This smoothie is is the King and Queen of Healthy Smoothies. It’s definitely not insta-worthy, but its worth goes way beyond insta! Try this recipe…your body with thank you!
1 Frozen Banana
1/2 cup Frozen Organic Berries (choose organic where possible – berries are generally heavily sprayed crops and so have high levels of pesticides)
1 cup Soy Milk (NON GM or Organic)
3 dates (for extra fibre)
1 heaped tsp Ground Turmeric (powerful anti-inflammatory properties)
1/4 tsp black pepper (increases absorption of Curcumin – the active compound in turmeric – by 2000%)
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon (lowers blood sugar and a powerful antioxidant – antioxidants destroy free radicals)
1 cup Baby Spinach (again, choose organic where possible)
1 tsp Nut Butter (my preference is macadamia nut butter)
1 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel (the edible one and not the one you put on your skin. Loaded with micronutrients and great for digestion!)
Blend all ingredients together in a powerful blender.
