Mango, Avocado and Spinach Smoothie

Mangos are full of vitamin C and beta-carotene. Avocados are rich in vitamin E, which has been shown to help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, while both spinach and chia seeds are full of iron and omega-3s.

  • 1/2 fresh mango
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup chilled low-fat plain yogurt or soya equivalent
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds (optional)
  • Honey to taste (optional)

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Makes one serving.

Blueberry, Banana and Almond Smoothie

Almonds are packed with protein and vitamin E. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants that help protect your brain cells from free-radicals (unpaired electrons), and also contain anthocyanins, powerful phytochemicals that boost brain function and help keep your heart healthy. Kale is full of chlorophyll, vitamin C and iron, and one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat.

  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 1½ cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup kale
  • 5 unsalted whole almonds
  • Honey to taste (optional)

Add a little green superfood powder, such as chlorophyll and spirulina for the extra nourishment. Enjoy!
