One of my morning rituals after my workout is to drink a green post workout smoothie.
I drink it before eating or sometimes instead of food, if i feel full.
With this smoothie I know I’m covered for the day with all the fabulous nutrients my body needs.
I love trying new combos but if to be honest there are some ingredients that will forever stay my go to and a part of my smoothies.
Banana for example would always have a favorite place in my heart. I just love the texture it gives to the smoothie.
Spinach will also always find its way into my smoothies. Don’t laugh, but it really reminds me of Popeye each time I eat it 😉
Recently I started adding peppermint (!!) to my smoothies, and OMG! It’s amazing!
Peppermint in the morning smoothie will make you immediately smile, I promise 🙂 That’s what happened to me. It really adds freshness and vitality to everything.
Other than that peppermint is actually a wonderful herb. Here are some of the health benefits of peppermint:
- Colds and fever
- Irritable bowel syndrome
♥ Important to know ♥
Using peppermint is not recommended to: children, pregnant and nursing women, people with heartburn, people with obstruction of bile ducts, gallbladder inflammation, gallstones, liver problems, stomach acid deficiency.
My refreshing smoothie recipe:
1 frozen banana
2 celery sticks
1 green apple
5 leaves of peppermint
It is definitely my favorite! Enjoy!
