Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon blueberries 
  • 1/4 cup mango 
  • 1 cup coconut water 
  • 1 Cleanse Blendie

Method:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth.

Notes:

Banana’s, blueberries and mango  – and cruciferous vegetables like spinach found in the Cleanse Blendie all have properties which help reduce inflammation, provide fibre to help promote regular bowel movements and phytochemicals/antioxidants. These ingredients are all important for healthy gut microbiota – which has been shown to have a myriad of health benefits. Healthy gut bacteria help us digest and absorb nutrients, fight against toxins and carcinogens, strengthen our immune health and even regulate our metabolism.
