So this is a bit long winded, here goes: cacao and hemp smoothie with lacuma, maca and fresh pumpkin spice with juniper apple on top.
I knowww! It sounds complicated and faffy but it’s not I promise.
I love using maca, we’ve featured it a lot lately so in won’t go I to that now. Lacuma is a fruit which has been used for its amazing health benefits for centuries by native people, mainly in South America and African cultures. It’s not a new thing! This is original health care. It’s full of antioxidants, B vitamins, adult and baby safe. Packed with vitamin A which is needed for many things including healthy cell regeneration (especially skin and eyes). Its very high fibre and naturally sweet but has a low GI. This is the type of ingredient you should be using as sweetener.
It’s October which means it’s nearly Christmas so I’m breaking out the pumpkin spice 😊🎄 (I’ll leave the annoying early Christmas talk for my personal page xx)
I love fresh herbs and spices. They jazz up your food without the added nasties, but also because most herbs and spices contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than fruits and vegetables. They reduce inflammation and lower blood sugar and blood triglyceride levels, aid in fat burning and provide manganese, iron and calcium. They’re also antimicrobial.
So there you go. Health care in a smoothie.
(Oh the apple was simply sprinkled in a little crushed up juniper berries I got from Tesco. Yes, it tasted like gin 🍸😁).
