminess: almond butter, cashews, avocado, etc.

Almond Banana Dragon Fruit Bowl. Move over acai bowls, there’s a new superfruit in town that makes bright and beautiful smoothie bowls with a lovely pink hue. The fruit I’m referring to is dragon fruit and despite it’s name it has quite a mild and sweet flavor. I don’t know what it is about acai, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the frozen acai smoothie packets. The first time I purchased them, I accidentally bought the sweetened variety and while they tasted okay I wasn’t keen on adding 16 grams of evaporated cane juice to my morning smoothie. I did give the unsweetened variety a chance, but besides the nutritional benefits and fun toppings I still couldn’t quite figure out what all the hype was about — the flavor just wasn’t my favorite, especially not for the cost as those packets are pricey!

So naturally when I found out about Pitaya Plus frozen dragon fruit puree smoothie packets I was a little skeptical and wasn’t sure I’d be a big fan. The second is the combo that I’m sharing today.

Som krydder i det daglige kosthold hevder forskere og naturleger at gurkemeie kan dempe betennelsestilstander i kroppen og brukes gjerne ved mage- og tarmproblemer. Blant de mange vitenskapelig dokumenterte virkeområdene for gurkemeie kan nevnes krefthemmende, leverbeskyttende, galledrivende og antivirale. I tillegg har den en antioksidativ effekt, som trolig er grunnen til at studier har vist at gurkemeie senker kolesterolnivået.

Litt historie Gurkemeie stammer fra Sør-India og Indonesia, og har i lang tid blitt brukt som smakstilsetning, fargestoff i tekstiler og selvsagt medisin. Studier har vist at høydoseringer (1500 mg daglig) er like effektivt som kortison og ikke-steroide betennelseshemmende medisiner. Gurkemeie har vist seg å hjelpe med: Hjerte- og karsykdom: Curcumin reduserer nivået av skadelig kolesterol i blodet og hindrer blodplatene i å klistre seg sammen.

Håper det smaker! Cucumber-Blueberry Smoothie Recipe. Today is...Fava Beans!: Cacao (Theobroma cacao) Cacao or cocoa? Ask the chocolate cognescenti, and they will tell you cacao (the tree species name), and that cocoa is likely an anglicized pronunciation. Still, cocoa has stuck, and you will likely never be corrected if you refer to the whole beans as cacao and the products made from the beans as cocoa. While we have long delighted in eating chocolate (and have recently discovered its many health benefits), raw cacao beans as a snack food has only recently appeared on grocery shelves. Which is ironic, considering Central and South American cultures consumed cacao beans for centuries. The flavor of raw cacao might take some getting used to, especially if you are a milk chocolate lover. Eating raw cacao doesn't deliver the same heavenly pleasure as eating chocolate.

So how does one use raw cacao? Try this cacao smoothie recipe for a mega-antioxidant way to start your day: Cacao Smoothie Place cacao beans in a coffee grinder and grind into a fine powder. Scratch Mommy – Life, From Scratch 5 Tips For Kidney Health (& A Dandelion Smoothie Recipe)! When my son was in the NICU, just a mere 24 hours after he was born, I heard the doctors tell me he had “acute hydronephrosis and kidney failure.” I had no idea what hydronephrosis meant, but I could assume kidney failure was tragic. How could my little man already be diagnosed with this? He wasn’t even 24 hours old and the doctors were giving me that look of “I’m sorry, there might not be much we can do.” Over the next nine months and two surgeries, his kidneys stabilized to an acceptable level of function. Not perfect function, but one on which he could live and possibly never need a kidney transplant.

Multiple doctors informed me that once someone suffers kidney damage, there is nothing that can be done to repair the kidneys. The liver can regenerate, but not the kidneys. What my son suffered from is genetic. So why should we start the discussion now? Because kidneys filter our blood. When the doctors spoke to me about keeping my son’s kidneys healthy, they had one rule… Blueberry Kale Smoothie - Fettle Vegan. Smoothies - GreenMedTV — GreenMedTV. Sweet Citrus Avocado Dreamboat.
