Today I am sharing with you my favorite summer herbal smoothie. Comment below and let me know 1) how you liked it and 2) what we should call this tasty beverage!
Combine the below ingredients in a blender, blend and enjoy! Garnish with mint or lemon balm if desired.
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup pineapple (I use organic frozen chunks)
- 2 sprigs fresh spearmint
- 2 sprigs fresh lemon balm
- 1 handful spinach
- 2 Tbsp collagen protein powder
Lemon balm and spearmint are both incredibly easy to grow. Like most plants in the mint family, they LOVE sun and need regular watering. This smoothie is cooling and delicious and offers digestive, mood and antimicrobial support. And it's packed with phytonutrients, healthy fats and protein to nourish your body and stabilize your blood sugar.
So enjoy one of these on the next hot day and comment below to let us know what you think!
