It’s finally summer around here – we changed jackets for t-shirts (with no buttons – as requested by my 2 year old) and welly boots for sandals. Question remains though:  do I still bring an umbrella to work for those afternoon quick showers or do I risk getting soaked (as wet hen like my granny used to say). This is a tough one, especially when my bag is exceptionally heavy these days – full of important stuff (of course).

One thing that i always bring along though is my smoothie bottle. Filled with creamy, refreshing summer sweet liquid – it always finds its way around and into my tummy. Yum!  

What I love about smoothies, is that they are super versatile and let you play around with creaminess, sweetness and fruits. Plus they make a wonderful & healthy mid-morning snack – you know, for times when we are inappropriately hungry (like between breakfast and lunch time).

SUBSTITUTION IDEAS

Oat milk -> almond milk or homemade flax seeds milk (so good for the gut!)

Honey -> agave nectar or maple syrup (or other vegan friendly alternatives)

Banana -> 2 tbsp greek yogurt (heaping) – we prefer full fat Greek Yogurt

Add: Chia seeds, flax seeds, maca powder, spirulina mix, ice, banana or Greek Yogurt;

POWERFUL DAY (maca power smoothie infusion)

One thing that goes incredibly well with this smoothie is maca powder. I add maca to all my smoothies and juices as it gives me some extra boost of energy and vitality (much better than coffee). If you are new to maca powder, I suggest building up your way gradually – starting with as little as appropriate (tip of a teaspoon or half teaspoon per se). Then, build up the quantity until you & your body feel comfortable.

If you have little ones in the house, it’s best to consult with pediatrician before feeding them maca powder. As my 2 year old does not consume smoothies with maca, I add my portion once the smoothie has been divided into cups/bottles. That way everyone is happy.
