Blueberry Maca Smoothie
Happy FriYAY!!! Aside from the smoothie bowl recipe below, I thought share this image with you – a total sneak peak into my b’fast construction zone this morning… I love building smoothie bowls, using different toppings and ingredients each time so my body doesn’t become intolerant to my fav bits and pieces!
Today, I’m using cacao nibs for crunch. I ALWAYS incorporate toppings I can CHEW on to support digestion which begins in the mouth! 👄 I sprinkle a teaspoon of Maca powder which helps boost energy, endurance and stamina, and I add ‘true cinnamon’ sourced from certified organic growers. At culinary school I learnt most cinnamon sold in stores is ‘cassia bark’ cinnamon which is a thicker, more course product that doesn’t digest well in the body. ‘True’ cinnamon is better and easier to absorb, so if you’ve had issues in the past with cinnamon, give this type a go.
I’m topping it all off with my roasted, activated walnuts that are easier to digest because I want ALL the nutrients! Here’s the yummy recipe… Simply blend:
- ½ ripe pear
- ½ cup frozen blueberries
- 1 scoop of your favourite protein source (I use this 180 Nutrition vegan blend)
- 1 cup rice milk
- ½ small avocado
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- 1 teaspoon each: maca powder and cinnamon
- Extra milk if you prefer it runnier...
Top with things like cacao nibs, a dollop of nut butter, a handful of sunflower seeds – whatever you prefer and enjoy!💗
