Smoothie Saturday #7 - Raspberry, Pineapple & Vanilla
A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet". Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.
Today is the seventh "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.
In this recipe the important ingredient is the Pineapple.
Pineapple - is a very good source of vitamin C and minerals such as manganese. In my opinion the healthiest component of the pineapple is "Bromelain" which is an enzyme that aids your digestion and also helps prevent & relieve any inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, acute sinusitis and gout. (again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).
1/3 banana (peeled)
1/4 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup pineapple chunks (see above "link" on how to cut a whole pineapple)
1 tablespoons walnuts
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup kefir (or yogurt)
1/4 cup water (or more if it is too thick)
Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the walnuts & flax seeds. Now place the remaining ingredients (including the processed seeds & nuts from the first step) into the larger "NutriBullet" container and use the "smoothie" blade. Blend for about 30 seconds (or until fully blended).
IMPORTANT: All of my smoothie recipes on this blog are measured for the "NutriBullet" and are a single serving - if you have a different kind of blender that has a larger capacity then you may increase the amount of ingredients according to your desired smoothie needs. The ingredients in this recipe measure close to the max line of the NutriBullet.
