Super healthy, detoxifying Banana & Pineapple smoothie

Bananasmoothie

This smoothie is packed with nutritious, detoxifying ingredients. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C, and together with avocado (if you choose to add it, of course) it is packed with powerful antioxidants – great for the skin! The flaxseed kicks it up a notch by adding Omega 3, protein, iron and magnesium.

This dairy free smoothie is the perfect pick-me-up to keep you going through the day.

(Serves 1)

Ingredients:

1 x frozen banana

1 handful of frozen pineapple

1/4 cucumber

1 handful of spinach

1 x tablespoon of flax seed

Unsweetened almond milk – amount depends on how thick you like your smoothies

Optional:

Add 1/4 avocado, for extra goodness (it will also make it more creamy!)

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

 

Directions

Throw all the ingredients together into a blender, and blend away until smooth.

This one is real tasty. Peanut butter is my absolute favourite, so anything with peanut butter in is a win for me! It’s dairy free, healthy and keeps you full for a long time – an all round win?!
