It can be very challenging to enjoy smoothies during the cooler months. I’ll be the first to admit that a warm, nourishing bowl of porridge soothes my souls and keeps me grounded for the day. However, on occasion, I do still like to enjoy a smoothie as smoothies truly are one of the best ways to give our body an easily digested dose of nutrients. This winter green smoothie is one I’ve been enjoying recently either for breakfast or an afternoon snack. It contains ginger which is great to support circulation, cinnamon which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, apple which is high in fibre, kale with is also high with fibre as well as vitamin A, C, K, folate and flaxseed oil which is omega-3 fatty acids.
- 1 apple
- 3 kale leaves, de-steamed
- 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp flaxseed oil
- 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 serving vanilla protein powder or collagen powder
- 1 cup almond/coconut/rice milk
- ½ cup water
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend together until smooth. Enjoy for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
