Totally Tropical Tonic - Smoothie Recipe

As I’ve been bed ridden all week with a blasted chest infection, I’ve been trying my hardest to get my daily smoothie intake to help fight this bloody illness.

So whether you’re feeling under the weather like me, in need of a tropical pick me up or would just like to try a new smoothie recipe, here is my Totally Tropical Tonic, packed full of Vitamin C, for when you’re feeling really icky, just like me! (I’m such a poet)

You will need:

A handful of chopped Pineapple – High in Vitamin C

A handful of chopped Mango - High in Vitamin C and Vitamin A

A handful of Spinach – High in Vitamin K and Iron

A selection of nuts and seeds (I went with pine nuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds)

50 ml of Orange juice

The juice of half a lemon

A teaspoon of honey

A tea spoon of Chia seeds – Great for fibre and Protein!

Oh and a blender (I use a Nutribullet).

I start with putting the pine nuts, pumpkin, sunflower and chia seeds in the Nutribullet and blending them together to make a light fluffy paste consistency. I then add a splash of water and the honey to the paste, then mix together.

The next is step is very easy, just add the remaining ingredients to the Nutribullet and then fill with water up to the max line (if you are using another blender, add as much water as you see fit. The more water you add, the more of a juice consistency will be achieved, rather than a smoothie).

Then blend away.

And there you go! You will be left with a beautiful tangy, flavourfull, juicey smoothie, packed full of goodness to help rid you of all your woes! 

I hope you enjoyed this little smoothie receipe! If you try it, please tweet me the outcome! I'd love to see them! (Add me on Twitter here: Kirsty_LDN)
