A good start of the day, is just a smoothie away

Hi there :),

As a food lover and as from now on a healthy food lover, I want to share my recipes with you.

Eating and drinking healthy can be very delicious if you only know how and the most important is why? Well, there are a lot of reasons why to drink a green smoothie.

- Greens are full of chlorophyll. Okay, what is chlorophyll? It purifies the blood, prevents tooth decay, helps detoxify the liver, cleanses internal organs, builds up red blood cell counts, enhances capillary function and last but not least support sex hormones.

- The green veggies help widen the blood vessels.
- Improved health in sleeping better, stronger nails and teeth.
- Highly nutritious. The greens in the smoothie are full of vitamins A, K, D and E, which are fat-soluble.
- 100% alkaline. Greens are the highest alkaline-forming foods
- Easy to digest.
- More fresh fruits and green veggies everyday.
- Filled with lots of fiber.
- Simple, quick and very easy to make.

So in my opinion reasons enough to start your day with a yummie smoothie.

Today on the menu: the Incognito Green Smoothie 

Pink layer
- 1 spoon flax seed*
- 1 banana 
- 1 hand of frozen red fruits
- 1/2 cup soy milk

Green layer
- 1/2 green apple
- hand of mint leafs 
- frozen spinach
- 1/3 cup water 

Top decoration
- few nuts
- flax seed
- mint leaf

* Flax seed is a super food, why? It's high in most of the B1 and 2 vitamins, magnesium and maganese. But there's more.. It's also rich in omega-3 and 6, antioxidants, lignans and fiber. In addition it's very low in cholesterol and sodium. 

Simple, quick and very easy instructions:
Cut the banana and apple in small pieces before putting in the blender. Then blend per layer until it's smooth and poor it into a nice glass. Next step is to sit back, relax and ENJOY :)!

If you have any feedback please let me know. Look forward to hear what you think of the smoothie. 

Stay healthy, drink clean..

  1. Where can I buy flax seeds in Amsterdam?

    1. Hi Chu Sita,

      Flax seed can be bought in every supermarket for example the Albert Heijn. Look for it in the bio department and you'll find a bag of 400 gram which will cost around €1,85.

      Good luck and let me know how your smoothie tasted :).
