There weren't enough delicious low histamine smoothies out there for me. So as a follow-up to my previous low histamine smoothie recipe, I bring to you an antihistamine smoothie packed with blueberries, moringa, and cherries, among other antihistamine foods!
About this recipe
Helps Clear Histamine. Eating foods with antihistamine properties is one of the best ways to clear histamine naturally, and each of these ingredients plays a different role in staving off histamine toxicity. Check out the low histamine foods list for more info on which foods to keep in your diet if you're experiencing symptoms of histamine intolerance.
Calming on the Stomach. As you may have read in recent posts, I'm currently trying to heal from an ulcer, and drinking a smoothie with greens as one of my two daily meals has been part of that process.
Packed With Antihistamine Foods. I've formulated this particular recipe to help keep my stomach happy and balance out any lingering histamine from the previous meal, as the pea sprouts in this recipe contain DAO. All of the other ingredients are actively antihistamine foods (water notwithstanding!).
Cherries (Fresh or Frozen): these are the base of your smoothie, and they're a great source of antioxidants and antihistamine plant chemicals.
Frozen Blueberries: these bright berries are an antioxidant and antihistamine powerhouse! Making smoothies with frozen blueberries doesn't have to dilute their power, either. Just be sure to use organic, locally-sourced blueberries when possible.
Apple: a small apple is the best approach to this smoothie, but you could also use half of a large apple. Since the skins of the apples contain an abundance of histamine-fighting nutrients, I like to leave those on, but you can peel them off. I used a fuji apple because I like the balance of crisp and sweet, but you can use any variety.
Fresh Ginger: possibly the best-known low histamine spice, ginger is the sharp, mildly sweet root of a flower; it’s been used for thousands of years in beverages both sweet and savory.
Pea Sprouts: these sprouts are a vegan source of DAO, and add a mild grassy flavor tot the smoothie, so use sparingly.
Moringa: while you'll only use a bit of this, it adds a lot of extra antihistamine power.

Recipe notes & tips
Swapping Fruits. You can use equal amounts of any other berries in place of the cherries and blueberries, but be careful to balance out the flavor profiles of all the ingredients.
