Superfood Banana & Spinach Smoothie

I often try and prep my smoothie ingredients the night before, so I can wake up, blend up and head out the door. However, this is one of my go-to recipes for when I haven’t managed to do that and I want something quick, easy and nutritious!

GreenSmoothie

I use the Breville Blend Active – so all I have to do is throw everything in, blend in the bottle, and screw on a lid when it’s done. For my liquid ingredients, the amounts are therefore variable and I’d adjust to your own preferences. My bottle holds 500ml, so this may help you.

1 Organic Banana

2 large handfuls of  Organic Spinach

Filtered/Glass Bottled Water (I use Highland Spring Water – drawn from organic land – in glass bottles to avoid plastic leaching and also the chemicals/hormones in tap water).

Half teaspoon Bart Organic Cinnamon Powder

1 tsp Organic Burst Maca powder (if you have never used maca before, start with a smaller amount and build up).

1 tsp  Organic Burst Wheatgrass Powder

2 tbsp ground flax.

Blend and go!

This smoothie is great for breakfast – it gives you the amazing immune system, energy boosting, skin cleansing properties of wheatgrass and maca, along with the protein and omega 3 rich flaxseeds. Lovely!

I recommend Organic Burst for the Maca & Wheatgrass, as it’s the brand I use and great quality.

Thanks for reading – have a great day!
