Fine, I will put your mind at ease...
This is not an invitation to drink any drinks, but my latest Summer Smoothie. An amazing and refreshing smoothie, delicious and filling, and a welcome boost on those mornings when it is well and truly required.
Because my original recipe includes FULL-SPECTRUM Plant-based protein (COMPLETE protein), Essential Fatty Ac ids, Zero-added sugar, and a very low sugar content due to carefully chosen seasonal fruits and antioxidant-rich berries (GL: 14).
This smoothie is also extremely rich in Manganese, rich in Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper. It is also a great source of Omega-3s, Vitamin C, E, Calcium, Iron, Potassium and Zinc.
It is also ideal for a Ketogenic or Paleo Diet.
Because you can add your favourite Green Powder* to the recipe, the nutritional values are not definite! You will have a higher Minerals and Vitamins intake, and supply your body with a tsunami of antioxidants.
Go on, drink it irresponsibly!
