Hibiscus Peach

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ oz broccoleaf
  • 1 peach - pitted
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 2 tbsp hibiscus flowers
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup ice

What is Broccoleaf? It looks like a leafy green but tastes like a sugar snap pea, has a full day’s serving of vitamin C, and is a great source of vitamins A and D. Basically, it’s the newest superfood no one has heard of yet. Another super healthy food you might not know too much about, Hibiscus has been used for its anti-inflammatory properties for centuries. Besides their floral, calming taste, hibiscus flowers have been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and aid in digestion. Mix these two powerhouses with peach,  banana and coconut water, and you’ve got a tropical smoothie that’s so cool, even the cool kids don’t know about it yet! Pro tip: soak the hibiscus flowers in the coconut water for a few minutes to help the flavors diffuse.
