Eating seasonally is one of the best ways to ensure that your fruit and vegetables taste delicious.
Summer fruits for todays smoothies include antioxidant rich berries, fibre filled bananas and delicious figs which are also full of antioxidants and calcium, iron and magnesium.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants helps your body fight free radicals. Free radicals can damage the cells in your body which is why we like to promote antioxidant rich food in your diet. Antioxidants can help to neutralize these free radicals, minimising the damage they may cause to our beautiful bodies.
I love this smoothie pre or post work out, depending on if i need energy to perform (pre-work out) or if it's more about recovery for my muscles (post-workout). If i have this after my yoga morning session for example, it also acts as my breakfast, then I'll have a mid morning snack on around 30g of mixed nuts to keep me going until lunchtime.
