CLEANSING SMOOTHIE WITH PSYLLIUM

BY Ceres Organics

Ready in 10 minutes | Serves 2


This cleansing smoothie is a great way to use up your fruit at the end of the week.

The banana and cashew butter make a great base for a thick, creamy smoothie. Use frozen banana for an even thicker smoothie.

Coconut oil gives this smoothie its delicious tropical flavour and adds a dose of fat that will help you to feel full for longer. The addition of green grapes, golden kiwifruit and Manuka honey will all add sweetness, not to mention vitamins and minerals. Kiwifruit is packed with vitamin C as well as dietary fibre, to assist in the gentle cleansing of your digestive system.

Psyllium husk is also fantastic for your digestive tract, it is essentially a broom for your insides! It aids in thickening the smoothie as it absorbs water, so be mindful to drink plenty of water when taking psyllium.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon

1 cup warm water

1 cup spinach leaves

1 banana

1 golden kiwifruit

1 tablespoon Organic Cashew Butter

½ cup green grapes

1 tablespoon Organic Psyllium Husk

Method

Dissolve coconut oil in warm water. Set aside.

Combine remaining ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

Add in coconut oil-water mixture and combine. (Add more water for a thinner consistency, if desired.)

Note: Drink straight away as the psyllium husk will thicken the smoothie the longer it sits and the fruit will oxidise.
