This smoothie was meant to be a beautiful rich pink colour but I just couldn’t help myself, at the last minute I had to add some spinach and now it’s packed with an extra boost of nutrients! It’s so easy to add a handful of spinach to a smoothie and voila, you’ve got a big serving of greens with hardly any effort.
When people talk to me about wanting to eat healthier, the two most common things I hear are that they’re too busy or don’t know how to cook. I completely understand this feeling, so the first thing I always suggest is to incorporate fresh vegetable juices and smoothies into their diet. They’re delicious, very quick to make and as long as you know how to turn on a blender or juicer, you’re good to go.
This smoothie is topped with lots of delicious goodies such as bee pollen, buckwheats groats and chia seeds. I love these ingredients so I always have them in my cupboard but I understand that for a lot of people these might not be regular ingredients, plus they are a little expensive, so it might not be a priority for you to spend your money on these things. If that’s the case then just make the smoothie without the toppings, it’ s still absolutely delicious. Or if you’re into all the latest super food crazes like me, go nuts! Enjoy
