Health Benefits of Smoothies

When you add a smoothie to your diet, you are adding about five servings of fruits and vegetables to your diet daily. That’s a significant boost in nutrition, especially if you are only eating 2 to 3 vegetables and 1 to 2 fruits. The fruits are cleansing to the body whereas the vegetables are body builders.

Some Great Smoothie Food Combos

Here are a few ideas of how to combine those fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds into your next smoothies:


  1. Kefir milk, strawberries, kale leaf, Swiss chard leaf, peach, parsley, chlorophyll, ice cubes.
  2. Yogurt, blueberries, juice of one lemon, ginger powder, lecithin, Swiss chard, alfalfa, barley green powder, ice cubes.
  3. Protein powder, hempseed powder, green powder, ripe peach, spinach, avocado, coconut, Swiss chard, ice cubes.
  4. Yogurt, blackberries, probiotics capsule, nutritional yeast, juice of one lemon, spinach, alfalfa or green powder mixture, apple, ice cubes.
  5. Apples, strawberries, spirulina, probiotics, lecithin, nutritional yeast, cottage cheese, almonds, ice cubes.
  6. Vanilla yogurt, almonds, probiotics, nutritional yeast, green powder mix, avocado, broccoli, beet, carrot, celery, apple.

The health benefits of smoothies and the recipe possibilities are truly endless. Keep in mind your big goal is to get a variety of fruits and vegetables in. Don’t make the same smoothie daily because then you get in a rut where you are only consuming the same type of nutrients day in and day out. It’s a variety of nutrients that really makes the biggest difference.

Try a smoothie a day for 30 days and see what happens to your health and your overactive bladder. You might be pleasantly surprised.
