berry bombshell smoothie

berry-bombshell

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.

Serves 2

Prep time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

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)

berry-1000

Method:

1. Blend all ingredients together until thick and creamy.
2. Top with shredded coconut and sliced strawberries.
3. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
