Inspired by a delicious smoothie I had on a recent trip to Maui, I came up with this recipe. It taste so great, and is propped full of protein and vitamins. This smoothie will give you an energy kick!
Bee pollen is said to be one of the most complete foods out there. It contains more protein than most foods, free amino acids, vitamins and folic acids. Due to its very high nutritional content it’s a great natural energizer.
That being said, if you’re not used to consuming bee pollen, it’s smart to start with a smaller portion (for example 1/4 tsp) and then gradually increase. This is in case an allergic reaction occur.
Spirulina is also a great source of protein, amino acids, vitamins, omega 3-6-9 as well as other beneficial nutrients.
1 cup kale (about one handful)
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup mango (fresh or frozen works)
1 tbs spirulina
1 tbs bee pollen
1 cup almond milk (or other milk such as coconut milk)
Blend and enjoy 🙂
