As a busy Mom, sometimes I struggle to find the time to eat during the day. When I’m running low on time I make myself a smoothie to give me a boost of energy and get some good nutrients into the system. One of my favourites is a berry smoothie. It is packed full of antioxidants from the raspberries & blueberries and filling from the seeds that I add to it.
Follow the recipe below for a very filling smoothie, perfect for on the go:
Ingredients: A cup of blueberries A cup of raspberries 2 - 4 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds 1 cup of milk - I use oat milk A couple of dates, to sweeten, if required Method: Pop everything into a blender Leave to soak for 10-15 minutes Blitz Pour into a glass and enjoy :)
You can use any fruit but I think berries are great as they are tasty. You can also buy frozen berries so that you always have them to hand. The pumpkin seeds provide a great source of Manganese, Creatine & Tryptophan; the sesame & sunflower seeds are also a great source of Creatine & Trytophan too.
