Wheat germ smoothie

I’m trying to come up with balanced smoothies for the days when my nausea is really bad. I just made this one for my hubby. It has an interesting nutty flavour thanks to the wheat germ.

Recipe:

  • 2 tbsp. wheat germ
  • 1 banana
  • 6 strawberries
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • water to the max line (or milk of your choice for a richer taste)

Toss ingredients in Nutribullet and process for a minute or until desired consistency.

Watermelon nutriblast

Today was yet another holiday I was unprepared for.  Sometimes the amount of holidays can be a real pain. Especially when the fetes end up being all night affairs. Last night there was a fete the went well into the wee hours of the morning. We  finally fell asleep around 3 a.m. utterly exhausted. Thankfully my trusty new Nutribullet meant that making breakfast was a snap.

Recipe:

  • 1-2 handfuls of cabbage
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 1/8 cup flaxseed
  • water

Toss ingredients in your tall cup and extract for about 30 seconds.

My nutriblast was a bit sour on account of the strawberries, so I think next time I’ll buy fresh strawberries and freeze them.
