As a woman that suffers from Endometriosis, inflammation is something that I struggle with on a regular basis. This week I had my first flare up in months. That being said, because of my diet changes, I noticed that my pain levels were much more manageable than they’ve been in the past. This smoothie is my go to when I need antioxidants!
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
1-1.5 cup coconut milk
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries frozen
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 sliced banana fresh
1/4 cup fresh blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
1 tbsp coconut flakes
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp coconut flakes
Optional: 1/4 cup ice
1. Add the coconut milk, spinach, frozen berries, 1 tbsp of coconut flakes and 1 tbsp of chia seeds (optional: 1/4 cup ice) to a blender.
2. Blend till smooth. If the consistency is too thick add small amounts of coconut milk until desired texture is achieved.
3. Pour smoothie mix in bowl.
4. Top with sliced fresh banana, berries and 1 tsp of coconut flakes
