Six Smoothie Recipes for Constipation and Acne Relief
I recommend drinking a morning smoothie if you have constipation or if you have skin problems like acne. Drinking a high fiber smoothie relieves and prevents constipation. It will also provide the nutrients that are necessary for having or keeping a nice clean and smooth skin.
So, here are the six smoothie recipes you can blend.
* Apple Smoothie
* Apple-Barley Smoothie
* Apricot Smoothie
* Peach-Rice Dream Smoothie
* Pineapple Smoothie
* Strawberry Smoothie
Mix in the blender the following.
1-2 small apples cut into wedges1 banana1 cup 50:50 rice dream: almond milk¼ cup or less of raisins soaked overnight1-teaspoon honey1-2 cubes of ice1-teaspoon lecithin granules2 tablespoons flax seed oil
Start by mixing the banana and the liquids. Then add slices of apples to get the consistency you like. In all of your smoothies add flax seed oil for nice smooth skin. I also add a tablespoon of flax seed straight into the blender and the blender will chop them up.Apple-Barley Smoothie
Mix in the blender the following.
1 cup of sliced apples with peel1/2 cup of cooked barley1/4 cup of soaked raisins1/4 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring1-1 ½ cup of 50:50 rice dream: almond milk1-teaspoon lecithin granules2 Tablespoons flax seed oil
Make sure you use the lecithin granules in these smoothies since lecithin helps to breakdown the flax oil into tiny droplets and makes it more digestible.
One cup of fresh apricots or dried apricots that were soaked overnightJuice of 1/2 a lemonTwo oz. of prune juiceOne teaspoon or more of oat banOne teaspoon of mineral wheyOne tablespoon of flax seed oilOne tablespoon of lecithin granules
Add a slight amount of distilled water or ice cubes to make the consistency to your liking. This smoothie is good for constipation and acne.
Peach-Rice Dream Smoothie
Mix in the blender:
2 fresh peaches with peel1-cup rice dream1/2 banana1-teaspoon sesame seeds1-teaspoon sunflower seed1-tablespoon lecithin granules2 tablespoons flax seed oilIn place of rice dream you can use almond milk. I now only use almond milk to make my smoothies. Place all of the seeds straight into the blender. This smoothie has plenty of fiber. You may want to increase the amount of sesame and sunflower seeds.
Mix the following in a blender.
1-2 cups of fresh pineapples1/2 cups apple slices1/4-cup fresh apple juice1/2-cup almond milk (more or less as needed)1 banana1-tablespoon lecithin2-tablespoons flax seeds2 teaspoons bran (wheat, oat or rice)
You can add more lecithin if you like. Lecithin does not have a taste. This smoothie is jam packed with fiber.
Mix in a blender the following ingredients.
1 banana1-tablespoon of lecithin granules1-teaspoon of any type of bran1 cup or more 50:50 rice dream: almond milkNow add strawberries one by one with the blender on until you get the consistency you like.1-tablespoon flax seeds1 or 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds1-teaspoon sesame seeds1 tablespoon of flax seed oil
You can add liquid minerals or vitamins to these smoothies and give them an additional nutritional value.
There you have the smoothies that I make. Start making and drinking them and see the health benefits that you'll get.
