Green summer smoothie

During Summer time it is important to keep our body hydrated! Smoothies and Juices are a great idea to hydrate with taste.
The important thing to remember to keep your juice/smoothie in balance is to add greens, veggies and no more that 2 fruits in it. This way you can ensure hydration, detoxification and slimming all in one glass.

So here is Self n’ Soul Fitness’ recommendation for this Summer!

– 1/2 frozen banana
– 1 cup baby spinach
– 1/2 cup strawberries
– 1 cup almond milk
– 1tsp Matcha tea

Those ingredients were chosen because of their high nutritional value. Let’s have a look on them.

Bananas
are full of potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6, nutrients that help replace your water levels. They also contain a big amount of protein and fibre that will keep you full for more time. The fact that they are frozen will give the sense of eating an ice cream.

Spinach
is full of vitamin K and it is considered to be one of the best vegetarian protein source. Spinach aids your detoxification and helps in building good stamina.

Strawberries
are full or calcium and iron. Berries in general are considered to be the best anti-inflammatory fruit family supporting your immune system and your bones.

Almond milk
is full of nutrients, especially vitamin E and protein. It protects our whole system and works as the liquid-hydrator we need.

Matcha Tea
is the purest form of green tea, full of antioxidants. It is an energy provider for at least 4 hours ahead of consumption thus the best alternative for coffee.
What is really important is the quality of your matcha tea. It is best to choose a brand that comes in a packed powder form.
We recommend Matcha Maiden Tea, the best quality coming from Japan. You can shop it online here.

Enjoy your Summer, Enjoy your Body!
