Celebrate the flavours of summer with this delicious peach, raspberry and goldenberry smoothie! This blushing smoothie is sweet, tangy and refreshing with savoury notes coming from two ‘hidden’ vegetables: radish and carrot. It makes a super energising breakfast or a refreshing nutrient-packed drink, ideal to help you recharge after a long day or a good workout. It is also an excellent way to get more fruit and veg into your diet.
Being rich in fruit and vegetables, this smoothie is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and fibre, so helps keep your immune and digestive system in tiptop condition.
I love supplementing mine with Goldenberry and Chia Powerblend, which is a delicious mix of dried goldenberries and ground chia seeds. It tastes zingy and slightly like citrus tropical fruit. It is high in fibre, protein, iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin A and the B vitamins, so excellent for boosting good health in a range of systems including that of the healthy eyes, immune system, cardiovascular and excretory systems.
To enrich the protein content, I love to add some protein powder (soya bean and pea varieties work well), but if you have run out, you can always substitute with ground flaxseed or hemp seeds.
