Holistic Saturdays: Strawberry Red Pepper Smoothie (V, GF)

Strawberry Red Pepper Smoothie

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 1 apple
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 lemon, peeled
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Water

Blend until smooth.

One medium-sized red bell pepper provides 169% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of Vitamin C, making it one of the richest dietary sources of this essential nutrient. One cup of strawberries has 149% RDA of Vitamin C.

So add more bell pepper and/or strawberries if you like. Cayenne pepper gives it a kick and opens your sinuses. This is a great smoothie to drink if you have a cold. Let me know how you liked it!

    1. Thank you! It is a yummy smoothie. I apologize for the delay in approving your comment. It was stuck in my spam folder.

  1. I am going to the store today and was going to pick up these ingredients.Some of these things I keep on hand. After looking at this recipe I noticed you have many smoothie recipes so I am going to try to make the blackberry smoothie and the carrot smoothie also. I’ll let you know. They sound and look amazing.
