My Favourite Detox Smoothie | Il Frullato Disintossicante Di Meri

My Favourite Detox Smoothie:

Today I am going to share with you another recipe with persimmons, here in California their season is almost over and I used the last ones I had in my kitchen, to make this fresh and nourishing smoothie. I combined the super sweet taste of persimmons with the strong taste of turmeric. Turmeric has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to fight infections and inflammations, turmeric is also a very potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals.

Banana and Cacao Smoothie | Frullato di Banana e Cacao

Banana and Cacao Smoothie :

Now that the weather is getting colder I prefer to nourish myself with cozy and sweet meals like my Warm Berry Porridge. But sometimes I wake up later than usual and I have to prepare a quick breakfast before running to work or to school. I simply love this banana and cacao smoothie because it has a very “chocolatey” taste, sometimes I even prepare it in the afternoon when I need a quick and healthy snack. I added also some almond butter which is a wonderful source of plant-based protein and vitamin E, that will make your skin glow.

Cinnamon Cashew Milk | Latte di Anacardi alla Cannella

Cinnamon Cashew Milk: 

Cashew milk is my favourite plant-based milk and I like to use it basically everywhere. I add it to my morning smoothie, to my healthy and vegan sweet treats or to my porridge. This recipe is super tasty and very easy to prepare as you don’t have to drain it like classic almond milk. Cashew nuts are really good for you as they have a very low Glycemic Index and they are a super good source of copper and magnesium.

Pre-Workout Smoothie | Frullato Pre-Allenamento

Pre-workout Smoothie :

 

I really enjoy a good workout early in the morning. I usually go for a spin or pilates class or for a jog in the park, it makes me feel very good and energised for the entire day. In winter I normally prepare a good porridge before my workout but since the weather has been so nice I switch to fresh and easy smoothies. For this smoothie I added spinach as it is rich in iron, vitamin K, vitamin A, calcium and potassium. Spinach can really improve the quality of our blood and our vitality.

My Favorite Smoothie | Il mio Frullato Preferito

My favorite smoothie :

 

I know I have been quiet for the past two weeks but I went back home for Easter and I couldn’t cook as much as I wanted too. I came back to London  a few days ago, and I moved to a new flat, which is simply perfect! My new kitchen is much better than the old one and today I finally started to cook again.

The recipe that I am sharing with you is very simple, you can prepare it in the morning and have it on the way to the office or to school.  I like to eat my smoothies with a spoon rather than drinking it but you can add a little bit of water to my recipe and it becomes immediately more liquid.

This is seriously my favorite fast and easy smoothie, I used pineapple, which is a really good source of vitamins C and A. In addition a cup of pineapple contains calcium, magnesium, manganese and potassium.

The Perfect Breakfast Smoothie | Il Frullato Perfetto

The perfect breakfast smoothie :

I love smoothies, I have mine everyday for breakfast with different fresh and organic ingredients. I personally think that fruits like banana or mango can really make your smoothies outragously delicious. Normally I also add some home made granola (the recipe will be posted soon) or some quinoa flakes. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is made with a spoon of spirulina powder, spirulina it’s a real superfood. It is naturally rich in protein : 60 grams of protein in 100 gr of Spirulina powder, more than half a pound of chicken breast!!! Spirulina also contains calcium, magnesium , potassium , vitamin B and iron.
