It is considered to be a post workout smoothie because of:

Plus, this simple smoothie tastes really good too!

A different take on fresh tomato juice, it is best served very cold and makes a great summer treat.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes cut in quarters and chilled in your freezer for about 15 minutes

Tomorrow morning try this mocha smoothie recipe to get your day started. Its easier to make than eggs and way healthier than getting any of the drive through breakfasts. Also much less expensive than the designer coffee and pastry shops.

Go healthy and get a power start on the day!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 3 Tbsp. spoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 cup of low fat or soy milk
  • 2 teaspoon of instant coffee
  • 1 cup of crushed ice

Everything goes into the blender at the same time and blend until you get the consistency you like best.

For even more healthy stuff, include a Tbs. of Chia or Flax seed too. (I prefer Chia).

The Papaya fruit offers a mild tropical flavor that plays very well with a number of other popular smoothie ingredients like bananas and pineapples. Papaya fruit makes a particularly good smoothie because of its creamy texture when blended.

Nutritionally, papayas are a good source of A, E, and C vitamins as well as fiber, antioxidants, and potassium. Recently, some nutritional studies have indicated that a diet rich in papaya fruit may very well help in the prevention of heart diseases and stroke. So, there isn’t a lot not to like about papaya fruit, especially when you realize how low in calories the fruit is.

This smoothie mix uses a healthy mix of fruit and veggies to provide an exceptionally healthy meal. In your favorite blender mix:

  • 2 1/3 cups papaya, peeled and without seeds
  • 1 sliced pear, without core
  • 1 sliced orange, without peel
  • 2 cups leafy green such as baby spinach or Kale
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 cup cold filtered water

For even more nutritional value, include a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
