Best way to get your fruits and veggies in without a doubt is the humble smoothie. Not only is it a great way to get your 5 a day but also its QUICK so the perfect Busy Girl breakfast/lunch.
Anyway, I’ve been on a bit of a smoothie cleanse since the 2016 so I’ve been experimenting with a few different varieties and I’ve found a great combo – red cabbage and raspberry.
Seriously. It looks as amazing as it tastes.
Why Is Red Cabbage So Good?
Red cabbage is an amazing source of vitamin C and just 1 cup has 56% of the recommended daily intake. It also has vitamin A and K. It’s also a great source of L-glutamine which promotes digestive and brain health, muscle growth, athletic performance as well as helping to fight cancer and reducing high blood pressure.
Red Cabbage and Raspberry Smoothie – The Recipe – Makes One
1/2 cup of shredded red cabbage
1/2 a banana (frozen is best)
1/4 cup of raspberries
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
Ginger* (to taste)
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (optional)
Just bung it in your blender and blitz. If it’s too thick for you, add more liquid.
