Banana Pineapple "Super Meal" Smoothie
We all have those days when making a healthy meal at home is just too time-consuming

and complicated.

Or we don’t feel like eating a whole meal!

Yet, most of us have a genuine desire to get the right mix of nutrients and lead a healthy

life-style.

That’s when a clean, organic, high-quality, superfood like Ambronite comes in handy!

Ambronite is a quick and healthy, organic drinkable shake mix that was designed to fill that need.

Each bag contains one full meal (500 kcal) of all of key essential nutrients–so when the people

at Ambronite sent me a box of single serving packets, I decided to give it a try.

1 Ambronite meal (117 g) contains 20 organic whole food ingredients totalling 500 kcal with

32% of fats, 44% of carbohydrates and 24% of protein (30 g)

Ambronite’s key ingredients include:

Almonds

Almonds (Prunus amygdalus) are a good source of vitamin E and have a good fatty acid profile

of mono-and polyunsaturated essential fats.

They also contain over 20g of protein per 100g as well as significant amounts of micronutrients

like magnesium, calcium, copper, manganese, potassium and biotin.

Besides almonds contain several non-vital but useful substances including polyphenols and

phytosterols.

Oats

Oats (Avena sativa) are a great source of blood sugar stabilising complex carbohydrates and

sustained-release energy.

They are rich in minerals such as manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus and magnesium as

well as several B-group vitamins.

Unlike many other plants oats contain soluble fibres called ß-glucans that slow down energy

release during digestion.

Oats also contain essential polyunsaturated omega fatty acids. European Food Safety Authority

(EFSA) advocates oats to help increase satiety stabilising blood sugar, maintain normal blood

LDL-cholesterol levels and improve digestive function.

They use oats that have been flattened, pre-cooked, dried and millet into a fine powder to ensure

cold-water solubility and the bioavailability of nutrients.

Brown rice

Brown rice (Oryza sativa) is used as a source of protein.

The protein is extracted from the sprouted rice in low-temperatures using vegetable enzymes to

sustain all natural micronutrients.

This brown rice protein has an excellent amino acid profile.

It contains eight out of nine essential amino acids and nine nonessential amino acids as well as a

good amount of essential micronutrients such as iron and vitamin E.

Coconut

Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is rich in minerals containing magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron and calcium.

It also has trace amounts of several B vitamins.

Because of the fibre-richness and low glycemic index coconut provides stable energy without

sugar-crash.

Besides nutrition coconut brings natural sweetness and creaminess to the recipe.

Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts (Corylus avellana) are great source of tiamin, B6 and other B vitamins as well as

vitamin E.

They also contain several minerals such as magnesium and iron as well as nonessential highly

beneficial antioxidant phenolics.

Hazelnuts are a great source of essential monounsaturated omega fatty acids and contain 15g of

protein per 100g.

Flaxseed

Flaxseed is a functional food, and a rich source of fiber-related compounds called lignans.

Lignans are unique polyphenols that possess hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic and powerful

antioxidant properties.

Studies suggest that flaxseed may help prevent and treat heart disease and cancer.

Flaxseeds are the number one source of omega-3 fatty acid, which is known to be important

for human brain function.

On average, 100 grams of flaxseed amount to 28 grams of fiber, 41 grams of fats and 20 grams

of protein.

Lucuma

Lucuma (Pouteria lucuma) has significant amounts of B vitamins as well as iron, calcium and

phosphorus.

It also contains ß-Carotene which is a pre-form of vitamin A.

The low glycemic index makes lucuma a good source of stable energy from carbohydrates.

Stinging Nettle

Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is a particularly great source of calcium as well as many other

micronutrients such as vitamins A, C and K.

This rare herb is almost five times richer in calcium than regular milk.

It also contains significant amount of chlorophyll which is a non-essential but beneficial

phytonutrient also known as the green pigment found in plants.

Nettle grows wild and takes very little to cultivate making it sustainable source of nutrition.

Rice Bran

Rice bran solubles or tocotrienols are the nutritional powerhouse of the rice (Oryza sativa) grain

containing significant amounts of vitamin E.

Tocotrienols are also rich in protein, B-group vitamins, and selenium as well as many non-essential

but beneficial substances like coenzyme Q10, alpha lipoic acid, flavonoids and glutathione peroxidase.

The powder is produced by the fermentation of whole grain rice grain located between the shell

and the bran, which contains nearly all the nutrients in rice.

Chlorella

Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a single-celled freshwater algae that is full of essential nutrients.

The plant contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, and K. In addition chlorella contains vitamin D and B12.

It also contains calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, iodine and other minerals as well as

essential amino and fatty acids.

Chlorella is richer in chlorophyll than any other plant and has been considered as a complete food

by some nutritionists.

They use special chlorella to which cell walls have been cracked using a high-pressure jet spray

to improve digestibility and nutrient bioavailability.

Apple

Apple (Malus domestica) contains vitamin C and has high fiber content.

It’s peel is high in antioxidants, polyphenols and phytochemicals.

They use an apple powder made from complete organic apples with peel, from US or Europe,

depending on availability and quality.

Being a minor compound in the recipe, it’s main role is taste, blending well to the oats with

lucuma, adding a few grams of fructose to the carbohydrate base.

Northern Europe.

They are rich in vitamins A and C and contain traces of several B-complex vitamins as well

as multiple essential minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium.

In addition to essential nutrients bilberries are very rich in flavonoids and have two times

the amount of antioxidants than blueberries and three times that of an apple measured

ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) index.

The antioxidants in wild berries have shown to be bioavailable for the human body.

The bilberries they use have grown wild above polar circle in the northern Finland, hand-

picked and carefully dried and powdered in low temperatures to preserve nutrients.

Banana Pineapple Ambronite  “Supermeal” Smoothie

Banana Pineapple "Supermeal" Smoothie

Ambronite is more than a traditional meal replacement–that’s why the makers call it

“the drinkable supermeal”.

Packed with natural goodness and free of artificial nasties, it tastes of oats and fresh nuts

with a hint of Nordic herbs and berries.

The package states that the pure, neutral taste mixes well with water, juices and your

favorite fruit.

First, I mixed a packet of Ambronite with filtered water–according to package directions–

and shook the contents vigorously in a jar.

The resulting drink was too grainy and bland for my taste, so I whipped up a quick smoothie

with the fresh fruit I had on hand for a sweeter, smoother drink.
