Refreshing Cooling Summer Smoothie
So with Sun beaming down, we all can not be more than happy.
I mean, we really do not have any objections… (well apart from the seasonal allergies)
From my perspective that is a pretty good deal, in exchange for beautiful rays of sunshine.
In this heat it is only natural to want to keep “cool” as possible 😉
Enter the recipe…
Perfect for those that train during the summer season, play sports, participate in physical activities or are just health advocates . I mean caring for one’s wellbeing, has never been so simple not to mention delicious.
As stated above, the recipe contains 2 Secret Ingredients!!!
I mean you most likely have not thought to place these heat blasters, into one blender jug (and if you have, I applaud you having found this)

What was your guess on the secret ingredients… ?
Comment Below 🙂
- Place all ingredients to your blender jug in the following order. 1 cup of Water followed by washed Spinach, Mint , sliced Cucumber, peeled Kiwi, Dates, Chia Seeds, Flaxseed and Banana – using frozen bananas keeps all ingredients cool during blending process, ensuring that all nutrients are retained also smoothie will be ready to serve as it is chilled :) Now add the Coconut Water.
- Blend until all is well incorporated (blend this on medium to high speed as you want to avoid the smoothie heating due to the friction of the blade & motor).
- Once all the smoothie is ready, serve and enjoy. Alternatively take it with you, (I personally use this as my post workout shake and therefore take it with me in a flask that keeps it cool for up to 12 hours – not that I need it cool for that long.)
Can be store for up to 1 day but best enjoyed immediately.
