This radish smoothie is another best-smoothies.com creation. A green smoothie recipe for 2 persons that is healthy, tasty and good looking as well!

Last month I had a mandatory course for my job. I was pretty nervous for the exam and thought of a smoothie to increase readiness. This radish smoothie did the trick and I passed my exam :)

Radish and carrots are very good for your eyes! Also they increase your brain activity.
Furthermore the strawberries will give you all the necessary vitamins. Of course there are a lot of energy drinks that claim to give you energy and brain stimulus and mostly these power drinks are very cheap in the supermarket. Unfortunately these drinks contain lots of sugar or sorbitol. The sugars will only give you a short energy rush, will make you fat and are bad for your teeth. And on top of that sugars will not leave your body easily.
To break those sugars down your system will need a lot of healthy greens.

Better use our recipe and make your own power drink to increase your brain activity!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Raw radishes
  • 1 cup Carrots
  • 1 cup Frozen strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon juice
  • 1 cup Fat free yogurt
  • ½ cup Orange juice
Instructions
  1. Toss all the ingredients in your blender and blend for about 30 seconds till smooth and creamy. Pour the smoothie in two glasses.
  2. If you want to use fresh orange juice you will need three oranges for ½ cup orange juice.

Our coconut blueberry smoothie is a really fresh fruit smoothie with an amazing color. The mint taste combines perfectly with the fruit flavours.

First you will need to drain the fresh coconut water from the coconut. I always use a head screwdriver and push it through the sofest of the three holes on top of the coconut.

Unfortunately not all coconut will hold the fresh coconut water. In that case you can replace the coconut water with skimmed milk or plain water.

To easily crack the coconut open I put the coconut in my hand palm and tap the coconut alongside the equator on a hard rock.
Alternatively go outside and throw the coconut 8 feet in the air and let it crack open on the pavement.

My banana chunks were also frozen, but that is not a necessity for this coconut blueberry smoothie.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup fresh coconut chunks (150 gram)
  • ½ cup fresh coconut water (120 ml)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (150 gram)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup skimmed milk (120 ml)
  • ¾ cup fat free yogurt (180 ml)
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Crack the coconut open en extract the fresh coconut chunks. For ½ cup of coconut chunks you will need half a coconut.
  2. peel the banana and toss the banana chunks in your blender with all the other ingredients. Blend for about 45 seconds till smooth.

Instant coffee from nescafe is my favorite instant coffee, but you can also use your own brand. This is because you can use all instant coffee brands for iced coffee.

This carrot pineapple smoothie is a really healthy one! The pineapple, honey and ginger ingredients gives your smoothie a sweet and sour taste.

I just love my carrot pineapple smoothie! Carrots are not only good for eyes, but also prevent cancer, strokes and infections. Start blending those carrots and enjoy all the sweet and sour taste of your healthy orange veggies.

Carrot is a root vegetable and the wild carrot origins in Afghanistan. Already around 3000 BC carrots were cultivated in Europe! The first orange coloured carrots were cited in The Netherlands. Funny because orange is also their proud national color. Before that carrots were described as being red or yellow.

Everyday you learn something new ;)

Goodmorning everyone! This morning I made the perfect breakfast smoothie with banana and oatmeal. This diet smoothie for breakfast will boost your day!

Oatmeal for breakfast is just a perfect start of the day! It reduces the risk of heart disease and lowers your blood cholesterol.

Ingredients
  • 2 bananas (frozen pieces)
  • ½ cup fat free yogurt (120 ml)
  • 1½ cup skimmed milk (360 ml)
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 6 tablespoons uncooked oatmeal (90 ml)
