good smoothie recipes

On this lovely Friday I want to share with you my morning rituals.

I love to make smoothies in the morning. That’s why I want to share with you some good smoothie recipes. I often make a mix of veggies and fruit. It depends what I have in my fridge and what season it is. Currently in Israel it’s the season of pomegranates. I love to drink this pure juice.

However many websites seem to have different opinions about this. So I don’t know if it is a myth to eat fruits on empty stomach or there is some truth in it.

According to Janneke van der Ven, a certified health coach, our body absorbs vitamins faster once eaten on empty stomach. If fruits are eaten in a meal with whole wheat or/and fat, the absorption of vitamins from fruits goes slower.

I like to eat fruits separately in the morning. I sometimes combine it with veggies in a smoothie but I never combine fruits with other meals, only with some types of veggies or/and seeds.

The reason why I start my day with a mix of fresh fruits and veggies is to be sure that I get my daily intake of vitamins and minerals. It’s just another morning ritual.

One of my good smoothie recipes is:

  • 1 Carrot
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 Apple
  • A handful of cranberries

Another one of the good smoothie recipes:

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Piece of avocado
  • 1 Pear
  • A handful of cranberries
  • Flaxseed (which contain a lot of healthy components like Omega 3)
  • A handful of fresh baby leaves (young green leaves)

    Grappig dat al die verschillende fruit en groente, in verschillende kleuren, uiteindelijk een groene smoothie opleveren. Het ziet er supergezond uit.
