Leftover Green Smoothie Recipe
I used to have a problem - I was a chronic food-waster.
Every week I would stock my fridge with fresh fruit and veggies, intending to eat a heathy dose of plants yet every week I would throw out a ton of waste into the green bin.
I quit wasting food by making leftover smoothies and cleaned up my fridge at the same time.
This leftover smoothie recipe gives you a lot of bang for your blend. No produce is safe from the blender except for onions or anything in the onion family, most herbs because they are too strong and potatoes because ew!
Throw the following in a blender:
- Two cups orange juice
- 1/3 cup carrot juice
- One apple
- A handful of mixed greens
- 2 spoon scoops of papaya fruit
- 1 ½ Tablespoons of chia seeds
- ½ teaspoon papaya seeds
- ½ teaspoon spirulina
- ½ teaspoon dulse
Did you know seaweed starts its growing period around Christmas, when Earth is tilted away from the sun in our northern hemisphere?
It’s timely to note the power of nori especially as many people, especially here in SeaLuxe's home base of British Columbia, follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.
How adult we felt when we went to the mall with our friends to buy an Orange Julius with a few quarters in our pockets to sip on as we hung out in the food court! Check out this smoothie recipe for a healthy version, with bladderwrack.
All this talk of how good Bladderwrack is for you has resulted in you guys asking, “I’m game, so where do I find it?” We’re so happy to hear your interest in this wonderful sea green.
Bladderwrack, a brown seaweed often found on our local beaches, contains a powerful anti-inflammatory called fucoidan. In SeaLuxe's experience, this is one of the best ingredients in the battle against redness of the skin.
Brrrr, it's cold out there! But this weather is perfect for warm smoothies! We're delighted to share this recipe for our delicious and filling pear ginger smoothie with you.
The nori industry in Japan was in decline after the Second World War as farmers were having issues with its cultivation. Harvests were unpredictable due to being particularly susceptible to pollution in ocean waters as well as typhoons.
Cleansers have one job – to remove make-up, dead skin cells, dirt and oil. Good cleansers usually are cream or oil-based that come with skin conditioning butters and/or oils that dissolve excess grease and grime.
Alright, seaweed lovers (and soon-to-be seaweed lovers), we have a smoothie recipe for you! We decided to start with using wakame as the sea green because it is widely available from your local health food store and it has fabulous powers.
Like with other sea greens, wakame contains high levels of calcium, iodine, niacin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that it, like other brown seaweeds, also contains fucoxanthin which can help burn fat.
