Smoothie Saturday #11 - Plum Fit
A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet". Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.
Today is the eleventh "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.
In this recipe the plum is the feature ingredient.
PLUMS - have a high content of phytonutrients called neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid - which are powerful antioxidants. Plums are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber & potassium. It is said that plums help prevent heart disease, cancer (specifically colon cancer), macular degeneration, arthritis and much more!
(again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).
1 to 2 plums (depending on the size) (washed & pitted)
1/2 banana (peeled)
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 tablespoon pecans
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup kefir (or yogurt)
1/4 cup water (if it is too thick)
Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the pecans & 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.
