Christmas Coloured Smoothie Recipe
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Packed into the colourful fiesta above is a handful of (iron clad) spinach, 1/4 of (healthy fats) avocado, one (potassium loaded) banana, 1/2 cup of (protein rich) almond milk, a dash of (sweetness) vanilla essence or honey. Blended, poured into a bowl, topped off with coconut yogurt and fresh strawberries.
Follow the formula below to make your own super easy smoothies all summer long.
Start with creamy fruit; banana or avocado work well.
Back it up with fruit or veg like strawberries, kiwifruit, pineapple, spinach
Add in desired flavour such as vanilla, lemon, tahini
And a dash of sweetness from dates or honey
Pump up the protein with seeds and nuts soaked overnight, nut butters, protein powders spirulina, or hemp powder - an excellent source of complete protein that’s high in omega 3, 6, (like your avocado) and fibre (like your kiwifruit)
Choose your liquid - almond, soy or coconut milk or water
Blend, pour into a bowl and top it off with a dollop of coconut or acidophilus yogurt, fresh berries and a healthy sense of gratitude
