Here are your answers:

Cilantro Ginger
Apples Oranges
Tangerine Pineapple
Kale Swiss Chard
Celery Tomatoes

Parsnips Parsley

Of all these answers, you see that they are primarily fruits and vegetables. Fruits cleanse the body and vegetables build the body while also providing extra fiber that can decrease uric acid levels by binding with the uric acid to excrete it.  Many fruits are also high in vitamin C, which makes a direct influence on the uric acid, decreasing levels.

Smoothie Guidelines for You

How can you make a smoothie out of some of these fruits and vegetables and what are the guidelines? Take a look at them below.

  1. Strive for five or more fruits and vegetables in your smoothie. Some examples are:
    1. Orange, pineapple, dandelion greens, green powder mix, probiotics, and spinach
    2. Cantaloupe, pineapple, ginger, celery, kale, spinach, broccoli
    3. Blueberries, apple, spirulina, Swiss chard, avocado, coconut
    4. Apple, figs, kale, celery, spinach, mint, green powder mix


If you can get five servings of fruits and vegetables, this will boost your level of fruits and veggies up to about 9 per day, a level that exceeds what greater than 50% of the population is currently getting. You’ll feel much better, your body will operate much more efficiently, and you should have fewer gout attacks.

  1. Stay away from any food or beverage containing high fructose corn syrup. Never sweeten your smoothie with this fake sweetener, as it causes gout.
  2. Count your carbohydrates in the smoothie you are preparing. Leave the level of carbs down to 15 to 22 grams carbohydrates with a maximum of 30 grams. Anything exceeding this level might contribute to acceleration of gout and an exacerbation.

Keep a log of your smoothies and how often you have gout. You’ll find a direct connection with the amount of fruits and vegetables you have in your diet.
