Smoothies are perfect for an energy boost at morning tea time – my blood sugar levels always seem to be dropping at this time of day, and a good smoothie really helps. Here’s one that we love to make… it’s delicious!
I start off most of my smoothies by grinding up raw almonds, pepitas, linseeds and dates – that makes the sweet milk they are based on. You can really add any frozen fruit, plus water, and some additional sweetener if needed. I usually add frozen banana to make it thick and creamy – (just peel them and freeze them whole in a plastic bag, and break them off as you need them). I also like to add tahini to make it creamier, and to add a calcium boost. (Of course, if you have a powerful machine like the Thermomix, you can grind up your own sesame seeds at the start if you’d rather, instead of adding tahini.)
