Berry Green Layered Smoothie Recipe - Lily of the Desert

Berry Green Layered Smoothie Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? Not only are they great as a filling breakfast or snack, but they can even help sneak nutrition into normally picky eaters. This is especially true during the summer, when a cool and refreshing smoothie can provide good nutrients, fiber, vitamins, and more – all while helping prevent dehydration. 

However, even when smoothies are made with good nutrients, it’s important to make sure you’re properly absorbing them into your body. Adding a natural supplement like Lily of the Desert aloe vera can help increase those absorption levels, as well as encourage a healthy digestive and immune system.

Layers of Good Nutrients

It should be no surprise that using nutrient-dense foods is needed to support your body. Adding ingredients with many health benefits is a way to sneak in some extra nutrition. Each of the following ingredients can be found at your local grocery store and offer tons of great health benefits.

A summer favorite, juicy red strawberries contain an abundance of vitamin C, manganese, folate, and potassium. They pack a nutritional punch and can also help add a beautiful pink color to the smoothie. 

Putting in some yogurt adds in a nice amount of natural calcium, which is important for strong bones. It is high in B vitamins, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium as well. 

Using a banana in your recipe will add a smooth texture to the smoothie while also adding important fiber, antioxidants, and potassium

Tossing in a handful of kale doesn’t add any flavor to the smoothie but adds in vitamin A, calcium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin K, and phosphorus.

Honey is a great source of antioxidants, and is easier for the body to process than refined sugar. 

Finally, Lily of the Desert aloe vera juice provides an additional boost to overall good health. It works to support healthy digestion, strengthen the immune system, and help improve our natural rate of nutrient absorption. As the majority of vitamins and minerals are flushed in the digestive process, maintaining a high absorption rate can help retain what would otherwise be lost.

You can support your body and enhance your immune system by drinking smoothies bursting with healthful ingredients.

Recipe

Berry Mixture:

Kale Mixture:

Directions

This delicious berry kale smoothie is made in two parts: the berry mixture and the kale mixture. First blend the ingredients for the kale mixture and place them in a glass. Clean the blender for round two. Next, blend the berry mixture ingredients and then layer on top of the kale mixture to end up with a beautifully layered smoothie. 

Don’t forget: it is easier to blend a smoothie if you put all the non-frozen ingredients in the blender first, and then add in the ice. If you don’t consume dairy-based products, swap out plain yogurt and milk with a non-dairy option like coconut or almond milk and yogurt. 

Adding Aloe Can Boost Health Benefits

When you enjoy healthy smoothies, it can help you feel full longer due to the high fiber content. It also aids in digestion and immunity, especially with the addition of aloe juice. Just as drinking a blended liquid is easily digestible for your gut, the ingredients also help to naturally detoxify your body at the same time. As a result, people who deal with digestive issues tend to find that easily-absorbed nutrients, fiber, and the aid of aloe juice can help keep their systems regular.
