This simple smoothie works for a quick an easy breakfast, afternoon snack, or even a popsicle. I will say that it is not very sweet, so if you’re just incorporating smoothies and are looking for a sweeter option, you may want to add a little unfiltered clean apple juice to make it a little more palatable. I wouldn’t go overboard with the juice as it is a free sugar and can also contribute to yeast, imbalances, etc. This recipe can easily be modified to be used as a base for a smoothie bowl. If doing so, you will want to cut back the liquid to just over 1 cup.
2 c. Kale or Spinach (dino kale for lower oxalate)
1 c. Mango (frozen)
1 c. Strawberries (frozen)
1 c. Blueberries (frozen)
1/2 Cucumber (optional)
1 tbsp. Rosehips (optional)
1 sprig Basil (small/fresh) (optional)
2 c. Water (sub 1 c. apple juice for a sweeter smoothie)
Add all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
The berries make this smoothie higher in salicylates. If this is something you’re struggling with, this post may help you.
