My Go-To Smoothie

I absolutely love having smoothies in the morning! They give me so much energy that lasts throughout the day. It’s really good to have raw foods first thing in the morning for better digestion, detoxing and of course, lots of nutrients first up! Here's a really simple recipe of my 'go-to' smoothie! For those of you that are in freezing cold Victoria, Australia at the moment - so you don't get that "chill" after drinking a smoothie, try drinking it over half an hour or so and wear a warm dressing gown! And for those lucky people who are just coming up to Summer like in Europe or USA, then this is the smoothie for you! 

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Frozen Pineapple (or Mango is also delicious)
  • 1 Cup of Frozen Mixed Berries 
  • 1 Celery Stalk (no leaves)
  • 3-5 Mint Leaves (depending on how minty you like it)
  • 2 thin slices of Ginger (about the 2cm in diameter) 
  • 1x Medjool Date
  • 1x tspn of Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup of Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Cup of Spring Water
  • Superfood powders of choice - I sometimes like to add Maca, Acai, Vegan Protein powder or Turmeric

Method

  • Place all ingredients into a blender and mix
  • Add more water or almond milk to get your desired consistency

Tip - You can also add a green powder such as Vital Greens or Spirulina to this for extra nutrients, or even a cup of spinach, just make sure you blend the spinach with water in the blender first to break it down

 

love and light,
