MÈR-MÈR | Mer-maid Smoothie Mix 🍹
It's already a known fact that when mermaids decide to live their lives on land, they use Mèr-Mèr Monoï to maintain their magical flowy manes, right? ;)
But what on earth do they eat? The memorable scene from Splash comes to mind...you know the scene where Allen (Tom Hanks) takes Madison (Daryl Hannah) out to a nice restaurant for dinner - when the lobster is served, Madison immediately recognizes it and grabs it whole with two hands and devours it in a few crunchy bites!
Let's just say, Mermaids have learned to be more subtle nowadays.
Inspired by our Mèr-Mèr Monoï ingredients, here's a smoothie dedicated to all the mermaids out there who are feeling homesick from the sea...and not to worry, this recipe does not require any lobsters!
What you'll need:
1) Emerald Smoothie :
- Spirulina (2 tsps, can put more but it does have a strong scent!)
- Kiwi (3, ripe for more sweetness)
- Banana (2, ripe for more sweetness)
2) Pink Smoothie :
- Strawberry (8)
- Cherry (10, pitted)
- Peach (4, pitted and ripe for more sweetness)
3) Coconut milk (or other milks you prefer)
*Optional toppings / additives : coconut flakes (unsweetened), cocoa nibs, golji berries, granola, almonds, protein powder and/or honey.
-Spirulina: Strengthens the immune system and boosts the energy level.
-Kiwi: A good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals.
-Banana: Improves your mood, it regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation.
-Strawberry: Great source of fibre and vitamins C, K.
-Cherry: Slows the aging of skin, each fruit is packed with powerful antioxidants. It contain natural melatonin, which helps you to sleep better at night.

How to make:
