Enzyme-rich pineapple with the burning warmth of ginger make this drink the perfect aid to combating sluggishness and fatigue from the humid, rainy weather. Bee pollen is rich in all your B Vitamins and can help to alleviate Springtime allergies. Chia has some amazing benefits too:
- high in fibre
- high in minerals (manganese and phosphorous)
- has tryptophan which helps you get fuller faster thus cutting down how much you consume
I’m sure there are lots more but let’s get on with the recipe.
1 pineapple, peeled and chopped
2 tbls chia soaked in 3 cups of water (20 min – overnight)
10 cm – 15 cm length of fresh ginger
Toss the whole pineapple into the blender and puree until smooth. Add chopped ginger and blend on high until incorporated. Pour the chia seeds and water into the blender and using a chopstick or the handle of a long spoon, mix it until evenly incorporated.
Pour into tall glasses and garnish with 1/2 tbls bee pollen in each glass. Before sipping, use a spoon and mix in as much of the bee pollen as you can.
