A power smoothie packed with good stuff


Banana, blueberry and pumpkin seed smoothie

Every ingredient in this smoothie was chosen with your health in mind without compromising on taste. As a chef I know a lot about nutrition and the special superpowers hiding in your food.

According to scientific research blueberries can increase your concentration and memory for up to five hours, perfect if you have an early morning meeting. Plus, they are packed with antioxidants!

If you are a fitness junkie then bananas are a must-have ingredient.  They not only help protect you against muscle cramps, they also are packed with tryptophan, which helps you overcome depression and reduces the symptoms of PMS.  So for the women sobbing because life is all too hard at one particular time of the month drink this smoothie and take a breath!

Finally the pumpkin seeds. They might be little but they are packed with magnesium, which is shown to help prevent strokes and heart attacks. These seeds are also rich in zinc, which helps boost your fertility along with your immune system. Zinc also helps develop your muscles after a work out so get blending my healthy chefs.
