For this recipe you will be blending dragon fruit, frozen blackberries, organic unsweetened coconut milk, and grass-fed vanilla whey protein powder. The combination of the whey protein and coconut milk offers a nice creamy consistency to the smoothie, which pairs well with the slight tartness of the blackberries. On a health note, by including the whey protein powder into your daily smoothie you’re allowing your body to promote an optimal intake of proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Simply put, your body will have an easier time absorbing all of the nutrients not only from the whey protein but from the dragon fruit and blackberries.
Once you’ve blended these ingredients together, you have the option of topping off your smoothie with local bee pollen and organic ground ginger. The color combination of the ginger and bee pollen not only offers a beautiful contrast to the vibrant pink tons of the smoothie, but there’s that added bonus of increased nutrient intake. I only recently discovered this, but did you know local bee pollen contains nearly all the nutrients that are required by the human body? It’s no wonder that bee pollen is a superfood!
