The SuperFood Detox Code Review

by Ellen Thomas (2019-05-30)

GREEN VEGETABLES - Cabbage and broccoli are The SuperFood Detox Code iron-smart additions to juice blends. Increase your intake slowly, however; taking in too much at a time may cause gas. Kale, mustard greens, and the leafy tops of turnips and beets are also excellent iron sources. These ingredients are used in "green juices," one of the major components of a juicing program. Balance the sometimes-bitter taste of greens with carrots, tomatoes, or a sweet fruit sweet such as strawberries, all of which also contain vitamin C for optimal iron absorption.So, what nutritious drinks am I speaking about? Shakes and smoothies of course! Today, however I will focus on smoothies because although the rest of the country is preparing for the cooler months we are still enduring hot weather and what better way to cool down than with smoothies.Our family loves smoothies and we love creating different ones all the time. One of them includes an ingredient that many would not consider. We enjoy shakes with fresh fruit and for added protein we add tofu. Yes, you read correctly, tofu.Now stop wrinkling your nose and give it a chance. My family made the same face you are making at this very moment and their minds were quickly changed once they tasted the delicious smoothie I made. I also make popsicles with this same recipe and are wonderful for teething tots or simply children of all ages.So, now that I have sparked your interest, I will share my recipe with you.I use strawberries, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, mangoes, pineapples and kiwi. We like to freeze the fruit to make wonderful and delicious cold smoothies. It is a great way to use ripened fruit too. We simply freeze all overly ripened fruit and save them for our smoothies and also for muffins and breads. I suggest peeling your bananas before freezing which makes it much easier to handle.
