About the Recipe
Fresh seasonal or frozens berries make a great start to anyone's day. Full of antioxidants they can cleanse the system of toxins accumulated in the body overnight, at the same time providing heaps of energy and brain power.
1 frozen banana
½ fresh orange - chilled
1 cup (200gms) cut Pineapple – chilled
1 cup of strawberries and/or other seasonal red berries of choice – washed and hulled
250mls coconut water - chilled
Place all the ingredients into your personal blender and blend until smooth. Serve in a glass and drink over a period of 15 minutes.
I take my time to ‘chew’ the liquid so that the enzymes and acids in my saliva thoroughly mix through the liquid, helping it to break down quickly.
This smoothie contains simple carbohydrates and with the addition of coconut water, it allows the body to prepare for elimination. Coconut water contains digestible carbohydrates in the form of simple fructose and energy and power restoring electrolytes.
Fruit enzymes have shown to support the activation of the elimination process.
