If you’re searching for a smoothie that’ll assist in weight loss, spicy citrus and berry smoothie is your answer. The fibre-rich chia seeds and raspberries will wake up your digestion, and the cayenne pepper, that’s a natural appetite suppressant; will kickstart your metabolism for the day. Not forgetting the buckwheat grouts which provide easily digestible protein and energy.

 

Health benefits –

·       Scientists at the Laval University in Quebec found that people who took cayenne pepper for breakfast had less appetite, which lead to consumption of fewer calories throughout the day. Cayenne is a great metabolic-booster, helping the body in burning excess amounts of fats.

 

2 tablespoons raw cashews

¼ cup buckwheat grouts

1 peach, sliced

3 oranges, juiced

1½ cups frozen raspberries

2 frozen bananas, sliced

pinch cayenne pepper, to taste

 

Place the cashews, buckwheat grouts, peach slices and the orange juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl and decorate with favourite toppings like fruit, rawnola, homemade ice cream, hemp seeds or bee pollen, coconut shreds and serve.  

Enjoy!
