Smoothies are great pick me ups. They’re easily absorbed by the body, delivering goodness almost directly to the cells, and can be a meal or a snack. Fill them with nutritious happiness and your body will be singing.
Ingredients – serves 1
½ a cucumber
½ a cup of fruit of low fructose fruit – kiwifruit, frozen blueberries, and/or papaya/paw paw.
2 heaped handfuls of spinach (I would advise sautéing this in a little coconut oil before blending to remove oxalates allowing for better digestion and therefore gut health)
Handful of basil
¼ of avocado or a dessert spoon of coconut oil
1 dessert spoon of hemp seeds
1 dessert spoon of natural nut butter
½ a tsp of cinnamon
½ a tsp of vanilla powder
1-2 cups of coconut water
Put all ingredients in a blender, combine well and serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt, cacao nibs, bee pollen and dried mulberries.
