Ingredients:

 

Smoothie:

1 frozen banana

1 handful of frozen berries

1 frozen chunk of pink pitaya (optional)

1 handful of sunflower sprouts

1 handful of pea shoots

1 handful of baby spinach

2tbsp of coconut yoghurt (or milk)

1/2 cup of coconut water

1tbsp chia seeds

1 tablespoon of linseed oil.

 

Topping:

1tbsp hemp seeds

1tbsp chia seeds

1tbsp sunflower seeds

2tbsp coconut flakes

1tsp linseed oil

1tbsp coconut yoghurt

 

Method:

Put all the smoothie ingredients into a blender, I add chia seeds last so they don’t stick to the bottom. Sometimes it pays to leave it for a bit for some ingredients to melt a little so it blends nice and easy. I usually do one blitz to chop things up a bit then wait a minute or so and blitz until nice and smooth.

Pour smoothie out into a bowl and top with the toppings. Pretty much any toppings are delicious, I selected these because, for me, they are easy to digest.

This is my new fav smoothie bowl recipe (also very delicious without the toppings as a smoothie), so nutrient dense and so delicious!!

It’s got banana for potassium and some lovely prebiotics to feed the probiotics which come in the form of coconut yoghurt. Linseed oil helping deliver a nice does of omega-3’s and help with things going along nice and smoothly at the other end. Fibre and a punch of nutrients from all the lovely seeds. The fresh sprouts for protein and enzymes to help your body do what it’s made to. Plus you can’t get fresher than chopping them from your own little stash and adding them straight in. Got your greens in the form of spinach and all the lovely antioxidants from the berries and pitaya along with their numerous vitamins and minerals. Some electrolytes to help you absorb water better throughout the day from the coconut water.. I could literally write a whole essay about how healthy this smoothie is but I will stop there.

Hope you enjoy!!
