Starting the day with a nutrient dense smoothie is a fun and stress-free way to sneak more whole foods into your diet!
If you’re looking to shift your habits towards more healthy choices – or get back on track when you’ve fallen off the wagon – this is one simple strategy that’s easy to adopt.
Packed with protein and alkaline encouraging ingredients, this creamy summery smoothie is plentiful in vitamins and minerals that are easy for your body to assimilate.
If you want to incorporate even more of your favourite breakfast ingredients, you can add a quarter to half an avocado for extra omegas, 2 tablespoons of nut butter or a quarter cup of coconut yoghurt. Blueberries can also be used instead of raspberries or strawberries, and you can top with granola!
1/3 cup buckwheat groats, soaked in filtered water for 30 minutes or over night
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup filtered water, or as needed for desired consistency
1/2 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup cucumber, fresh or frozen
1/2 inch piece ginger
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp hemp seeds (or flax, or chia seeds)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Drain buckwheat and rinse well.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until very smooth.
Poor into a glass and enjoy!
