Berries and Fairies Smoothie

Makes: 1 large glass

Make time: 3 mins Equip­ment re­quired: high-speed blender

1 frozen ba­nana, cut into chunks

¼ cup frozen blue­ber­ries

¼ cup frozen black­cur­rants

1 tbsp dried mul­ber­ries

1 tbsp al­mond but­ter

Small splash of vanilla ex­tract

Splash of fresh lemon juice

Hand­ful of ice

²⁄³ cup fil­tered water

1 tsp bee pollen (op­tional)

2 nas­tur­tium or pansy flow­ers (op­tional)

This de­li­cious im­mune-boost­ing smoothie is sweet­ened with one of the best whole­food sweet­en­ers around – mul­ber­ries. This smoothie makes a great all-round break­fast drink, as it con­tains omega-3 fats from the black­cur­rants as well as good amounts of iron, pro­tein and vi­ta­min C – all com­bined with the in­cred­i­ble im­mune-boost­ing prop­er­ties of bee pollen.

Place all in­gre­di­ents ex­cept bee pollen and flow­ers in a high-speed blender and blend un­til com­pletely smooth, about 1 minute. Pour into a glass and gar­nish with bee pollen and flow­ers.

A quar­ter of a cup of mul­ber­ries will give you more than your daily re­quire­ment of vi­ta­min C, as well as about a quar­ter of your daily iron needs.
