What Is In The Hormone Helper Smoothie From NutriBullet?
The NutriBullet Hormone Helper Smoothie ingredients are avocado, beets, broccoli, grapes, raspberries, goji berries, olive oil, water, and crushed ice.
Avocados – Avocados are neither fruit nor vegetable, but are actually considered berries. They are an excellent source of vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K. Avocados promote healthy gut bacteria, reduce the risk of heart disease, and provide essential nutrients required during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
Beets – Beets possess a particularly powerful nutritional profile. They are extremely low in calories, yet rich in vitamins and minerals important to athletic performance. Beets contain significant amounts of folate, important to physical growth and heart health, manganese, which assists bone strength and brain function, and copper, which facilitates energy production. Studies have shown that beets can help lower blood pressure, fight inflammation, and reduce age-related cognitive decline.
Broccoli – Broccoli is a nutrient-dense cruciferous vegetable that is widely known for its health benefits. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, and contains significant amounts of folate, iron, manganese, and potassium. The beneficial plant compound sulforaphane, abundant in broccoli, is known to provide excellent protection against various types of cancer.
Grapes – Grapes have been cultivated for thousands of years and offer a host of nutritional health benefits. They are rich in vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, and potassium. The antioxidant resveratrol in Grapes helps lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and protect against heart disease.
Raspberries – Raspberries are a popular seasonal fruit that are actually a member of the rose family. They are packed with vitamin C and manganese and also provide several B vitamins, vitamin E, and vitamin K. Raspberries are very high in antioxidant plant compounds that protect against cell damage and can help reduce your risk of various chronic diseases.
Goji Berries – Goji berries have recently come into superfood fashion due to their abundant antioxidant profile and powerful medicinal qualities. Just one serving (5 tablespoons) provides a staggering 500% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A and significant amounts of vitamin C and iron. Goji berries are best known for their ability to promote immune function and support healthy vision.
Olive Oil – Olive oil is a controversial healthy dietary fat that has been used in cooking for thousands of years. It is rich in the good monounsaturated fat oleic acid and contains heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fats. Olive oil has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, lowers your risk of heart disease, can help prevent strokes, and has been shown to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
- Place avocado, beets, broccoli, grapes, raspberries, goji berries, olive oil, water, and crushed ice into a NutriBullet blender and secure the lid.
- Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
- Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
- Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.
- If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.
