Why a cabbage smoothie?

We are HUGE fans of putting leafy greens in smoothies. Leafy greens aid in digestion with the added fiber, and are packed with protein (among many other nutrients)!

Cabbage is no different, but its extra amounts of vitamin C and K make it truly unique.

Being a cruciferous leafy green, cabbage has been linked with being able to reduce inflammation—even chronic inflammation. It’s loaded with antioxidants that help to fight for the good of your body!

    Yes I made this, but might not be advisable if you have cold sores in your mouth

  2. Me says:

    there is a huge difference between protein in say spinach and that in cabbage but you infer they are the same. Doubt that > Google it…

    Doubt you’ll post this on your site >> integrity, transparency is clearly not your strong point when you inflate the protein content of cabbage. Do better!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      We never claimed nor inferred that spinach and cabbage have the same protein content; all leafy greens contain some amount of protein, which is what the article says. The protein content of this particular smoothie is stated clearly in the nutrition facts, and that will be different for every smoothie. That’s why we include the nutrition facts with our recipes, for folks who want to keep track of their macros. So sorry this blog post confused you! 🙂

    I love this recipe! My kids will guzzle it down too, lol! The only question I have is if there’s a good substitute for the flaxseed oil? I haven’t actually put that in because I never buy it, ha!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Allison,

      If you are not a fan of flax seed oil you can totally swap it for coconut oil instead!

      Hope that helps 🙂
