This is a mineral-rich smoothie with protein, fibre and omega fatty acids and a little warming cinnamon spice added now that Autumn is creeping in. Cinnamon has many health benefits including reducing spikes in blood sugar and lowering insulin resistance, as well as helping to balance your metabolism. Yellow plums are reputed to improve iron absorption, possibly due to their vitamin C content. Those with nut allergies can substitute the almond milk with tiger nut milk or any other non-dairy alternative.
All ingredients are organic, vegan and gluten-free, all measurements approximate.
1 Yellow Plum
2 Tbsps Golden Linseeds (lightly ground)
1 Heaped Tbsp Raw Hemp Seeds*
Glass of chilled Almond Milk (see here for how to make your own, it really is very easy and tastes much better than bought)
1 Medjool Date, pitted and chopped
A Dash of Cinnamon + another on top
Blend and enjoy.
