Discussions Discussion Food As Medicine: the Daily Blueberry Smoothi…
K Young, Dec. 24, 2011

I try to make a daily blueberry smoothie, although sometimes I skip days for whatever reason. But it is should be a daily thing, after all blueberries are a nutrient-dense superfood. And the smoothie is packed with antioxidants that combat free radicals/helps prevent disease…

The other day I made a smoothie that went beyond my normal smoothie, which is often: frozen or fresh blueberries, raspberries, banana, almond milk, raw kale, plain yogurt, and pineapple or papaya (if I have it) and Vit. C powder (if it’s handy).

Since celery lowers blood pressure, and it’s said apples help too, a friend suggested what he adds to his smoothie - an apple (cut up), and the blends celery in while the blender is going. I had never thought of adding apple or celery. Sure, I add kale, and you can’t even taste it, but get the benefits. My friend said he makes a smoothie once a week and stores it in the fridge. I would rather do it fresh daily, hence, I don’t always get around to it.

Tried adding a couple small sticks of celery and a baby honeycrisp apple the other day to the mix - you can taste a bit of the celery, but I didn’t mind. Trying to adapt the food as medicine philosophy for prevention…amazing how much you can pack into one smoothie.
