Sweet Red Pepper Smoothie… Bring Out The “Fruit” In Your Peppers

Posted by: Angela Leeds In: *LGS Daily Recipe|Drinks



We generally think of peppers as vegetables, but in fact, as a “botanical fruit”, they’re considered both vegetables and fruits. And if you have a super-sweet red, orange, or yellow pepper on hand, it’s no stretch at all to use them to make a deliciously sweet raw smoothie. Add a bit of honey and some fragrant cold-pressed coconut oil, and you’ve got a refreshing revitalizer that’s both rich in beta carotene and a metabolic stimulant (part of coconut oil’s claim to fame… hello weight loss).

The drink is just so pretty, as well. Who knew that peppers were destined to make such a delicious beverage? This is one you might fall in love with for everyday…


Recipe for: Sweet Red Pepper Smoothie

Bring Out The “Fruit” In Your Peppers

  • 1 heaping cup sweet ¬†red, yellow, or orange peppers (I used one long red, super-sweet red pepper)

  • spring water to 32 oz.

Blend everything together until smooth and drink up! [/private]
