So, let’s weep up a smoothie that lowers cholesterol on this page.
Using a cholesterol lowering smoothie is a nice way to use diet as a fighting weapon for high cholesterol problems. You need to lower your LDL-cholesterol, the so-called ‘bad cholesterol’ to protect your heart.
If your LDL-cholesterol is raised, your Total cholesterol will be raised too.
So, if you reduce your LDL-cholesterol level, you reduce your total cholesterol which is something we all want.
This cholesterol lowering smoothie recipe will be oat-based. One reason is; oats do contain a nice soluble fiber called beta-glucan.
You need soluble fiber like beta glucan in foods to help you deal with cholesterol problems.
Soluble fiber in foods helps form a gel with the aid of water. This gel acts as a cholesterol mop. It binds to the cholesterol delivered to the bowel from the liver, mops it up and escorts the cholesterol out with our faeces.
For this oats smoothie for cholesterol reduction, we’ll be getting a whopping 13 gm of soluble fiber. Not bad!
So, what do we need for this cholesterol reducing smoothie recipe?
Rolled Oats x quarter cup
Ground flaxseeds x 5 tbs (50 gm)
Strawberries x 200 gm (8 good size strawberries)
Mango x three-quarter of a big mango
Oat milk x half a cup
How To Make the Oats Cholesterol Lowering Smoothie
This is as simple as it gets.
Pour in the rolled oats, and the ground flaxseeds into the Nutribullet cup.
Add the strawberries into the cup. Then add the sliced mango pieces.
Now pour in the oat milk and blitz the content in the Nutribullet container.
You can add more oat milk if the smoothie turns out to be too thick.
Make it to the consistency you are happy with.
Now enjoy your cholesterol busting smoothie. Have it about 4 times a week along with good exercise and you will see your bad cholesterol begin to decline.
