I discovered this healthy energising green smoothie recipe when I was looking for an easy way to add vitamin B12 on a daily basis to my vegan diet. And since then, it has become an essential part of my morning routine.
B12 energising smoothie : what is it ?
It is an exceptional vitamin and is really important for us to integrate this in a plant based diet. This vitamin supports the normal function of your nerve cells and is needed for red blood cell transformation and DNA synthesis. The human body requires smaller amounts of this on a daily basis compared to other known vitamins. Though as a Vegan we must make sure to consume enough of it, since it is mainly found in meat, egg and dairy products.
Energising vegan B12 sources
You can have this vitamin in tablet forms, however I believe that it is always better to integrate it in your meals; you can for example add it to your lunch and dinner with a few spoons of organic nutritional yeast. For more information or an article dedicated to nutritional yeast comment below !
