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.

A spinach melon smoothie will boost your day! The honeydew melon is the sweetener for this green smoothie with frozen spinach and celery.

Spinach is one of the best veggies to use in a green smoothie. Raw frozen spinach chopped or leaves contain many vitamins and minerals!

Make sure you do not buy the creamed frozen spinach for this smoothie.

My spinach melon smoothie has a pretty sweet taste, because the honeydew contains a lot of natural fruit sugars. Celery contains a lot of water, but also some vitamins.
I use celery a lot in my green smoothies to give the main veggie some additional flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (150 gram)
  • 1 cup honeydew melon (150 gram)
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 cup skimmed milk (240 ml)
  • ¾ cup fat free yogurt (180ml)

The sweet taste of this green smoothie comes from the kiwis and apple juice. I just love this green smoothie with its perfect sweet taste and all the right nutritions like copper, iron and many vitamins.

Kale is pretty hot in the United States at the moment and considered as a "Superfood". Not surprisingly, because they contain so many good nutritions.

Did you know that kale or also known as borecole comes from the typical Dutch dish "Boerenkool"? In the Netherlands they are eating this kale stew already for many decades mainly in winter and autumn.

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 ;)

  • 1½ cup carrot in pieces (275 gram)
  • ½ cup pineapple pieces (75 gram)
  • ¾ tablespoon ginger root shavings
  • 1½ cup fat free yogurt (360 ml)
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions
  1. Wash the carrots and chop them in small pieces, because carrots are pretty tough to blend. Grate little slices of a peeled ginger root and toss all the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth.
