Ok, so yesterday I posted a recipe for a healthy and yummy green drink. Now I know that some people just get turned off by any food that is green so I decided to share this smoothie recipe with you. This drink usually comes out reddish or purplish which might be more appealing to those with an aversion to green. You can tweak this recipe however you like by adding a little of this or a pinch of that.
High in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants this drink is just down right yummy and kid approved. It’s a great way to get nutritious food into your child with out them even knowing it (Just don’t let them see you making it). So, here is my basic recipe. ( Click on each of the links to find out the health benefits and PRECAUTIONS associated with some herbs).
4 Large Strawberries
1 handful or a 1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of pineapple juice
2 oz of carrot juice
1 handful of baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp of bee pollen
Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. (Serves 1 )
It’s ok to use frozen berries. I actually prefer to use them frozen because it makes the smoothie like a frozen drink. Try to stick with organic ingredients if at all possible. Strawberries are one of the heaviest pesticide sprayed crops of all.
Other additions may include:
A fresh or frozen banana
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
Different combination of berries
So bottoms up and enjoy!
