Pick Me Up Smoothie

April 25, 2019

B-Vitamins are one of the prime nutrients needed to create energy and the Pick Me Up smoothie is not only a good source of B vitamins but, contains over 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C and 50% of the daily recommended intake of magnesium. These important nutrients help to boost immune function as well as support nervous system health.

Key Nutrients

Orange – helping to support immune function, if you feel like you are always run-down/unwell, vitamin C is a really important nutrient to boost immune health. It’s good to be aware that immune health starts in the gut!

Baby Spinach – leafy greens are an amazing source of antioxidants, vitamin C and minerals, in particular, magnesium, the nutrient essential for supporting nervous system health.

Peanut Butter – full of healthy monounsaturated fats and a good source of energising B-vitamins. I always recommend buying nut butter that is 100% nuts.

Tips

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug.

Find your Ingredients

Almond or coconut milk - long life milks aisle or fridge

Peanut butter - spreads/health food aisle and I recommend choosing a brand that is 100% nuts (I love Pics or Mayvers).
