Fibre rich smoothie



Welcome back!

If you read my blog last month, you now know that March is nutrition month, and every year myself and the rest of the dietitians at St Mary's hospital plan a special event to celebrate and promote healthy nutrition. This year we made smoothies! Pina Colada, strawberry peach, Banana peanut-butter, high protein and green smoothies! It was such a hit we had patients and staff lined up as far as the eye could see! That was usually because the line turned a corner but still, my point is...people LOVE smoothies! They're fast, nutritious and delicious!!!

So, today I thought I'd post a High Fiber smoothie recipe. This apple, carrot and cucumber recipe is rich in soluble fiber, the type of fibre that helps lower LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose levels. However, it has to be made in a blender..NOT a juicer! Juicing removes all the fiber so you don't get the same benefit.


High Fibre smoothie
1 carrot
1 apple 
1/2 cucumber
Water (to desired thickness)

Peel the carrot and cucumber, peel and core the apple and place them in a blender, add water, blend until smooth and voila! One delicious, nutritious, high fiber smoothie.
Enjoy!
1 smoothie Approx 90 kcals.
Recipe from PasseportSante.

Hi Sandra, I LOVE your blog and I loved this smoothie, but mine came out orange! Should I have used a green apple? a smaller carrot? Not that it matters it was still refreshing and great. Please post more smoothie recipes. My kids love them too. Thanks Sandra, looking forward to next month. Melanie

Hi Melanie, Thanks, I'm glad you loved the smoothie! As for the colour, I had posted the original photo used by Passeport Sante, which is the green smoothie. However, mine came out orange also. I suppose I should have taken another photo and re-posted but I was feeling a bit lazy that day! So, no, a green apple or a smaller carrot wouldn't have made a difference. Sandra
