I finally did my physiology exam yesterday, preparing for it has been hard and it drained me both mentally and physically even though I loved everything I was learning. So now it's time to recharge my batteries, gain some of the weight I lost from too much uni stress and just relax and focus on myself and everything I love!!!
So let's start with the prettiest purple smoothie recipe. Purple is my favourite colour but this is not the only reason why I love this smoothie...It's really tasty, it's fresh and has proteins, antioxidants and good fats. It's a great way to start your day! Most of all, it's very quick to make which is key for me and why I love smoothies so much, you just pop all the ingredients in your blender (best money I ever spent) and in one minute you're ready to go.
1 handful almonds
1 cup brown rice milk or soy milk ( make sure they are unsweetened, I use Rude Health Brown Rice Milk)
1 cup frozen berries (mine was a mix of blueberries and strawberries)
1 probiotic capsule (open it up and pour the powder in )
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp chia seeds
1tbsp coconut oil ( I use Lucy Bee)
1 date ( put in hot water while you prepare the other ingredients, this way it'll be softer and plumper, remember to remove the seed!)
OPTIONAL: add 1 handful of spinach or kale for extra calcium and magnesium.
As I said before, all you have to do is add the ingredients to the blender and whizz for a minute. Enjoy!
