Tahini Orange Smoothie

Tahiniaka: blended sesame seeds.

Packed full of iron, calcium, protein and unsaturated fat it’s a welcome change from the usual nut butter smoothie additive. Combined with oranges and banana in this recipe you’re getting a serious vitamin C punch with cinnamon to regulate blood sugars and banana for some natural sweetness.

On another note, you may be wondering why I add a pinch of sea salt into my smoothies. I use pink Himalayan salt, which unlike regular table salt, contains 84 elements found in our bodies, those like magnesium, calcium, potassium. Thanks to these minerals, pink salt can balance electrolytes, thus aiding hydration, balance cell pH, particularly in brain cells! Prevent muscle cramping, help to absorb nutrients, improve circulation and dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins! Plus you only need to use a small amount because the granules are so large and coarse meaning your sodium intake is much lower than traditional table salt. And no you won’t even taste it’s in here!

Simply blend..

1 tbsp tahini (light tahini – available in any health food store and some supermarkets, particularly in the U.A.E. or blend your own sesame seeds!)

1/2 orange

1 small frozen banana

100ml unsweetened almond milk

Small pinch of Pink Himalayan or sea salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Ice and 1 tsp coconut oil optional
