Spirulinach Smoothie

Spirulina, Spinach, banana, Coconut yoghurt, coconut water, flax, hemp seeds.

The base of this smoothie is my homemade coconut yoghurt and I added fresh Spinach and Spirulina powder to boost its nutrition value.

Banana for its sweetness and great texture added with coconut water. Not any coconut water… careful with this kind of product, it can be fake or filled with undesirable ingredients. I use Dr. Goerg. This is the best packaged coconut water I’ve tasted.

All these combined with flax and hemp seeds for extra fiber and protein.

Add all ingredients in the blender (or blend with a hand immersion mixer) and enjoy!

Spiruline, épinards, banane, yaourt à la noix de coco, eau de coco, lin, graines de chanvre.

La base de ce smoothie est mon yaourt à la noix de coco fait maison et j’ai ajouté des épinards frais et de la poudre de spiruline pour augmenter sa valeur nutritive.

La banane pour sa douceur et sa grande texture ajoutée à l’eau de coco. Pas n’importe quelle eau de coco … attention à ce type de produit, il peut être faux ou rempli d’ingrédients indésirables. J’utilise Dr. Goerg. C’est la meilleure eau de coco emballée que j’ai goûté.

Tout cela combiné avec des graines de lin et de chanvre pour plus de fibres et de protéines.

Mettre tous les ingrédients dans le mélangeur (ou mélanger avec un mélangeur à immersion manuelle) et dégustez!

Santé!

Almond Gingerbread Smoothie

Almond milk, almond butter, banana, gingerbread spice mix.

This is a lighter version of my gingerbread smoothie. See here for the other one!

The almond milk gives a thinner feel in the mouth and is lighter in terms of calories as opposed to my other gingerbread smoothie which is made with full fat coconut milk.

It does contain half a day’s recommended intake of vitamin E and a significant amount of calcium.

This version is great for a light breakfast or a light snack.

To make, use

350ml of homemade unsweetened almond milk

15ml of almond butter

1 banana

2 to 5ml of gingerbread spice mix

Put all in a blender and mix. Enjoy!

Gingerbread Smoothie

Banana, oatmeal, coconut milk, gingerbread spice mix, water.

For me, Holiday season goes hand in hand with gingerbread spices. It makes me think of gingerbread houses that I use to make with mom or the neighbours.

One of the alternative that I appreciate is this super simple gingerbread Smoothie.

In your blender, pour

200ml of full fat coconut milk

200ml of water

1 banana

30-40g of already made oatmeal (optional)

10ml (or more if you like!) of gingerbread spice mix *

And blend until smooth. Enjoy!
