Smoothie Headache Cure

The following smoothie recipe and variation are said to be not only healthy in a general sort of way but also as a cure for migraine headaches. I don’t know whether that’s the case or not, but I’m sharing the information because the smoothie tastes great (if you like spinach and pineapple, that is).

Pineapple Spinach Smoothie

Take a chilled 6 oz. can of pineapple juice, put into blender. Add a handful of washed, chilled spinach, and blend until smooth. Tastes delicious and is loaded with calcium, protein, and lots of other goodies.

Variation: take a can of chilled pineapple chunks and add spinach in a blender until thick. Add juice of pineapple to a consistency that you can drink. Drink a large glassful and lay down. The migraine should go away or at least lessen. That is an old remedy and I don’t know if anyone has ever heard of it or not.

Vegetarian Protein Shake Recipe

In a blender, combine the following:

2 bananas
1 tsp of bee pollen
1-2 Tbs of honey, or sweeten to taste
1/2 whole lemon — rind, seeds, and all
6 walnuts
Strawberries, when available

Put all the above in 1/2 to 2 cup water, depending on how thin you like your drink. Then blend it all to the desired consistency.

Natural cures

Healthy Avocado Smoothie Recipe

1 medium or large ripe avocado
1 1/2 cup fresh pineapple
1 Tbs honey
1 1/2 cup orange juice
2 tsp lime juice (optional)
1/4 tsp coconut flavoring
2 ice cubes

Peel and slice avocado and pineapple into small chunks. Crush ice with the orange juice. Combine with rest of ingredients and puree in blender until smooth.

A Healthy Nut Milk Shake

If you’re a Dairy Queen fanatic, I understand the compulsion. It’s hard to beat a soft serve on a hot day or with a hot date.

Unfortunately, most desserts and snacks made with traditional, pasteurized dairy and sugar are anything but healthy for your body.

But don’t despair because I have a great alternative for you, an easy and delicious recipe:

Health Nut Milk Shake

3/4 cup almonds, soaked 2-8 hours or
3/4 cup cashews, soaked 1-2 hours

3 cups cold filtered water or apple juice

Optional flavorings:

1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla extract
2 Tbs raw carob powder
A few fresh berries
1 tsp ground cinnamon

In blender, combine nuts, dates and water or juice until smooth.

Break frozen banana into pieces, add to mixture and blend until smooth.

Add one or more optional flavors if desired.

Pour into glasses. Serves 4.
