Lime Smoothie Recipe

Lime Smoothie Recipe

Lime Smoothie


This smoothie is perfect as a healthy yet delicious option for picky eaters who normally reach for the sugary shop-bought varieties. The fibre in spinach, seeds, oats and lemons, together with the protein in the seeds help lower the uptake of sugar into the blood system, providing a nice slow releasing energy. It can easily be consumed as a stand-alone breakfast or afternoon snack. For an even more filling breakfast and increased protein intake add some pea protein powder.
Servings: 1 glass

Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 pitted date
  • 20 g quinoa soaked for 12 hours
  • 200 ml plant-based milk
  • 1 lime unwaxed, zest and juice

Instructions


  • 1. Blend the dry ingredients first as this will help grind the oats and seeds to a fine flour.
    2. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
    3. If using fresh banana but prefer cold, add a few ice cubes at the end and blend again.
    Note:
    * to make ‘quick’ fresh ‘nut butter’ mylk:
    Add 1-2 tablespoons raw almond or other nut butter (not peanut) to 250-500ml spring water (according to taste) and blend until smooth. Use mylk straight away or refrigerate 24hrs maximum, or freeze as ice cubes and use within one month; use frozen mylk cubes in smoothies. Nut butters are traditionally made with unsoaked nuts and have not been sprouted, so the enzyme inhibitors have not been removed. Many commercial brands are made with roasted nuts.
