It’s winter. You’re feeling glum. The lack of sunshine, the relentless wind, and our flailing social calendar are hardly inspiring. So why not add a bit of natural boosting birch water into your daily routine? We swear it’s better than hibernating until spring. Refreshing and energy boosting, this nature on tap is pure power.
For those mornings when you can't decide: granola or smoothie? Just have both, because why not! In less than 10 minutes (with just a bit of pre-prep), you can be tucking in to this deliciously nutritious combination of kale, birch water, chia seeds and granola. It's utterly filling with a beautiful crunch from the granola. The banana gives it a rich frozen yogurt-like texture, and those chia seeds will give you a whack of antioxidants and fiber to get you going.
Makes one smoothie bowl:
- Handful kale (keep a bag in the freezer for such occasions)
- 1/3 cup of Säpp organic birch water
- 1/3 cup of Rude Health Oat Drink
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp activated chia seeds (i.e. soaked for at least 30 minutes or overnight)
- 1 tbsp toasted coconut
- 6 raspberries
Put all ingredients apart from coconut and granola into blender and blend until smooth. Then pour into a bowl and top with granola, a few extra raspberries, and the toasted coconut. If you have some other bits and bobs lying around that you're keen to use -- throw them in as well! Keep it playful pals.
For a tart, sweet and deliciously nutritious start to your day – we've partnered up with the fabulous folks at Rude Health to come up with this sippable smoothie recipe for you to enjoy. With a whack of potassium from the banana, fibre from the oats and flaxseeds, and manganese from the raspberries and birch water – you'll be full, fresh and ready for the day.
Makes one smoothie:
1/3 cup Rude Health Organic Ultimate Almond
2 tbsp Rude Health Smoothie Oats
1/3 cup Säpp organic birch water
1 tsp flaxseeds
1/2 a frozen banana
1 ice cube
Put all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Serve with a fresh mint or basil sprig for a pop of colour and freshness. Then pour yourself a cup of Rude Health Granola Strawberry & Raspberry to have alongside and you'll have that full berry experience.
There's nothing worse than falling into a smoothie rut. The same concoction day after day can get super boring, making you want to reach for a less healthy option, so it's important to keep switching up your nutrient-dense treat with new ingredients to keep your tastebuds happy.
As far as function goes, you also want to make sure your smoothie ingredients are best suited to your nutrition goals, so you get the most out of your liquid meal. For example, you'll want your smoothie to be a bit more hearty with the addition of nut butter and banana if it's serving as your breakfast or meal replacement, and you'll want it to be a bit lighter with an extra dose of nutritents (read: leafy greens) if you are detoxing.
As luck would have it, Säpp Birch Water is not only a fantastic hydrator on its own, it makes an awesome addition to your smoothie. Each flavor provides a unique taste and added nutritional punch whether you're having breakfast on the go or refueling after an intense workout.
Here are three smoothie recipes tailored to fit any occasion wheather it's for Breakfast, Detox, or to refuel Post-Workout using our three signature flavors: Original, Nettle, and Rosehip.
