Banana and Buckwheat Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is energizing and gentle on your body first thing in the morning. Buckwheat groats add a nice thickness, and they are rich in amino acids and minerals. They are also full of fiber, which can help keep you satiated. The antioxidant-rich fruit acai can also be added to this smoothie (acai contains some healthy fats so it combines well with the other ingredients. More on this in Module 6). Look for unsweetened frozen smoothie packets at health food stores.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons buckwheat groats, soaked overnight in pure water
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • Stevia, as desired for sweetness

Method :

  • Rinse buckwheat groats very thoroughly.
  • Combine all ingredients in the blender and pulse to desired consistency.

Plum & Blueberry Smoothie

Plums just don’t get enough press so when I found this recipe from Rambling Tart (slightly modified), I thought it would be a nice addition to Smoothieweb.com. Not too sweet; blueberries aren’t high in sugar, and with a squeeze of lemon, this plum smoothie will give you a good boost especially with the protein punch from the Greek yogurt.

If you are skeptical of the power of the plum take this into account from MailOnline, plums are being counted as a new ‘super-food’ by scientists. They plum matched or exceeded blueberries in antioxidants and phytonutrients, which help prevent disease. So with plums and blueberries you are drinking one of the most nutritious and healthiest smoothies you can make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 red plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1 small container peach Greek yogurt
  • juice of 1 lemon

Method :

Add ingredients to blender and start slow with a gradual increase in speed. Let it whirl for 15-30 seconds on high to make it lighter with more air.
