Sprouts and Greens Smoothie Bowl
5 min Prep
Green bowl drizzled in tahini because well it's just delicious on everything. Love it on roasted or steamed veggies with some lemon juice so why not on smoothies.
I also added some mixed sprouts this green concoction.
You can basically sprout everything...seeds, legumes, grains, nuts and grasses.
Sprouting is able to activate beneficial enzymes, which make all types of grains, seeds, beans and nuts easier on the digestive system. This also boosts beneficial bacteria in the gut reducing inflammation and possible autoimmune reactions.
Seeds and legumes see a raise in antioxidant levels when sprouted, making them an important aid against free radical and ageing. There is also an increase in the contents of B vitamins, vitamin C, A, beta-carotene and improved availability of calcium, iron, and zinc. Sprouts are the perfect support for skin and immune health.
One of the main benefits though is that germination lower the levels of anti-nutrients such as phytic acid, lectins, saponins and enzyme inhibitors. Anti-nutrients are naturally occurring compounds that protect plants in nature but they can block the absorption of essential vitamins and minerals by the body like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc inhibiting their uptake and our digestive enzymes.
Plant medicine daily!
Place all ingredients except tahini in a blender or food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Transfer to a serving bowl and top with a tahini drizzle, some shredded coconut and your favourite seeds. Enjoy!
Can add a couple of dates of the sprouts make the smoothie too spicy for your taste.
