So I have been so depleted of energy lately, it was time to focus on some serious nutrition and something to give me a bit of energy, rather than the carb laden comfort food that I have been eating too much of, calorie dense, but that's just giving me more padding to carry around rather than giving me any get up and go..
I did a bit of research and came up with this recipe to get a decent amount of some superfoods into me in a tasty (if not very pretty) form. The picture is not mine, but the smoothie looks exactly the same....green..
Makes one large serving:
Big glass of almond milk (You could use soy, but I like the taste of almond milk)
small handfull of ice
1/2 mango (You could use a different fruit, some kind of berry perhaps, blueberries would be excellent as they are also superfoods)
1 tablespoon of ground hempseeds (i grind them in a spice grinder, they have the right ratio of omega 3 to 6)
1-2 teaspoon of spirulina (this makes it green)
I teaspoon of Maca powder
1 teaspoon of camu camu powder
1 teaspoon of bee pollen
put them all in a blender/smoothie maker, or even use a stick blender. zuzz until it is smooth and enjoy. It looks less than lovely, but it does taste nice and fruity and it is extremely
good for you.
these last four ingredients are the powerhouse, they don't have a lot of flavour, but they punch way above their weight in terms of nutrition.
I got all of the ingredients in the health food shop, in powder form, except for almond milk and hempseeds.
