Why spinach and chia seeds in a classic?
Spinach is a vegetable that is best consumed during the spring season and knowing the great benefits it provides for health, including it in a smoothie like this is a great option . Its flavor, along with the banana, adds density to the mix and makes it even more delicious in contrast to the strawberry.
Chia seeds and spinach are two great allies and mixing them is a very “gourmet” option. Together, they give a bitter and dry touch to the mixture that make it not so sweet and provide a much more interesting flavor. If you've never tried the seeds and don't feel familiar with them, they have a nutty flavor that pairs well with vegetables like spinach.
These two ingredients, apart from being seasonal ingredients , which when combined create an excellent flavor, have very good health properties that give even more reason to add them to the mix.
The banana is one of those fruits that can be used throughout the year and that wherever you add it, it will always add a good flavor to your recipe. It is characterized by a high content of carbohydrates and vitamins A, E and C. The banana is a great ally to calm stomach acidity and its components make it a very versatile fruit, that is, easy to combine and with a Very stable flavor that will always bring softness and body to any recipe.
It's not always a good time to add strawberries to your smoothie. Strawberry likes to sunbathe 😎 and, therefore, it is a recommended fruit during the spring and summer season. So if spring has arrived, you have a piece of banana on hand and, of course, a Mixy or Smooth blender in your kitchen, feel free to add strawberries! Strawberry is also a very healthy fruit. Regarding its properties, it stands out for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, as well as its ability to strengthen bones and regulate intestinal transit.
Spinach is a recommended vegetable during the seasons, autumn and spring. It is one of the most antioxidant foods that exist , as well as one of the richest vegetables in protein, vitamins (A, C and E), and minerals (iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium).
Chia seeds are magic. It seems impossible how something as small as a few seeds can provide so many health benefits. These contain a large dose of omega-3 , an essential fatty acid for the body with properties that help regulate both blood pressure and blood cholesterol.
From Mellerware we encourage you to try this delicious spring smoothie that, in addition to its special flavor, will make you start the day with more energy than ever.
