1 cup frozen pineapple
1 cup chopped frozen banana
½ cup ice cubes
1–2 tbsp (15–30 mL) freshly grated ginger
1–2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1 scoop (2.5 g) Collagen30 powder
Place all ingredients in the blender.
Blend for 30–60 seconds, until smooth.
Pour into a glass, drink, enjoy, and recover!
Ginger is a natural remedy used to help fight nausea and soothe upset stomachs but is also a good choice to help dull exercise-induced muscle pain thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Choose organic fruit when you can to reduce exposure pesticide residues.
To get the desired consistency, add or reduce the amount of water you use.
Frozen bananas add creaminess to your smoothie. Peel, chop, and store in a freezer bag.
Chia seeds, flaxseeds, and shelled hemp seeds also thicken smoothies if you prefer not to use a banana. All these seeds contain healthy fats, protein, fibre, and other nutrients, so it’s nice to have them all stocked in the pantry to choose from.
A powerful blender is the best choice when using frozen fruit and including ice cubes.
Follow the manufacturer’s suggestions for loading the blend for best outcome. For example, bottom-loading blenders often recommend adding the liquids first, followed by soft foods and powders, then frozen and ice cubes on top.
For convenience, have ½–1 cup water on hand if you need to reduce the thickness once blending has started.
