Tropical Smoothie

You don’t need to be living in the tropics to enjoy this. Just blend up and dream that you are lying on the beach in a hammock sipping your tropical smoothie! Not only that but with the superfoods lucuma and maca you will be sure to feel great. Lucuma has been showing to have immune-boosting properties as well as supporting cardiovascular health. Maca is great for athletes as it increases stamina and endurance. It is also great to support mood and hormone imbalances.

Passionfruit and Lucuma Smoothie

I have an abundance (I mean serious abundance) of passionfruit in my garden at the moment. I have given heaps away but they just keep coming. So this morning as I picked some more off the vine after I had been for a run, I decided to open the fridge, freezer and pantry and see what I could come up with. This is the result and I love it. I hope you enjoy it too. You could also use less milk and make it into a thicker smoothie bowl. Lucuma is a natural sweetener, full of antioxidants, Iron, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin B and Fibre. It is also anti-inflammatory and an immune booster. Studies show that it is also a natural healer for wounds. A great addition to your breakfast or snack.

Orange Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are similar to smoothies but tend to be thicker, so they are ‘eaten’ rather than drunk. I love the addition of the summer fruits to this smoothie bowl. It gives it such a vibrant, natural orange colour. Lucuma is a natural sweetener, full of antioxidants, Iron, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin B and Fibre. It is also anti-inflammatory and an immune booster. Studies show that it is also a natural healer for wounds. A great addition to your breakfast or snack.
