BASIL & BLUEBERRY ALMOND MILK SMOOTHIE
For print-friendly version, click the PRINT button at the end of the post
This is great for a quick breakfast. The basil is a key ingredient so, weird as its inclusion may sound, don't be tempted to skip it. It's also worth keeping a batch of chopped bananas in the freezer so that you can whip this up whenever you feel like it. (Peel and chop each of your bananas into three or four pieces, seperate them out on a tray to freeze them initially and, after an hour or two, transfer them to a zip lock bag. Flat freezing them first ensures they won't stick together when you bag them up.)
1 banana, frozen
250g frozen blueberries
5 basil leaves
1 handful of fresh spinach leaves
2 tsp tahini
2 tsp almond butter
1 tbsp linseeds
almond milk to loosen (make your own – see previous recipe post)
Put all the ingredients into a blend and mix until smooth, adding more or less almond milk as required.
'SMOOTHIE' NA ALMOND NA GATAS, BASIL & BLUEBERRY
1. Hatiin sa apat na hiwa ang buong saging at ilagay sa freezer para maging frozen (gawin pa lamang ito ng maaga para kapag handa nang gawin ang smoothie na saging).
2. Kapag gawin na ang smoothie o shake paghalu-haluin lahat nang mga sangkap sa liquidiser para madurog at maging malapot.
3. Kung masyadong malapot patakan nang almond milk para maging katamtaman ang lapot.
