This is probably my favourite smoothie when I have an early start and don’t have time to prepare a more consistent breakfast. It contains red berries which are packed with antioxidants. I have also added Chia Seeds (great for digestion) and Maca powder to boost energy.

Place the following ingredients (organic preferably) in your blender :

  • a good handful of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
  • a generous spoon of goji berries (which are a great source of essential amino acids, minerals, vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E, linoleic acid, selenium, germanium, and more beta carotene than the common carrot)
  • a handful of  spinach
  • a banana
  • a quarter of lime or lemon
  • a medjool date (remove the fruit stone)
  • a big spoon of chia seeds
  • a small spoon of maca powder
  • a small spoon of cinnamon
  • a glass of almond milk

Optional : To make it more consistent, I also like to add a handful of pure porridge oats.

spring energyBlend well, sit back and enjoy this delicious breakfast smoothie which will keep you going until lunchtime.
