Health Alert: 5 Inspiring And Creative Smoothie Ingredients
Smoothies offer a great source of delicious nutrition. Holistic doctor, Michael E. Rosenbaum, MD, offers 5 innovative ingredients to boost flavor and health benefits.
To help inspire creativity and assist in boosting the nutritional prowess of smoothies everywhere, holistic doctor Michael E Rosenbaum, MD, suggests incorporating some of these somewhat unusual (but healthy) smoothie ingredients.
“To really make smoothies hold you for a few hours, protein is essential,” notes Dr. Rosenbaum. “And nuts offer a healthy and delicious way to achieve this. Nuts contribute heart-healthy fats, protein, minerals and vitamin E to the mix. Good ole peanut butter goes well in anything. If you want a seedier option, try a couple spoonfuls of sesame tahini. Finally, for a real hunger-killer, try adding almond milk to your smoothie. In addition to its incomparable creamy taste, almonds seem to quell the hunger hormone ghrelin.”
For a good dose of nutrients and fiber, Dr. Rosenbaum also likes adding root vegetables to smoothies. Root vegetables offer an earthy balance to the light sweetness of fruits.
“Carrots are known for bringing the bright orange antioxidant, beta-carotene to your diet,” notes Dr. Rosenbaum. “In fact, beta-carotene is named for carrots. Beta-carotene can be cleaved in half to make the true, natural form of vitamin A. Vitamin A has been linked to supporting skin health, immune health and reproductive health. Recently a large scale epidemiological study demonstrated carrots above all other vegetables seemed to reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. Eating lots of carrots could reduce the risk by as much as 32%! No wonder Bugs Bunny was so lively!”
Finally, adding some spice to smoothies can also bring new health benefits. A cousin to the antioxidant powerhouse, turmeric, ginger claims its own reputation as a powerful healing root. Not only does it improve circulation, clear up the respiratory system and soothe sore muscles, but it helps other herbs work better. Perhaps it’s due to its circulatory boost, but ginger is known by herbalists as a root that magnifies the power of other herbs.
“While tasty and convenient, smoothie-making can get boring,” acknowledges Dr. Rosenbaum. “And if you don’t shake things up a bit you can also miss out on a delicious and easy way to bring new nutrients into your diet. By adding some creative touches and experimenting you may find ways to enjoy nutritious foods you’d never consider eating before.”
