Its time for a green smoothie which is not green:) Today’s breakfast is a love potion for your body – in bright red.
Beetroot offers a high concentration of Betain and stimulates the liver. Your body will be able to more easily detox from all those toxins. The minerals in pineapple help to fight hyperacidity and basil has an antibacterial effect, in case you caught some mean cold while partying.

Green Smoothies do not always have to be green. Depending on what you throw into your mixer you can end up with some interesting colours. Blueberries and Beetroots will make this smoothie turn out a very bright bloody red. Yes, vegans are mean hunters – poor little beetroots and blueberries better hide from us:)

I have to admit I have been in kind of a hibernation, just hanging in there, waiting for nicer, warmer days to come. You have to keep in mind, sleeping is a real energy guzzler. During your night’s sleep you spend nearly 50% of your base metabolic calories!
But now spring is in the air, my spirits are up again and I am back to fill up those empty batteries with healthy delicious food. It is time to switch from warm comfort food to healthy green vitamin bombs for a perfect start into the day and as a prep for summer and bikini time (you never can start too early). It is Green Smoothie Time!

I always have been a big fan of blueberries. As a child I loved to eat the wild bilberries. Not only do they taste delicious, their inside is a juicy blueish purple, which colors your tongue and lips and gives you a funny look ( it also stains your cloth, so the fun was over once Mum did see that:). Wild bilberries are hard to find but blueberries are easily available. Although you miss out on the freakish look ( they are white inside) they nonetheless do taste great and are very healthy. They make a perfect partner for a beautiful chia dessert!
