Six Smoothie Recipes for Constipation and Acne Relief
Contributed by: Rudy Silva
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.
1. Apple Smoothie
2. Apple-Barley Smoothie
3. Apricot Smoothie
4. Peach-Rice Dream Smoothie
5. Pineapple Smoothie
6. Strawberry Smoothie
Mix in the blender the following:
1-2 small apples cut into wedges; 1 banana; 1 cup 50:50 rice
dream: almond milk; 1/4 cup or less of raisins soaked overnight;
1-teaspoon honey; 1-2 cubes of ice; 1 teaspoon lecithin granules;
2 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
Mix in the blender the following:
1 cup of sliced apples with peel; 1/2 cup of cooked barley; 1/4
cup of soaked raisins; 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring;
1-1 1/2 cups of 50:50 rice dream: almond milk; 1 teaspoon
lecithin granules; 2 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
overnight; Juice of 1/2 a lemon; Two oz. of prune juice; One
teaspoon or more of oat bran; One teaspoon of mineral whey; One
tablespoon of flax seed oil; One 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 peel; 1 cup rice dream; 1/2 banana; 1
teaspoon sesame seeds; 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds; 1 tablespoon
lecithin granules; 2 tablespoons flax seed oil.
In 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 pineapples; 1/2 cups apple slices; 1/4 cup
fresh apple juice; 1/2 cup almond milk (more or less as needed);
1 banana; 1 tablespoon lecithin; 2 tablespoons flax seeds; 2
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 banana; 1 tablespoon of lecithin granules; 1 teaspoon of any
type of bran; 1 cup or more 50:50 rice dream: almond milk; Now
add strawberries one by one with the blender on until you get
the consistency you like; 1 tablespoon flax seeds; 1 or 2
tablespoons sunflower seeds; 1 teaspoon sesame seeds; 1
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.
