Blueberry, Banana & Bee Pollen Smoothie Recipe
Simply blitz all the below ingredients in a blender until smooth and then adore the fabulous colour. My favourite kitchen smoothie maker is my Nutri Ninja. it's by far the best piece of kitchen equipment I've purchased and I use it at least once a day. It's great for smoothies, milkshakes and even making a super smooth batter in two seconds! I highly recommend this. It's super easy to clean too, just rinse out once done.
It is supposedly a complete food containing nearly all the nutrients humans need. Gram for gram it contains more protein than any other animal source. Bee pollen is full of vitamins including B-complex, folic acid, minerals, fatty acids and enzymes.
It is thought to be good for aiding digestion, improving skin, maintaining fertility, increasing energy levels, reducing certain allergies, strengthening the immune system, aiding weight loss, improving PMS, increasing physical stamina, soothing stomach problems and more and more.
It is possible to be allergic to it, so be careful if you try it. If you are allergic to honey, bees or bee stings then definitely steer clear.'
Have you ever heard of bee pollen? I'd recommend it for adding to smoothies, sprinkling on muesli and adding to energy balls. You only need a tiny bit so the upfront cost may seem quite large, but you only use a small amount at a time so it lasts ages.
Try Holland and Barrett or a health food store if you're wondering where to buy some.
