Steven’s Favourite Fruit Smoothies

in

When creating your morning smoothie, use combinations of fruits that absorb well together. Here are two of Steven's favourites!

Harvest Smoothie

Orange smoothie in a glass with a blue and white straw,

This smoothie is full of Vitamin D and calcium.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1/2 a pear or apple
  • 1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup of dates

Pulverize all ingredients in a high speed blender.

You can freeze the leftovers for later!

Tropical Smoothie

A light orange smoothie in a glass cup with a blue and white straw.

This is a good source of Vitamin C and iron that tastes great! The Vitamin C will help your body absorb the iron and the hit of protein (bee pollen) will keep you going until lunch!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 cup of any of these fruits: papaya, strawberry, kiwi or mango
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of bee pollen

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well.
