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.

Strawberry & Coconut Smoothie | Frullato di Fragole e Cocco

Strawberry & Coconut Smoothie:

Now that I moved to California and I don’t have to fight the cold English weather anymore, I like to start my day with a fresh and nourishing smoothie. In my smoothies I try to combine different ingredients and I always make sure to add a good source of healthy fats like coconuot yogurt. For this smoothie I used frozen strawberries but you can use also fresh strawberries and add 2 ice cubes. Strawberries are naturally rich in nutrients, antioxidants and phytochemicals that may help the body to prevent the effects of ageing, diabetes and high blood pressure.

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.

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.
