So, as you already may know, I've been working with Loving Earth, making recipes from their amazing products and then GIVING THEM ALL AWAY!
Not the used ones, that would be mean. Brand new packages of goodness headed straight to you!
And let me tell you - this next prize pack is huge and awesome and is giving me second thoughts about having to let it out of my sight and out of my mouth. Methinks a shopping trip is in order.
Anyhow, we've been having smoothies here every day lately - its fun to sit outside in the sunshine and get messy with a fruity drink packed with goodness and health. Bananas and strawberries are super-cheap at the moment and we've just been keeping on top of the load I buy every week. Farmers markets FTW!
Did I mention messy? You should see her at the end!
Cup skills are getting better too!
Anyway, if you want banana-berry smoothie goodness in your life, here's what I do:
(makes 1 serve)
1 large banana
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp flax seeds
1/4 milk of your choice (I use soy, almond or rice)
1-2 tablespoons yogurt of your choice
Blend like crazy until silky smooth.
I often use frozen berry blends, which are delicious and make the smoothie icy cold - and so do the bananas if you freeze them beforehand. Summer's going to be awesome!
If you're wondering what maqui powder is, it is considered the highest antioxidant berry on the planet, and is harvested from the Patagonian region of southern Chile. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years for a number of ailments and has a huge range of health benefits that the Loving Earth website outlines fabulously.
Don't forget to come back next Friday, September 7 for a brand-new recipe and the bumper giveaway! You WILL NOT want to miss it.
