Raspberry and Watercress Smoothie

Tuesdays album..
Another wacky smoothie which sounds awful but tastes great.
After profusely googling, I found out watercress contains MORE calcium than a cup of whole milk! The shock was so overwhelming I bought an extra bag to try in this mornings mix.
45g Watercress
6 Raspberries
Half an avocado
Light soy milk 150ml
100ml coconut water
1 tsp Manuka honey
1 large banana
3 fresh sage leaves

All in a blender for 2 minutes.

Colour: light brown.
Taste - really sweet and no hint of sage or watercress!
Health benefits from watercress: contains MORE iron than spinach and it increases levels of protective antioxidants in the blood.
Health benefits from raspberries: helps lift moods and improves vision as well as aids digestion.
