Vegan sea buckthorn-pumpkin smoothie with whipped cream and cookies

Want to treat yourself with some delicious snack? This vegan sea buckthorn-pumpkin smoothie with whipped cream and biscuits made by the wonderful food photographer Amalija Andersone tastes and looks like sunshine. It will charge your body with a good dose of vitamins and minerals.

Amalija recommends enjoying smoothie not only as a healthy drink with vitamin-rich ingredients but also as a beautiful, endlessly delicious and healthy snack, especially together with mouthwatering sea buckthorn biscuits. Amalia enjoys how easy it is to treat yourself healthily, and that not everything that looks sinful really is. In the dessert hides various valuable sources of vitamins, such as sea buckthorn, which help improving immunity, and the Latvian super vegetable - the king of the autumn garden - pumpkin. Pumpkin in smoothies is the best when added fresh to keep as many vitamins as possible.

The smoothie is enriched with turmeric and ginger. They are very powerful herbs and protect against many different diseases. In the smoothie, they will enhance the sunny colour, taste nuance and the health effect on the body. An important ingredient is also the maca root powder, which helps in the fight against stress, restores after heavy physical activity and improves the general condition of the body. The maca root powder ads the sweetness as the smoothie does not contain bananas.
