This fresh-tasting smoothie is a great way to start the day.
My Strawberry and Lime smoothie contains a good source of protein from hydrolysed collagen peptides and healthy fats from avocado and nut butter, plus vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants from fruit.
1 cup (150g) fresh strawberries, (if using frozen reduce the ice)
1 sml or 1/2 lge banana(s)
1 cup (250ml) coconut milk, (from a carton) or use a nut milk
1 Tbsp almond butter/spread, or cashew butter if preferred
1 Tbsp collagen peptides unflavoured (grass-fed)
2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp vanilla extract (organic)
1 tsp maple syrup (100%)
1 cup ice cubes
Add all the above ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until you reach a smooth and creamy texture. Add a little extra coconut milk if you would prefer a thinner consistency.
Pour into a glass and serve.
