Yay! It’s November! Boo, winter is here. But, as long as it’s not another polar vortex and I can get out to snowshoe more than once, I’ll survive!
November also means it’s time for the second installment of the seasonal superfood smoothie challenge from Puritan’s Pride!
Here are a couple of great recipes to try! They were developed by Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., of B Nutritious and author of The Sugar Detox, who works as a spokesperson for Puritan’s Pride.
Focus ingredient: Capsicum
Capsicum (cayenne pepper) is an herb that contains antioxidant vitamins A, E and C, B6 and K, making it a very healthful spice. Cayenne pepper my help to aid in digestion, which many people may need after that big holiday meal.
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cups of water
½ lemon, juiced
Blend all ingredients together and enjoy immediately!
Focus ingredient: Mint
Mint is an herb that needs more credit. It may help to soothe your digestive system after a few too many bites or sips. Mint also has antioxidants and key nutrients like trace amounts of vitamin A and vitamin C. All the more reason to love this refreshing herb.
1 tbsp fresh mint
½ cup pineapple (fresh or frozen)
1 cup coconut milk
Blend all ingredients together and enjoy immediately.
And here is one of my FAVORITE smoothie recipes for you to try!
1 cup Almond milk
1 serving chocolate protein powder
1 TBS natural peanut butter
Optional 1 cup ice
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!
