Presenting a Nutritionally Dense Smoothie Recipe

by Sheryl Walters

(NaturalNews) Most people enjoy drinking smoothies, as they are one of the easiest ways to pack your diet with health enhancing nutrients, in a delicious way. You can put anything in to improve your health and wellbeing.

There are many smoothie products on the market that claim to be 100% fruity goodness. However, be aware that most of these have been pasteurized, meaning they have been heated. Heating fruit and superfoods generally means a loss in the vital nutrients that they provide. Luckily, making your own smoothie is simple and not time consuming.

Starting the day with a smoothie is way to get some nutrition in first thing. It takes very little time and will keep you going through lunch. You can power pack them with super foods that you might find difficult to consume on their own.

When it comes to smoothies, there are no absolute rules to follow. The combinations are endless and you can put whatever you like and need in them.

Here is a healthy smoothie idea that is full of nutrients that will increase your wellbeing, and it is delicious.

* 2 tablespoons each of linseeds and hempseeds that have been soaked overnight. This releases their goodness and makes them easier to absorb. (These are packed with essential fats that are essential for our physical and mental health.)

* Frozen Acai berries (high in antioxidants and other powerful nutrients... all of the experts have been raving about this as one of the best super foods).

* 25 Fresh Blueberries (the age defying fruit)

* 4 Frozen strawberries (loaded with zinc and other nutrients to make sure you feel great)

* 1 banana (packed with potassium and one of the best ingredients to thicken and bulk out your healthy smoothie recipes)

* 1 small packet of Stevia (the sweetener that is good for you and is highly alkalizing. It is essential that you sweeten your smoothie naturally with fruit or sweeteners that won't harm your health.)

* A pinch of bee pollen (one of the best longevity foods, it will also keep you from getting colds and flu)

* Enough water to make it a nice consistency (essential to our lives)

There are many other smoothies that you can make, the key is to make sure that every ingredient is going to offer you something beneficial, and that it tastes delicious.
