Super Summer Smoothie
I love making a variation of this smoothie during the hot summer days. Sawyer, my baby loves it too!
20 ounces of fresh organic apple juice
1 pint of berries (you choose, organic of course)
1 banana (try freezing it first)
2 teaspoons Spirulina or blue green algae
3 Tablespoons bee pollen
3 Tablespoons flax oil or coconut oil
1 Tablespoon lecithin
1/4 cup of freshly ground flax seed with a dash of cinnamon
Fill blender half full (about 20 ounces) with apple juice. Grind flax seeds with cinnamon in coffee grinder and add to blender. Add all other ingredients and blend on low until the mixture is moving smoothly. Then blend on high for two minutes until creamy.
Why is this smoothie super?
Because it is a high protein meal having both Spirulina and bee pollen, which are two of the highest quality sources of protein on the planet! They both have very long chain of amino acids that break down easily to single amino acids.
Flax seeds and berries provide five different types of fiber: cellulose, hemicellulose, gums, lignin, and fruit fiber. The lecithin and flax seed oil combine to cause the production of high density lipoproteins that are essential to carrying fats back to the liver.
