Recipe: Red Pepper Smoothie by Green Blender

Red Pepper Apple

Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 lemon - juiced
  • 1 tbsp hemp seed
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

If the zesty gingery taste of the Red Pepper Apple Smoothie doesn’t wake you up, the color certainly will. This bright orange smoothie is loaded with Vitamin C. In fact, peppers are one of the highest Vitamin C foods there is. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that aids in the development of scar tissue, blood vessels and cartilage.  C the change.
