Super Metabolism Booster Smoothie

Juice your way to better health

I find that juicing is very good but there’s always a better way to using your own home made juice and incorporate it into your Smoothies. I have a very special recipe that I would like to share with you. I call it my Super Metabolism Booster Smoothie.

Here is the thing…. we all need a well-balanced meal a day, that should be a regiment in all our homes. We all know that meal is breakfast. So how can we accomplish  this?….. By bringing together all the necessary ingredients, into one super smoothie a day, with a little effort we can achieve this.

I know that there are a lot of mothers out there that are single and it is hard to keep your family going with out the  help of fast-foods and there doesn’t seem to be time in a day to what I am proposing. Stay with me to the end and we will look at ways to accomplish this.

Juice your way to better health as I’m making the well-learned statement. There is a lot talk out there on the Internet, about juicing. Personally, I believe we lose a lot of fiber, in juice. But if we put together this combination,  juicing and smoothies. We blend up a super food. Active, and nutritionally alive…

 My young teenage grandson that is super active in Basketball and needs the extra help, to boost his metabolism and feed his muscles. As well as fortify his bone structure, as he is still a growing teenager.

My daughter is Type 2 diabetic. Diabetes can be cured and we are on a quest to reverse and/or / curb, her diabetes. That information is the first blog post of the Diabetes Loophole,  great information to have and share with your loved ones. To limit sugar intake and replace with natural sugars, like fruit,  honey and stevia.

Myself, I’m a 68-year-old grandmother, with high blood pressure. And need to reactivate my metabolism… so I can be there for my loved ones. high blood pressure is also covered in, Diabetic Loophole. It sounds a bit crazy if you don’t have Diabetes but the book is a eye opener and can help you to jump start a healthier way for your family.

 That said let’s get busy:

In this blend, I will also use leafy greens, like spinach, romaine lettuce, kale or swiss chard. It’s very hard to add the greens to your smooth without making a mess. So I came up with… adding to my blender  2 cups of water   2 cups packed down greens and blend.

For mothers out there that are working it might seem hard to accomplish this but I can tell you that it doesn’t lake long to do this you can accomplish it in 1 hour of your time  once a week . Most likely on your days off work.

Then I put them in containers and freeze. This will make approximately 4 to 5 small containers to freeze. I will add one container of greens to the smoothie I am preparing for the day.

You want to have at least 7 days of greens so you don’t make too much work, for yourself.  For me and my grandson, we like the spinach the best. You might think “yuk”, but with all your other flavors going on, you can’t really taste the leafy greens.

You might think that your kids will not like this but I know by experience with my teenager that they will like it and what a good way to get them to eat there  greens.

So don’t let that hold you back, you’re getting the nutrients, they’re supplying. For each week I will do a different batch,  just to keep things interesting, to your taste-buds. As all natural health supplements, take time and consistency to reap the benefits, actually feel the Smoothies beneficial effects.

Juice: in a juicer add 1 beetroot, 2 apples, 2 medium carrots, 1-inch piece of ginger and 2 celery stocks. This will make about 1 cup of juice. So if you like you can juice for three or four days depending if you have room in your freezer. Use  1/2 cup in your smoothie for the day and put the rest in ice cube trays then freeze. You will know how many to us per smoothie, depending on how much you what to make.

By multiplying this  in the same way you would with the leafy greens you can also freeze enough for a week.

The nice thing about freezing you don’t lose the nutritional value that are in your leafy greens , fruits or veggies

Blender:

  • Add 2 cups of mixed frozen Berries,
  • 1 banana,
  • 1 tbs chia seed,
  • 2 scoops of protein powder( optional)
  • 1tsp cinnamon,
  • 1/2tsp turmeric,
  • 20 drops of trace minerals,
  • 1tsp of coconut oil and
  • 1TB of apple cider vinegar.

Let me tell you a bit about trace minerals. Trace mineral are what we get from the ground. They are absorbed though the root system of plants to the leaves and or veggies we eat.

Then we eat them, but it is a scientific faked that our earth is being depleted because the farmers are not butting them  back into  their fields because it is not mandatory.

These trace minerals convert to what we know as electrolytes. These are accentual  for braking down our food line and transporting all the nutrients to our vital organs. So that is why I highly recommend adding trace minerals to your smoothies.

Trace minerals are  microscopic   and we need very little but they are accentual to our system.

I always us fresh bananas,  I buy up to three days max. The ones that turn on me I will freeze and us them in baking my banana cakes. (:  and frozen bananas make a great snack for the kids. You might not be able to keep to many in your freezer when there are kids around.

Know add the juice you just prepared  and one frozen container of your leafy greens, and two cups of cold water or ice cubs   blend for about 2 minutes or until you can see that you have a great looking smoothie. If you need to add more water go ahead, what you want is 6 cups of your prepared smoothie in your blender. “Enjoy”

I use what they call the super blend of frozen Berries. They call it the super blend because the darker fruit tends to have the highest  nutritional  value. Blueberry, blackberry, & cherry.  In your frozen fruit section, it will sometimes say Super Fruit Blend.

The frozen fruit give you great texture to your smoothie, but there is also a plus with using frozen fruit. The highest nutritional value are in nice ripe fruit. Frozen fruit is packed at there ripest point  then frozen . Frozen  fruit do not loss there nutritional value or go bad,  with fresh fruit you might end up throwing fruit away if it is not used up.

For us…… I divide the smoothie into three. If you like a bit more sweetness you can add Stevia for sweetness. We personally like it the way it is. If this is for just one person and looking to lose weight drink your glass and put the rest in the frig you can drink this thought out the day. You will find that you feel very replenished throughout your day,  because of the chia seed.  I will talk a bit more about this in my next blog. You also need to eat two meals a day Lunch and dinner.  Do a bit of exercise. Walking is a good routine to add to your schedule.  And you can work it up to an hour a day, whatever suits you the best.

Keep in your pantry Fresh and frozen fruit:

  • Fresh vegetables
  • plain Yogurt (organic, Greek, homemade)
  • Super-foods cacao, maca, aloe vera,  , spirulina, ext
  • Herbs and spices (cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, nutmeg, cayenne, mint etc)
  • Local and/or organic honey
  • Local and/or maple syrup or Stevia
  • organic apple-cider vinegar (do not us the clear vinegar us the one that looks kind of murky)

leafy greens (spinach, kale, Romane lettuce, swiss char

Stay away from or do not add to your smoothie:

  • ice cream, yogurt and sherbet
  • Chocolate syrups and powders
  • Sugar as a sweetener
  • Agave nectar
  • Most stores bought honey
  • Non-organic peanut butter
  • Cheap protein powders
  • Chocolate pudding mix
  • Cool Whip or whip cream
  • Cream soda

Using protein powder, there are a lot of pros and cons and there are a lot of brand names out there. Look for a blend that has a good review backing it up. When you use Protein powder,  you also need to hydrate though out the day by drinking at least 8 glasses of water though out the day.

If you are prone to constipation consider not using it.  But add more chia seed about 2 tbs. this will keep you regular. That is also why I use the Chia seed. It is much better than flax seed. Chia seed can be found in any health food store, or Bulk Barns the same as trace minerals.

I use frozen fruit because I can store them in my freezer and not worry about the fruit going bad. And it gives you a lot of texture to your smoothie.

This super smoothie I make only once a day and in the evening

In the evening meal, I make a Smoothie with frozen fruit banana and  coconut milk, or almond milk.  For those of you that would like to loss weight  drink about 30 minutes before you eat use water or ice cubs instead of milk. This will help curb your appetite and you will find yourself eating much less.

Eat a well-balanced meal, obstane to one helping.  I highly recommend  staying away from soy milk or anything to do with soy products.

There are some very nice frozen fruit blends in the supermarket, Strawberry, Raspberry, mango, pineapple, cranberry, peach, mix and match and have fun doing it. Juice your oranges, lemon, apples and veggie to add to your smoothie  , add a banana to give it a very nice smooth texture. There are frozen bananas also

I have included the link to the follow-up blog.

  1. Oooh, Linda, you are speaking my language here – I love chia seeds, green smoothies, frozen banana’s (I make ice cream from them too – just freeze, blend to ice cream consistency and eat – or pop back into the freezer for later. Also lovely with cocoa powder to create a chocolate ice cream, or berries for a berry ice cream).
    After reading this article I shall reintegrate smoothies into my daily diet, so delicious and far more nutritious than I realized. I also soak chia seeds in almond milk overnight in the fridge and eat for breakfast in the mornings – delish! A bit pricey in South Africa though, but worth paying for the treat.
    From a protein perspective, I see you mention it but are not too keen on including protein powder. Would we need to increase protein in other meals or does the smoothie contain enough protein as it is?

    1. Oh, Louisa, I am so glad you will be adding smoothies to your meals they are so powerful especially as this one is packed with power to detox your system. at the end of the post, you may have seen it, the follow up of why all these ingredients will detox your system.

      It all started with my grandson looking for ways to get vital nutrients into his body. At this stage, I needed something that would start to build and sustain his growing body and mind. It was a constant struggle to get him to eat properly. In other posts, I have talked about what I had found and how these products have helped to stop weight gain and how they worked to turn his learning disability around. Know I needed building blocks and I found it the same way I found the others through the help of a loving Heavenly Father that was there for me, forever showing me the way, “through the internet,” incredible but true.

      As I mentioned about the other products, a specific product is Patriot Power Greens and it does have Protein already in it. I always add this to the smoothy it was one of the main ingredients to start with and what inspired to find and add, in such a way that would be not only a detox nutritional but taste good too.

      With the Power greens, I had no need to worry about hard stools or constipation because we were already consuming water on a regular base, nor did I need to add more to the mix.

      But protein because it is high in fiber and the market is full of these products it is very hard to say which is the best power to add. For me, it is Patriot Power greens without a dought. But to say that is it necessary my answer is no it is not. There is no protein added to this drink other then what I have already mentioned and yes you need to increase protein in your other meals. Protein is not a detoxing agent but vital to your system for good health in muscle, bones and all-around health for your vital organs.

      Again thanks Louise for visiting me it has been fun I hope you return soon.

      Always a better way
      Linda

  2. Thank you for such a detailed post. The freezing of the juicing is an awesome tip. I do not have a juicer but did manage to add lemon and about 1/2 of an apple with banana and frozen berries to a smoothie one morning. It was quite good. I didn’t know about the chia, turmeric and other super foods so will be bookmarking this to come back. So helpful. Thank you again.

    1. Your very welcome Merry it is super fun to make and all your family member will enjoy it and you will be providing them with two great benefits detoxing and nourishment. ENJOY

      always a better way
      sending blessings your way
      Linda
