Wild morning to you! Mint is a great addition to any drink really, but I love mine especially (apart from mojito, obviously) in this refreshing strawberry smoothie. Yay for mint! Make this quick and simple smoothie, add a bit of oatmeal to it and the breakfast is ready!
I’ve been in love with mint for many a year. I’ve just never had balcony garden before (well, aart from Spain last year) and I’m so excited to take care of all the plants that grow here. My mint, among them. This is my mint. Isn’t it pretty? I’m not quite sure which type of mint it is, I just know it’s not peppermint. Did you know that there are over 600 species of mint around the world? It’s no wonder I don’t know.
but! Eat your mint! It’s good for you. It promotes digestion, it’ll make your mouth fresh and harmful bacteria-less, it can ease suffering during an allergy season. If you chew it, your memory should improve big time! (I have zero evidence about this one, but feel free to try it out and let me know).
Strawberries. Lovely, fragrant and photogenic. But buy them organic, or wash them properly with white vinegar and water to clean them of pesticides and other forms of dirt.
Apart from this, strawberries should make your body smile! They boost immune system, regulate blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and help regulate nervous system. Pretty cool, huh?
Bananas yum! Beautiful bananas that are pretty mush useful all around, whether for smoothies, bread, nice creams, desserts. I used to dislike bananas big time. It’s only been about a few years and I’m a big fan! I can’t imagine not having bananas in my diet.
Eat your bananas for stronger bones, for a natural relief during those days in the month. If you need help with weight loss, constipation, burns, eat a banana! Banana a day keeps a doctor at bay!
Seriously, it’s the simplest recipe, this strawberry smoothie. You need 4 basic ingredients:
- some mint
- a banana
- delicious strawberries
- a blender
