- 2 teaspoons of Spirulina powder
- 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
- 2 teaspoons of local bee pollen
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 lemon (peeled and remove seeds)
- 2 apples
- handful of spinach
- 2 cups of cold filtered water
- a few broccoli florets
Spirulina is so nutritious. If you haven’t tried it yet. I totally recommend you do. Spirulina has more protein per weight than any meat or soybeans. It has tons of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Spirulina has a little bit of a nutty flavor, sometimes I can’t even taste it. When you do try it for the first time, just put a spoon in your smoothie and see how you your body reacts to it. Some people like taking spirulina in capsule form, I like mine in powder form.
Flax seeds are excellent source omega 3 fatty acids. PLus they are a great way to add fiber to your diet.
Local Bee Pollen is my favorite new addition to my smoothies. I got mine from Whole Foods market in the refrigerated section. Bee Pollen is loaded with vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes and co-enzymes, and 14 fatty acids. Bee pollen increases endurance in sports, improve asthma and allergies and has many more benefits.
When I made this smoothie this morning, I had a few little broccoli florets left so I threw them in last minute. Don’t put too many in your smoothie! Lately, I’ve been adding lots of lemons to my smoothies and juices. I love them. Makes them tart and the apples make it sweet.
This made two big smoothies. I hope you enjoy it. I did! Cheers!
P.S. I always use organic vegetables and fruits and recommend that you do too. Lately, I have been pleased to find that some of the grocery stores are offering reasonably priced organic produce. Here is a list of the “Clean 15.” The “Clean 15” is a list of fruits and vegetables reported by the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit research organization, as having lowest levels of pesticides because they naturally absorb fewer chemicals. They are mushrooms, watermelon, grapefruit, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, eggplant, asparagus,sweet peas,cabbage,avocado, pineapple, onions and corn. The “Dirty Dozen” are the ones that you should avoid unless they are organic. They are apples, celery, sweet bell peppers, peaches, strawberries, nectarines (imported), grapes, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, blueberries, potatoes, and then they added green beans and kale greens. Eating produce that is grown conventionally is far better than not eating them at all.
