Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie – Let’s boost your iron!

Ok guys, I have a confession to make today. Not the easy one. After 10 months on a vegan diet my body is crying HELP! I miss iron so much that I have to get some strong supplement for 6 weeks. Argh. So what did I made wrong on that way to a ‘healthier me?’ Well, first I drink LOTS of coffee in the morning with my oatmeal and keep going up to lunchtime. Did you know that coffee decrease iron absorption by 50%-90%? Yep! so basically all that lovely iron loaded plant powered food I was eating in the morning was ‘useless’ for my body. Well, in term of iron absorption.Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie

Although I love animals I choose to switch back to my clean food recipes for a while with 80% vegetarian meals. Meanwhile, I choose to develop recipes that will be iron and vitamin C loaded. Why? because vitamin C helps iron absorption – I love all those new things I learnt about food and my body. So today I am sharing my new breakfast drink. Goodbye coffee and say hello to this Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie.

Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie

It is a super easy and healthy smoothie to drink for breakfast. I don’t even eat cereals after one of this Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie as it contains 7.5 g fibre and 3 g protein. I only add more protein from 2 or 3 boiled egg white. It makes a delicious healthy  on the go breakfast for  summer.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie – Dairy free with Almond milk

You know I don’t drink dairy milk – it upset my stomach – so here I used Unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk. It has been my favorite Almond Milk choice for years as it is 4 health star : no sugar added, low calories, no aftertaste in drink AND it adds a lovely creamy texture to smoothie.

It is a 5-minutes recipe made of 5 simple ingredients:

Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie

  • Fresh banana – if you use ripe banana don’t add the maple syrup or it will be extra sweet
  • Frozen strawberries – it is you vitamin C source. As it is summer in NZ I bought fresh strawberries and freeze them overnight
  • Flaxmeal – don’t skip this magic ingredients! that is where you get the protein and fibre
  • Spinach – that add up some iron and vegetable to your drink. I used only 1/4 cup to keep my smoothie light pink for my kids. Honestly you can add more if you are looking for extra iron, up to 1 cup it won’t change the texture much.
  • Unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk – made from the best California Almonds. This is my favorite dairy free drink for smoothie
  • Maple syrup – this is optional as I said before if you are using ripe banana skip it !

So I am not saying I stop coffee – I am still drinking it outside meals – morning tea for example. But this Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie makes me happy in the morning right now. I am switching with different smoothie every morning. Other vitamin C loaded smoothie I love as a change are my berry smoothie bowl, watermelon strawberry smoothie or mixed berry smoothie.

  1. It’s sounds Yummy Yummy Delicious but No Spinach leaves allergic to spinach maybe I will make it without the Spinach leaves Sorry I will try it with Fresh Mint Leaves

    • Hello ! Fresh mint is a great idea but you can simply leave out the spinach and add kale or nothing else! It will taste great anyway! Enjoy the smoothie 🙂 XOXO Carine.
