Trying something new this morning with my green mood-boosting smoothie. This smoothie is rich in healthy fats that are essential for the growth and development of nervous tissue, while nutmeg promotes the production of serotonin so I get more of the "feel-good" factor in my body for longer. Spirulina adds protein and lots of antioxidants, making this smoothie a winner on all counts!
250ml light coconut milk (3 teaspoons coconut milk powder mixed with 250ml water) or 250ml almond milk
1/4 teaspoon of spirulina
Cinnamon to taste
Nutmeg to taste
Half to 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
Put all ingredients together in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth.

Fabulous dark greens in this smoothie provide an outstanding amount of antioxidants, folate, iron. Ginger is a great cleanser and aids digestion.
2 large cucumbers (peeled if not organic)
Big fistful of kale
Big fistful of sweet pea sprouts
4/5 stalks celery
1/2 big broccoli stems
1 pear or green apple (optional)
1-inch piece of ginger (or less)
Other optional greens we love: romaine, parsley, spinach and dandelion.
Tip: A squeeze of lemon Juice in your green juice will increase iron absorption in the body (iron needs Vitamin C for better absorption).

Here’s a healthy version of the famous Piña Colada (sans alcohol). The greens add lots of Folate and antioxidants. Bananas are one of the best sources of Potassium and the coconut Milk is often hailed as anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. The main saturated fat that it contains, lauric acid, is also found in mother's milk and has been shown to promote brain development and bone health.
1 cup loosely packed kale or baby spinach
1/2 cup pineapple pieces
1/2 cup light coconut milk or coconut water (the water is practically fat free)
