Recipe: Red power smoothie

Happy monday! To start the week right, I'll share a new smoothie recipe with you. We had this smoothie after an early morning bootcamp session in wet grass and mud. So we really could use a vitamin bomb with extra protein.

What you need for two big glasses:
  • a handful of spinach leaves
  • juice from 2 oranges
  • juice from 1 grape fruit
  • 1 cup of cubed pinapple
  • 1 banana 
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt or skinny quark
  • 3 mint leaves
  • Hemp seeds (for topping)
Optional:
  • 1 scoop of Body & Fitshop Premium SuperFruit Mix
  • 1 scoop of Body & Fitshop  Premium Superfood Blend
What you do:
  1. Put everything, but the hemp seed, in a blender, with the spinach at the bottom and blend it until everything gets smooth.
  2. Check the thickness, if your smoothie is to thick, just add a bit of water and blend again.
  3. Put the smoothies in glasses and decorate it with the hemp seed.

Loose Leaf Teas from HEMA

HEMA has been selling loose leaf tea for a long time, but never in a cute package like this. So when I saw a blogpost about this tea on Belessa.nl, I had to get some myself! I had to look for it, because it wasn't in the tea and coffee section, but eventually I found it. I chose a package with these two flavors: Green Tea Pomegranate and Oolong Peach. It sure sounds tasty, doesn't it?

When we got home, I had to try it right away and I started with the Green Tea Pomegranate, I really like the taste! I don't drink my tea really strong and this tea is perfect for me. The next day I had family over, so I had to share my new tea. This time I chose the other one and that one is definitely my favorite! Oolong Peach tastes like fall. A perfect tea flavor to drink under a blanket and stare at my candles, lol! A set of two flavors costs € 5,-.

I also bought this cute tea infuser, which floats! Also at HEMA (€ 3,00).
