There is more to this fancy smoothie

Overall smoothies are very easy to make and it is possible to find thousands of simple smoothie recipes on the internet…

Well on a sunny day like today I thought something sweet and fresh would be lovely. I decided to use a variety of interesting ingredients I found in the health food store I work in. In the end, I came up with a tasty but I admit rather fancy smoothie…

The full recipe can be seen here > Fancy Smoothie Recipe

The recipe is really easy and quick to make when you have all the ingredients ready.

Some of the ingredients

  • Inca berries. Excellent source of fibre, low in saturated fat and sodium.
  • Vanilla bean powder. For its aroma.
  • Raw mesquite powder. High protein and mineral content including magnesium, calcium or lysine. It has a sweet taste but a low glycaemic index (25) to help balance blood sugar levels.
  • Coconut cream. Rich and smooth for the texture.

All ingredients were certified organic.

Nutrition Tip of The Day

Even if this smoothie is rich and nutritious, a small glass is sufficient in terms of nutrients and energy-content. If you read my previous post (Eating Healthy While Traveling) you know that ‘moderation’ is a keyword in nutrition.

As I hate wasting food I decided to freeze the left overs to make ice-creams or ice-blocks. It will be perfect for other smoothies or similar recipes. Win win. No waste of food and next time we feel lazy or lack ingredients, we just have to open the freezer…
