Super Smoothies

Smoothies..

are such a delicious way to start your day with a healthy kick. Making a nutrient dense smoothie packed with superfoods makes it easy for you to know you are getting the good things in. Here are three of my favourite Super Smoothie recipes.

 

GREEN GODDESS

Serves 2

Add to the blender:

 

2 large kale leaves, or a large handful of kale, spinach, silverbeet, lettuce, or any green leaves

1 banana (I like to peel and freeze my bananas - this helps keep your smoothie nice and cold and is a great way to save bananas that are turning)

1 pear

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 tablespoon sunflower seeds

1/4 cup of cashew nuts or macadamia nuts

1 teaspoon of maca powder

1 teaspoon of a green superfood powder: chlorella/barleygrass/spirulina/wheatgrass to amp up your greens

2 teaspoon of coconut oil

1/2 cup of kefir (milk or water kefir - great for adding probiotics to your daily routine.. keeps your gut healthy!)

Then choose your liquid base and pour into the blender until the fluid reaches approximately a litre in the jug. You can use coconut water, just plain filtered water, kombucha, almond, soy, or your milk of choice. 

Blend on high for 30 seconds or until your smoothie is super smooth. Pour into your favourite mason jar and sprinkle some bee pollen on top for added nutrients
