Coming up with new smoothies is always fun. This combination meets all the standards of nutrient rich, super hydrating and absolutely delicious!
If you haven’t figured out why we’re calling this one the Bluebellery Smoothie, here’s the breakdown:
Blueberries: If there ever was a nutritional powerhouse, blueberries are it! Blueberries help to maintain healthy bones, lower blood pressures, manage diabetes, prevent heart disease, improve mental health and gives your skin a healthy glow.
Celery: Get crunching on some celery and you will get a boost of Vitamin K, with one cup providing you with 33% of your recommended daily allowance. Vitamin K is required to prevent blood clotting and contributes to bone health.
Kitchen Equipment for Green Smoothies
For this easy-to-make raw food green smoothie recipe, all you’ll need is a high-powered blender. I personally use and recommend the Vitamix Blender. I wrote a comparison review, comparing the Vitamix with the Blendtec that you can read here. A high-powered blender is one of the top 4 raw food kitchen tools I recommend stocking your kitchen with.
