Green Kale Pro

Adding proteins to my smoothies makes them very filling. While I opt for fresh produce, I opted for organic frozen kale because there was no organic fresh kale available. However, either would work in this recipe. Do keep in mind if you are using fresh fruits and kale you would need to add less water. This is so creamy.

The main ingredient in this smoothie Kale.

Benefits:

  • An excellent source of beta-carotene and vitamin C
  • A good source of folate, calcium, iron, and potassium
  • Contains bioflavonoids and other substances that protect against cancer.

Chilled Golden Milk

This is your non-traditional golden milk

Here is a delicious drink, that is heart-healthy and delicious. Packed with good foods this drink provides lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients. This drink is vegan and vegetarian-friendly, very low in sugar and serves one.

Tumeric is an anti-inflammatory nutritional. Curcumin is found in turmeric. Tumeric belongs in the ginger family and shares some of its anti-inflammatory properties with that spice as well. Like ginger:

  • Tumeric lowers the level of molecules that trigger inflammation.
  • Tumeric lowers levels of nitric oxide and associated with overall balance of immune system

This drink can be done with or without the protein powder, but I figure why not to add a complete meal, but if you don;t have it sure you can omit it and it will still taste great. You can use fresh or ground turmeric powder.
