5 Easy Anti-Aging Juice And Smothie Recipes

Cooking and spending time in the kitchen is one of the most productive and engaging activities for seniors. But as it gets warmer outside, there’s no better way to mix things up in the kitchen than by preparing a refreshing smoothie or shake. Luckily, you can pack your smoothies and juices with essential vitamins and minerals – and did we mention they’re super easy to make? Speaking of fun, easy springtime activities for seniors, we came up with a list of 5 amazing anti-aging smoothie recipes that will help keep your body and mind nourished and protected.

Skincare

This recipe not only incorporates great sources of protein like walnuts, but the richest sources of Vitamin C , K, A and so much more! Carrots are the holy grail of skincare as they protect the skin with free-radical fighting antioxidants- which make them a key ingredient in any anti-aging skincare products.

 

  • A handful of spinach
  • 1 medium-sized carrot, grated
  • 1 avocado
  • Handful of walnuts

 

 

Energy

One of the biggest misconceptions about feeling tired is that you haven’t been getting enough sleep – but it usually has to do with the foods you’ve been eating. Fruits like pineapple and blueberries not only carry plenty of anti-aging antioxidants, but help in digestion, which makes you feel tired and groggy. Finish off this smoothie with spinach and coconut water for extra clarity and hydration.

  • ½ cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup green apple

 

Heart Health

Make it a priority to drink this twice a week, and make sure you’re always stocked with bananas and almonds. Almonds aren’t only packed with protein, but are anti-inflammatory and help reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in particular. Bananas are famous for potassium, but did you know that they help absorb magnesium, a vitamin essential to keeping your blood pressure down? Why don’t your try one of these amazing smoothie recipes.

 

  • 1 organic banana (peeled)
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tsp of chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of low-fat vanilla greek yogurt

 

Immune Boost

As we get older, there’s a much greater need to boost our immune system in check to protect ourselves from letting the flu or common cold take a serious toll on our health. Once they’re in season, stock up on some antioxidant-rich strawberries, and for future benefit, buy yourself a cancer-fighting mint plant to keep in your kitchen to add to any smoothie recipes.

 

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of kale
  • 8-10 strawberries, chopped
  • 1 sprig of fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2-3 ice cubes

 

Stress Relief

One of the most common reasons why we feel stressed is because we feel hungry! No surprise there. However, make sure you’re keeping with a balanced diet and consuming foods with healthy fats like avocados! Besides being a staple in any Mexican kitchen, avocados are packed with fatty acids that keep you full and nourished. Pair it with energy-boosting apple and the ultimate superfood-spinach, and you’re all set with the ultimate anti-aging and stress relieving smoothie recipes.

 

  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 apples
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 Tbsps chia seeds
  • 1 cup of filtered water
