First thing this morning (aka 10am) I went for my first run since coming home from uni a couple of weeks ago. 30 mins later, dripping with sweat, and walking home with one very tired out dog, I was majorly craving a big, delicious smoothie.
I wasn’t planning on creating a recipe for the blog, so just threw my smoothie staples into the blender and added some of my favourite superfood powders. However, it turned out to be one of the most delicious, milkshake-like smoothies I’d ever tasted so I couldn’t not share it with you guys.
Before we get onto the recipe, I thought I would share some of the reasons why I love adding Maca powder and Spirulina to my smoothie, so that when you’re enjoying its creamy yumminess, you can also rest assured that it is filling you with healthy goodness.
Maca powder‘s amazing benefits include: being rich in calcium and iron, increasing energy levels and being great at balancing your mood; whilst Spirulina is a great source of protein, iron and calcium.
Now… onto the recipe.
WARNING: this smoothie is so addictive, I had to make my second of the day to drink on the way to go bowling with Matt and my gorgeous little cousins. I hope you all had an awesome weekend, enjoy the recipe lovely people :).
