RECIPE: Sweet Smoothie

This is my go-to smoothie recipe that keeps me comfortably full right up to lunchtime. Do feel free to be as creative as you wish – but remember to avoid adding refined fats/oils, sugars or salt.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint filtered water (more if needed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 heaped tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 heaped tablespoon raw hemp seeds (shelled)
  • Handful of goji berries
  • 1–2 handfuls of blueberries or blackberries (can be frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic turmeric powder or 1 fresh turmeric root
  • 2cm (0.5in) ginger root, peeled
  • Few drops of organic Stevia to sweeten, if required

Optional

  • 3 brazil nuts
  • 1 heaped tablespoon maca powder (can be an acquired taste – build up slowly)
  • 1 grapefruit, chopped (to be avoided if on anti-hypertensive medication)
  • 1 tablespoon acerola cherry powder
  • 1 teaspoon açaí powder
  • 1 tablespoon baobab powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 500ml (17fl oz) coconut water

As I lift heavy weights as part of my anti-ageing strategy, I also add a scoop of protein powder to my smoothies. If you would like to do the same, look for good-quality products that are clearly marked as being vegan. Some of the best are also “raw vegan”. I constantly research and experiment with different ones, so keep an eye on JayneyGoddard.org to see which ones I recommend.
