Uplifting and revitalizing smoothie

These past few weeks I've been experimenting more with adding seeds and fresh herbs to my smoothies. Just to give them that little extra flavour and provide you with more energy. In addition, fresh ginger is probably my new favourite ingredient. I've been adding it to all my smoothies lately. Its specific and warming flavour instantly wakes you up.

(6 glasses)

1 pineapple
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 cup of (frozen) spinach
1 inch of fresh ginger root
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1 tbsp of flax seeds
1-2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
Almond milk (unsweetened) or water

Clean the pineapple, grate the ginger and put all ingredients in a blender. Add almond milk or water. Blend blend blend. Done!

A good tip I got from a friend for when you're not in possession of a good blender is to put all your ingredients in a large bowl. With a simple hand blender you can mix all your ingredients into a smoothie. Super easy and probably less washing afterwards ☺

Smoothies like this can instantly cheer me up. It sounds quite silly, but they really make my day ☺

Do you like adding seeds or fresh herbs to your smoothies?
