Appletini anyone...?

So as part of my detox I have given up all caffeine so my beloved morning coffee is out. :( But! Never fear.. I have been introduced to these incredibly tasty breakfast latte's. So I have replaced one obsession with another but at least this one has a bucket load of nutrients in it! Brazil Nuts are a bit pricey but I only use 3 a day so it doesn't actually work out too bad. We have a Magic Bullet blender which is great for making these but an ordinary blender would work fine too. Why so much goodness you ask...?

  • Brazil Nuts are full of Selenium making them a complete protein, which means they contain all the essential amino acids for optimum growth and energy! 
  • Sunflower Seeds contain a high amount of Vitamin E which neutralizes free radicals, is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. They also help to prevent asthma, heart attacks, strokes and arthritis.
  • Pure Apple Juice helps reduce cholesterol levels and contains high amounts of Potassium and antioxidants. They also assist in cleansing the liver, kidneys and intestines, eliminating harmful toxins and improving digestion.  
  • Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar levels, cures yeast infections, proliferates certain cancer cells, prevents blood clots, boosts cognitive function and memory and is great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium. Wow!
So if that wasn't enough convincing, try one and see how tasty they are!
Blend together 1 Cup Pure Organic Apple Juice, 3 Brazil Nuts and 1 Tablespoon Sunflower Seeds. Pour into a glass (Martini Glass not essential but it sure makes you feel special!) and serve with sprinkled Cinnamon on top. 

Love and good health...
