This smoothie never fails to give me extra energy that stays with me throughout the day. The recipe fills two large glasses.
1/2 to 1 cup almond milk or water
1/2 cup cocoa water
2-3 cups frozen berries/fruits (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, mango etc.)
1 piece fresh fruit (banana/kiwi/pear etc.)
1/2 – 1 tsp grounded cinnamon (to keep up the blood sugar levels)
1/2 – 1 tbsp wheatgerm (optional)
1 fist of spinach/kale
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or another good quality oil)
Blend well together in the blender. Pour into a glass and sprinkle some bee pollen (you have to start slowly with a few grains and work yourself up to 1 tsp., note that some people are allergic to bee pollen), goji berries and chia seeds on top.
It is best to wait 15-30 minutes before you drink the smoothie as the goji berries and chia seeds will soften up. I always make two portions at a time and store half in the refrigerator until the next morning.
