I wanted to share my latest smoothie obsession. It is THE PERFECT SUMMER SMOOTHIE! Strawberry Mint Power Smoothie. I think you’ll love it as much as me.
This is part of my upcoming 5-day Summer Detox recipe packet. I wanted to share it with you so you could see I take taste and detoxing seriously. You will be well-fed and happily satisfied throughout. And your body will be soaking up the nutrients in the food joyfully.
The bee pollen and Brazil nuts may be unusual ingredients for you. But I suggest you try them out because they contain high amounts of selenium and amino acids (from protein) that are needed for detoxing.
You can find Brazil nuts in bulk section of your grocery store (Whole Foods for sure) or even at Trader Joe’s. Go for the raw kind. Brazil nuts are packed full of selenium. 3-4 of these and you get your daily requirement of selenium.
Bee pollen will be in the refrigerated in the supplement section – probably near the probiotics. Bee pollen tastes a little like honey – no surprise there. It is loaded with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins. This is one of the ‘superfoods’ because a little bit 1 TEASPOON packs a lot of nutrient punch.
Strawberry Mint Power Smoothie
1 tsp bee pollen
1 cup frozen strawberries
1-2 mint leaves
2 handful baby spinach, kale or collards
2 tbsp chia seeds
3 Brazil nuts
