This breakfast smoothie is a great way to kick start your morning
It’s delicious and a great digestive support too.
Blend together the following ingredients:
- 1/2 pineapple
- 1 mango
- 1 punnet of strawberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp Udo's or flaxseed oil
- 1/4 tsp probiotic powder (available to buy at health food shops and online supplement distributors)
CNM recommends the use of organic ingredients.
You can switch the mango for a frozen banana (peel before freezing).
This nutritious breakfast smoothie has many health benefits including excellent digestive support from the pineapple which contains bromelain – an enzyme group that digests protein and has been shown to effectively reduce inflammation if taken between meals
The probiotic powder is beneficial for the immune system and GIT (gastrointestinal) health. The Udo’s or flax oil is high in omega 3, which can boost concentration and balance the nervous system. Strawberries are a delicious summer favourite, and are also a great antioxidant and high in vitamin C.
