James is on a detox diet, so that means no dairy, soy, flour or sugar. As you can imagine versatility in his menu can seem limited at times and a creative mind is a must to make breakfast interesting. I think I am the right woman for the job. I came up with this very simple and delicious smoothie. I tossed in some spirulina for added protein and minerals. Spirulina has an impressive 60% protein content- a great muscle building potential. It also contains a powerful combination of minerals including iron, calcium and magnesium. I whipped up the smoothie and even my 3 year old daughter loved the taste.
Creamy Detoxifing Blueberry Smoothie
1/4 cup cashew nuts soak over night in 1 cup water
1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen if you want a more frozen smoothie)
1 tbs spirulina powder
Grind the cashews with the soaking water with a hand held mixer or in a blender until smooth. Add the berries and spirulina. Enjoy!
