Day 2: Summer calls: Pink smoothie recipe!

Hello my beautiful friends,

On warm summer days I always prefer to have a fresh smoothie for breakfast, so lately I’ve been enjoying myself in the kitchen trying different smoothie combos. By now I believe that I have mastered my pink smoothie combination and I’m sharing my – all natural – favorite recipe with you. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Half banana
  • 4 strawberries
  • 1 slice of beet
  • 1 slice of eggplant
  • 1 small slice of fresh ginger
  • 1 tb spoon of Awaking Buda from Iswari
  • Coconut water to taste

Topping:

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Coconut
  • Linseeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Goji berries

 

Directions:

  • Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth.
  • Top the smoothie with your favorite superfoods. Enjoy!

 

Tip: * For a sweeter smoothie use coconut water instead of water, otherwise water or almond milk will also be good replacements.

Here are a few reasons to chug this down, from a nutritional standpoint:

Eggplant: Great source of fiber, potassium and vitamins B1 and B6.

Ginger: Lowers blood sugars, has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces muscle pain and soreness.

Beet: Improves athletic performance by lowering blood pressure and increasing blood flow. Cleanses the liver, has anti-inflammatory properties and it’s a great source of iron.

Strawberries – High in antioxidants, rich source of vitamin C, facilitate digestion, the fiber and potassium in strawberries support heart health.
