Super Nourishing “All Day” Smoothie

By Peace Ravenwood

Of all the wonderful smoothie recipes out there I simply LOVE the green ones the most!
I spend most of the day just eating meals in a glass, either a juice or smoothie – and this one really does set you up for sustained energy and super mood boosting lushness.

Ingredients:
Serves 2

6 small ripe (spotty) bananas – use frozen if you like
1 packed cup of spinach
1/2 avocado
1 cup cashew (or other nut milk) milk
1 or 2 cups water
1 Tbsp Green Powder mix – your favourite

Garnish:
1 tsp shelled hemp seeds
1 tsp bee pollen *optional

Place all the ingredient in the blender – apart from the hemp seeds and pollen, which you will sprinkle on top to garnish, and process until creamy smooth – enjoy, knowing your day just got AWESOME!

Full of nutrients, essential fats, sugars and proteins, what more could you ask for – this is a
scrummy balanced meal.
Here’s why this is my daily staple:

Bananas are my ‘go to’ fruit of choice, full of potassium and tryptophan (that lovely mood booster) and slow release fructose that powers my day.
Spinach to give us bone health – just 1 cup provides all the calcium and Vitamin K we need (and then some)
Avocado delivers awesome fats for our brains and nervous system along with Vitamin E and C – anti-inflammatory goodness
Add in creamy cashew milk and oh boy you have such an amazing meal – creamy, magnesium rich, mood enhancing and oh so healthy for the heart!
Hemp and Bee Pollen pack in so many off the scale elements and uber proteins.
