Welcome back to the third and final part of our smoothie introductory course. We thought we would finish with a bang and spread some chocolaty love.
I need to let you all in on a secret that we found out from last week’s smoothie experience. If you have bananas in your recipe that by all means use fresh ones. If you have bananas on the turn then just peel them, cover them and stick them in the freezer. They really are a smoothie revelation.
So this week it’s all about people fleeing from or embracing the Olympics. We thought a good way to energise would be with our carob shake. As some of you have feedback and haven’t got most of the kitchen appliances needed for these recipes we added a weekly recommendation. We have tried a number of a juicers and love the new Magimix Duo Plus XL. It’s a truly brilliant way to extract juice, mixing smoothies and pressing citrus fruit. So let’s get blitzing and blending…
3 Apples, juiced
2 tbsp dates
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp carob powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Juice the apples and cut the dates. Add the tahini, carob powder and cinnamon.
Feel Good Benefits
Contains at least 25% of the RDA for not only Iron and calcium. It also helps top up your Vitamin C and E intake for the day ahead.
Anthony Robbins wrote that you should “sell your car” if you still don’t own a juicer. So make it happen and set it up as a morning ritual after your yoga practice. It will keep you hydrated and provide you with a feeling of well being all day.
Keep these smoothie mantras beside on your kitchen fridge:
