Step by step recipe
Today we get creative with super-healthy green fruits and berries, as well as flower bee pollen.
First, let’s talk a little about the ingredients!
Green vegetables and fruits are proved to be very useful for our body. They contain a lot of vitamins and minerals, but few calories – so they are good for those on a diet. Bright and colorful green drinks invigorate and protect us not only from seasonal cold, but also from seasonal depression. Remember! Green fruits and berries contain a lot of vitamin K, and they are often sour, so if you have high acidity, be careful and see how it feels.
Then flower bee pollen is full of vitamins and microelements that support the activity of the heart and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. They protect our body from bacteria and viruses, have anti-sclerotic effect and increase immunity.
Flower bee pollen will help you with headaches, blood pressure problems, exhaustion and stress. Important: since the bee pollen is collected by bees, you should not use this product if you are allergic to bees or honey.
Now that we’ve known about useful properties of the ingredients, let’s finally start making our refreshing smoothie.
We will need:
– banana: 50 g;
– kiwi: 70 g;
(This is about half a big banana and 1 whole kiwi)
– nonfat buttermilk or yogurt: ¾ cup;
– a few gooseberries;
– 1 tsp (or tbsp, if you like it sweeter) of honey;
– 1 tsp of Siberian Bee Pollen;
– a pinch of cinnamon for decoration.
How to make?
Step 1. Peel the fruit. And do not forget to tail the gooseberry 🙂
Step 2. Pour the buttermilk into the blender, put there the sliced banana, kiwi, add a handful of gooseberries. Blend.
Step 3. Add honey and be pollen to the mixture, blend thoroughly again.
Step 4. Taste the smoothie to find out the balance of sweetness and sourness. If it is too sour, add more honey. If too sweet, more gooseberries.
Step 5. When the taste is balanced, pour it from the blender bowl into the prettiest bottle, cup or glass for smoothies. Add a beautiful serving if you want, and enjoy!
Life hack for those who are on a diet: you should take small sips of the smoothie, so you will feel you’re full sooner. This also works for other healthy desserts.
