Preferring to get my vitamins and nutrition through whole foods and herbs rather than vitamin pills, I’m a huge fan of this herbal smoothie recipe.
Instructions from the package:
- 1 rounded teaspoon of Herba-Smoothie mix (Don’t underestimate the strength of these herbs; 1 teaspoon will go a long, long way!)
- 1 cup frozen fruit (So far I’ve used frozen peaches, blueberries, and mixed fruit. Blueberries were my favorite.)
- 1/2 cup yogurt (According to the package, any yogurt will work, mentioning homemade is best; I prefer plain greek yogurt.)
- 3/4 cup juice (So far I’ve used orange juice and V8. Whatever you use, watch for sugar content.)
1 to 2 ounces of NingXia Red. (Not included in the recipe, but added because I enjoy the benefits.) I use a full 2 ounces when I need an extra kick of nutrition; otherwise, 1 ounce a day is sufficient. According to the Young Living site:
NingXia Red® is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils.
And ta-da! This smoothie is great for everyone in the family, although the BHS site notes that the daily boost herba-smoothie mix should be used with caution during pregnancy.
