Picture1Super High Protein Smoothie Recipe

Not many are aware of the tremendous health benefits an Avocado brings to the table, and it is often overlooked in our western society as a boring tasting fruit.  Believe it or not, Avocado is a rich source of essential proteins, packed with good fats and a perfect source of Omega -3 and Omega -6.  No wonder Latin Americans love it so much with their favorite dishes!

Avocado taste is fairly mild, and can be combined with anything. Whether you choose to stuff it, or make Guacamole, it is a wonderful fruit to eat often.  If you are not a fan, we have prepared a super high protein smoothie recipe that will allow you to mask the flavor, but enjoy the rewards.

Here’s one you will love to try, and want to share with your friends and family too.

Fighting a Cold or Flu with a Citrus and Ginger Smoothie

This amazing recipe I created one winter when I was suffering from a severe cold. I was house bound because of snow outside.  I ransacked my cupboards and found no medicines, but I did have a bowl full of wonderful fruit.  The ginger adds the zest to the mix, but if you have a real issue with blocked sinuses, then add the cayenne pepper, as this will clear your nasal passages quickly.

Cayenne pepper is also great for your metabolism.  So all in all, this recipe is packed full of vitamin C to combat the cold, ginger to help your throat, and pepper to clear your nose!

Preparation Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 1 serving
 Ingredients  

  • 2 medium seedless navel oranges, peeled
  • 2 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger, or to taste
  • 1-3 tsp. pure maple syrup, to taste
  • 3-5 ice cubes
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
 Method  

–       In a high speed blender, combine all of the      ingredients and blend until smooth.

–       Drink and get ready to feel better in a flash.

    How strong is the coconut flavor in the first smoothie? I really dislike the flavor of coconut.
