MEATLESS MONDAY : SUMMER BEAUTY SMOOTHIE

Since it is the first of September and fall is creeping on us, I will do my best to stretch summer just a little longer. So here's a very summery smoothie recipe to brighten up this Monday. I always crave warm drinks in the morning (no matter what time of the year it is)and therefore adding warming spice, such as cinnamon, to smoothies makes them easier to drink. Adding Maca powder makes this smoothie even healthier since it is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, and iron. It contains trace minerals including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese, tin, and silicon. It is also high in vitamins B1, B2, C, and E.

Summer Beauty Smoothie

1 cup coconut water 
1/2 cup blueberries 
1 cup sliced peaches 
1 Tbs. chopped mint 
1 1/2 Tbs. lime juice 
1 cup very ripe banana
1/2 tsp. cinnamon 
1/4 tsp. maca powder 
This recipe was originally published in Finnish at Sylvi Online Magazine.
