You wanna be healthy and shit? Get out of this queue in Starbucks, head home and make a freaking delicious smoothie. And remember to put on a lid before you turn on the blender.
#1 ‘It couldn’t get more tropical than this’
- 1 grapefruit
- ½ of a fresh pineapple
- 1-2 cm of fresh ginger
Throw everything into a blender, add some water. Blend until smooth. This smoothie helps with swelling, excretion of toxins and accelerates digestion of protein&carbohydrates.
#2 ‘I’m greening right now.’ (horrible joke sorry not sorry)
- 1 apple
- a handful of fresh parsley
cm of fresh ginger
Add water. Blend it up. It contains so much vitamin C that it’s close to an overdosage.
#3 ‘Chia heaven’
handful of spinach
handful of kale
- 1 ripe mango
- 1 banana
tablespoon of chia seeds
Blend until smooth. Chia seeds are the great source of potassium, zinc, calcium, copper, omega-3&omega-6 fatty acids, PROTEIN! Just trust me, you’ll love it. Chia seeds make a smoothie thicker which means not getting hungry right after drinking it!
#4 ‘It ain’t sweet, but hey, it’s healthy, right?’
of a red bell pepper
teaspoon of flaxseed oil
pinch of salt&pepper
a cup of water
Blend. So much potassium. So much vitamin C. It helps with inflammations, it helps with everything. Drink it once in a while.
#5 ‘I really crave a chocolate bar right now’
of your choice – it can be almond, cow’s milk, oat, whatever you’d like!
tablespoons of cacao powder
dates (depends of how sweet you like it)
teaspoon of smooth peanut butter (you cannot go wrong with PB)
Blend, blend, blend. Enjoy your chocolate drink.
Give up on that Starbucks coffee, get yourself a smoothie, make your body happy. A portion of fiber a day, makes your body’s problems go away (I came up with this a second ago). ENJOY!
