Seaweed and Strawberry Smoothie
After my trip to Thailand where I thoroughly enjoyed a variety of excellent smoothies and fresh juices I felt inspired to get my blender out and create some healthy smoothies to perk myself up in this recent spell of muggy weather.
At the moment there is an abundance of soft fruits including strawberries in the shops at good prices, so I couldn’t resist incorporating some into a healthy drink. Stawberries are rich in vitamins and minerals. They have diuretic, purifying and detoxifying properties. In addition, red fruits are recommended and beneficial for asthma and allergy problems, add this to all the fabulous mineral qualities of seaweed and we have a smoothie that is a powerful tonic that will allow us to eliminate accumulated toxins due to excesses and start the day full of energy
5 Strawberries, hulled
1 tea cup of rice, oats or almonds milk
1 tablespoon of cooked seaweed (I use laver)
1 twist of lemon
Pinch sea salt
Cut the strawberries into pieces, add a pinch of sea salt and let it marinate for 20 minutes.
Mix rice, almond or oats milk with the strawberries in a liquidiser.
Add the seaweed and lemon and liquidise again.
Serve over ice
