Red Smoothie Recipe

November 14, 2019

When I think of a traditional smoothie, I think of a thick, creamy drink made with raw fruit, vegetables and usually some kind of dairy product blended together.  Usually quite heavy in sugar and calories. I’ve found that a simple nourishing smoothie consisting of only fruits, vegetables and water, can be a healthier alternative.  Typically, this will result in a pulp rich texture, but as preferences vary, the additional liquid can be added for your desired thickness.

Enjoy this immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory smoothie for a snack or meal!
