Health Smoothie Recipes with Raisins

About Raisins

Raisins are dried grapes.  Most the raisins consumed in the United States come from California.

Nutrition Benefits of Raisins

Raisins have been linked to benefits related to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, inflammation, acne, alzheimers, allergies, eye health, gout, and other health conditions.  A lot of this is from their antioxidant properties, in particular their high amount of polyphenols.  Many people are familiar that grapes (and raisins) contain resveratrol, which has been linked to various health benefits.  Resveratrol is a type of polyphenol antioxidant.

Smoothie Tips

We use raisins as one of our preferred natural sweeteners.  You can substitute raisins with dates or a sweetener of your choice.  Or if you find the recipe too sweet, you can leave them out.

Dates and raisins are both difficult for cheaper blenders because they are gooey.  If your blender is having too hard of a time with them, consider replacing them with a different natural sugar like coconut palm sugar.

We recommend using organic raisins since grapes are heavily sprayed and you eat the peel.
