I’ve been feeling a little under the weather recently and am suffering from post-Summer blues (if there’s such a thing). So I’ve decided to whip up something that’s immunity boosting, fruity and refreshing. Result? The Berry Bombshell smoothie – full of nutrients including vitamin C for immune function, anti-inflammatory omega-3 and antioxidants, magnesium for nerve function and muscle-building protein. Ideal for breakfast or as a nourishing snack. Bonus: It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free.
Prep time: 5 minutes
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup mixed frozen berries
1/2 papaya, chopped
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tray ice cubes
1 tbsp of raw honey (optional, but it does make it taste that little bit sweeter)
1. Blend all ingredients together until thick and creamy.
2. Top with shredded coconut and sliced strawberries.
3. Serve immediately.
