Buzz into spring with "Bee" Well Smoothie Recipe
Spring means it's time to shake up your morning routine. Nothing starts a day off better than a glass of natural goodness. Abigail's current favorite is full of micro-nutrients and protein to last all morning.
Inspired by one if its ingredients - bee pollen - Abigail's "Bee" Well Smoothie is a mix of:
- Bee pollen (about 2 tablespoons)
- Organic spinach (a big handful)
- Organic Blueberries (use frozen ones for best results)
- Avocado (one)
- Pineapple (use frozen for best results)
- Pea protein (one scoop)
- Spring water
Abigail puts all of her dry ingredients into her blender, then adds spring water until the container is 3/4 full.
Why does she love bee pollen? "It's a great ingredient for me to talk with my kids about nature and connect them with the magic of bees. Like did you know that bees are the only insect in the world that make food that humans can eat? or that a bee visits 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey?"
According to Ryan Raman at Healthline, "Bee pollen has gained traction in the health community because it’s loaded with nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, lipids and over 250 active substances. In fact, the Federal Ministry of Health in Germany recognizes bee pollen as a medicine. Many studies have examined the health effects of bee pollen and found promising results."
