This is a great way to start your day. It is quick, nourishing and delectable. Most importantly is has a lot of easily absorbed calcium and potassium.
- 1 banana, the riper the sweeter
- 1 T tahini, or you can use freshly ground toasted sesame seeds
- 2 T peanut butter
- 1 t vanilla essence
- 1 T honey (or you can use a sweet apple)
- ½ c herbal iced tea (or water)
- 1 c yogurt or keffir or both
- 1 t cinnamon, ground
- 1 T flax seeds, freshly ground
Blend ingredients together. It is also nice to add ice at the end to make it into more of a thicker colder smoothie.
Bananas have a lot of potassium and make you feel good. Yogurt or keffir is great for your digestive system. Tahini has tons of easily absorbed calcium as well as antioxidant power. Cinnamon helps your circulatory system and to regulate blood sugar levels. Flax seeds (they have to be freshly ground as the oils in them oxidate easily) are full of omega 3 fatty acids and are great for your brain function (and much more affordable than flax seed oil or fish oil supplements). And of course the tahini, peanuts and yogurt are great protein. The iced tea can be made with different herbs according to your personal needs in bulk and stored in the fridge.
