Strong Bones Smoothie

BySarah Axtell, ND April 3, 2024

This smoothie contains the superfood, moringa. One tsp of moringa provides 80 mg calcium. In addition to moringa being a rich source of bone-building minerals, it also contains phytochemicals and antioxidants that have been shown in some research studies to reduce chronic inflammation.

Use collard greens and soymilk for added calcium!

Ingredients:

  • ½ banana
  • ¼ fresh avocado (or 2-3 TBSP frozen avocado)
  • 1 tsp moringa powder
  • 2 cups kale, spinach, or collard greens
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder (ie. Sunwarrior)
  • 12 ounces unsweetened soymilk or almond milk

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
