Your new favorite midday smoothie!
A mango, pineapple, ginger, lucuma and almond milk smoothie, concocted by Newton Running Ambassador and Aubergine Restaurant Chef, Justin Cogley
In addition to satisfying your sweet tooth, lucuma is gluten-free and a source of antioxidants, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals necessary for bodily functions and of benefit to the immune system. When mixed with the other ingredients it makes for a great start to your day.
(2 large servings) plus extra
1 cup of peeled diced Mango (ripe!)
1 cup of peeled diced pineapple
2 peeled frozen bananas (I just keep them chopped up in a ziplock bag)
1 Tsp of Bee pollen
1 Tbsp lucuma powder
1 Tbsp diced ginger root
1 cup Almond milk
*Blend all in a blender and give it a try. Sometimes I will add a few ice cubes to chill it off more and thin it out.
“You can try your own smoothie combinations of course.. but this works for me. – get creative!” – Justin Cogley
