Create Your Own Smoothie Recipes for Constipation

Creating your own smoothie recipes for constipation is a snap.  Just follow the guidelines below and you'll be in smoothie heaven. Remember to choose the items with plenty of fiber. Another trick is to leave the skins on fruit such as apples and pears.

Greens (1 to 2 cups): Spinach and kale may turn your smoothie green, but once they're mixed with fruit, you'll hardly be able to taste them. You can also try adding beet or dandelion greens, sprouts, or arugula.

Fruit (1 to 2 cups): Frozen works best here, but if you use fresh, just add some ice cubes to give it a frosty consistency. I personally like to freeze coconut water in ice cube trays for extra flavor. Mix it up with two to four kinds of fruit such as banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mango, peach, pineapple, pear, cherries, apple, grapes, papaya, oranges, melon, or kiwi.

Thickener (1/4 to 1/2 cup): For the perfectly creamy texture and for added protein and fiber, mix in some Greek yogurt or cottage cheese (3 ounces), nut butter (one tablespoon) or nuts (1/8 cup almonds, walnuts, or cashews), avocado (1/4 fruit), cannelloni beans (1/4 cup), baked sweet potato (1/4 cup), oats (1/4 cup), or soft tofu (1/2 cup).

Liquid (1 to 2 cups): Water or some type of milk (cow, soy, almond, coconut or rice) is always a winner, but you can also experiment with adding green tea; freshly squeezed juice such as carrot, beet, or orange.

Optional extras: Mix in a serving of your favorite protein powder to build muscle and stave off hunger. Or, for added fiber, add flax meal, wheat germ, or chia seeds (1/2 teaspoon). For a health boost, add fish or flaxseed oil or probiotics (recommended dosage). And for extra pizzazz and flavor, add cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, maple syrup, honey, dates, fresh herbs, or fresh ginger (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon).
