Raspberries are low in calories and saturated fats and are a rich source of dietary fibre and anti-oxidants such as vitamin C, E and A. The anti-cancer benefits of raspberries have long been attributed to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. A well known sweetener alternative is derived from raspberries, some of you might know it, it’s called xylitol, a low-calorie sugar substitute, which I’ve used many times in my cooking.
3 ripe bananas
100g frozen raspberries
5 organic dates
1 tablespoon of raspberry powder
1 tablespoon of strawberry powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon flax meal (see how to make below)
1 tablespoon wheatgrass
2 tablespoons gogi berries
How to Make Flax Meal
In a dry grinder (or I use a vitamix) add 5 tablespoons flax seeds and whizz until powdered, this makes the flax meal. Store the ground flax in an airtight container for use in other dishes. Make sure you keep the flax meal in a fridge as it will go rancid if left in the warm.
Whizz all the ingredients in a high speed blender or smoothie maker. Sit in the sunshine, barefoot, feel the grass between your toes, close you eyes and enjoy the goodness feeding your body and soul.
