Getting in your daily dose of fruits and veggies can sometimes be difficult but a smoothie is the perfect way to sneak in your full daily dose. I had been slacking on getting enough fruit and veggies for awhile until I started using smoothies.
This recipe is one I made up one day when I had a bunch of extra left over fruit and was craving something sweet.
The smoothie recipe is designed for a small nutribullet or 2 cups full of smoothie juice. If you want to use a bigger blender than you can simple double the recipe to make more.
The best part is this recipe tastes very similar to Jamba Juice’s Caribbean Passion which is sooo delicious. It’s honestly the perfect mix of sweet and tart.
So let’s get on to the recipe.
Antioxidant Vegan Smoothie
*All the fruit ingredients are frozen so that no ice is needed to make this smoothie. This recipes is portioned out for a Nutribullet.
1/4 cup OJ
1/4 cup Spinach
4 frozen pineapple chucks
5 whole frozen strawberries
1/4 cup frozen cranberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
3 dashes of ground ginger
Fill the rest of the Nutribullet cup to top with water.
How to Make:
Add all the ingredients to the Nutribullet and then blend until all ingredients are fully pureed and combined and ENJOY!
And that’s all there is to it! This is a very simple and crazy delicious recipe.
I suggest using a straw to drink this since it contains apple cider vinegar to help protect your teeth’s enamel from the vinegar. You of course can omit this if you do not like drinking ACV.
Getting all the fruit pre-frozen helps you save a lot of money, but if you prefer fresh fruits then simply add ice and use a bigger blender.
If this recipe is too tart for you then cut back on the ACV and the cranberries to sweeten it up. However, I would suggest keeping as much of the cranberries as possible since they are what gives this smoothie all it’s antioxidants.
