Therapeutic Anemia-improving Blue Smoothie Recipe:
1 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
1 cup nutmilk (or other liquid)
1/2 cup Aronia juice
1/2 raw or cooked beet
1 bunch beet leaves
1 bunch spinach leaves
1/2 cup banana
1 tbs hemp protein powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbs honey (or sweetener of your choice)
1 tsp spirulina
Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute and enjoy!
A few notes:
--If you like your smoothie more frozen you can freeze your bananas.
--If you don't have nutmilk you can use coconut milk or coconut water, I sometimes use hot steeped tea if it's winter so the smoothie isn't ice cold from the frozen blueberries.
--If you don't have a high powered blender, steam your beets first...they will blend much better once cooked and slightly softer
--feel free to replace or add any ingredients, but remember this is a specially created recipe for those who are having a hard time trying to get or keep their iron levels up. Make sure you add or remove with that in mind!
This is a therapeutic smoothie specifically designed to help people who have low iron levels. If you are pregnant and worried about anemia or just visited the doctor and found out your hemoglobin levels are too low, try it out. Drink this smoothie on a daily basis for two weeks and watch your energy levels go up. Let's fight this iron deficiency battle one Therapeutic Blue Smoothie at a time!!
Good luck friends!!
