Packed full of potassium, magnesium, antioxidants, fiber, probiotics and gut-loving ingredients, this smoothie is absolutely perfect for anyone who needs to ‘start again’ after a heavy night, a few too many ‘cheat days’, or who simply wants to boost their health and wellbeing. You can’t re-wind, but you can re-set.
Serve as a breakfast or afternoon snack, and keep the recipe handy for those morning-after-the-night-before moments! (aka a hangover). Also works perfectly for anyone who takes part in a lot of physical exercise or training, as the potassium and healthy fats and carbs help to keep electrolyte levels balanced, and muscles working optimally. Add a scoop of hemp protein powder for extra plant based power.
