Smoothie for Bone and Joint Health


So it has come to my attention that one of our subscribers is suffering from some bone related health issues, so I promised to find her a smoothie good for bones and joints.

Orange-Banana Smoothie


1 frozen banana
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
1 cup calcium-fortified orange juice


Mix in blender until smooth.


For a veggie alternative try this one:

1 cup green grapes
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1 frozen banana, sliced into chunks
1/2 cup pineapple chunks (packed in water not syrup)
1 cup calcium-fortified orange juice

spin the grapes, leaves and juice first to avoid lumps. Add everything else and blend until smooth. The yogurt hides the taste of the spinach :)

There are no fruits that contain vitamin D and the only veggie that does is a white mushroom so I suggest that unless you spend lots of time outdoors in the sun, pick up a bottle of vitamin d drops from your pharmacy or health food store. 1 drop a day is all you need and it’s tasteless :)
