If you liked my turmeric latte recipe you will be as obsessed with the smoothie version.
I actually just chose ingredients I had in my kitchen by colour and picked everything yellowish on a grey London day, threw it together and was totally blown away!
It has a lot of amazing health benefits; first and foremost as usual, turmeric’s anti-inflammatory powers. Mango, banana cashews and the almonds in the almond milk all have an incredible array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants leaving you full of energy. The cashews make it deliciously creamy bringing it to the perfect consistency.
If you want the same health benefits and the same feeling of energy without drinking a hot drink I really suggest you try this amazing recipe!!
1 handful cashews
1/2 tablespoon turmeric
1 cup of almond milk
Blend all ingredients together and enjoy! Banana and mango can be frozen for extra freshness!
There is a million possibilities to combine ingredients for green juices, but I especially love this one for it’s freshness. This is one of my favourite post-workout juices, because it gives you a lot of magnesium from the spinach which is important for your muscles and cucumber contains high amounts of hydration which is great after a sweaty gym session! Cucumbers also contain silica which contributes to the construction of connective tissue in bones, muscles etc. The apples and pears add some sweetness to it as well as goodness such as vitamins and anti-oxidants. If you want to add a tropical twist add some ripe pineapple and the result will be so amazing! A boost of energy to start your day right!
Makes 1 big glass
1 handful spinach
1/4 pineapple (optional)
Through all ingredients into your juicer et voilà.
This smoothie has been my latest obsession! I know green smoothies can be a little scary when changing your lifestyle because they look like they will taste like veggies or something, but the key is choosing the right ingredients and adding a fruity touch so that it will actually taste surprisingly well. This smoothie is so amazing because it's a classic simple green smoothie with a zingy twist through the added lemongrass.
Lemongrass actually has some amazing health benefits as it's very rich in essential vitamins and minerals which help boost your immune system! It's main component is lemonal which is anti fungal and great for detoxing as it helps cleanse toxic wastes out of the body.
makes about two glasses:
1 handful of kale
1 stem of lemongrass
2 pitted dates
Blend together with a cup of water and enjoy! If you want it to be really cold, you can freeze the kale and the banana so it will be super refreshing and energising.
