Today is World Pulses Day! We all know how healthy legumes are, but today I want to give a little bit of extra love to the white lupini bean. About six months ago, I wrote a blog about this healthy, Dutch-produced legume in conjunction with Food Forward and also made delicious falafel with them. This time I’ve made a smoothie using these Dutch, sustainable beans. This smoothie is link in the chain and gives you a tasty boost to start your day (something I could definitely use now that I’m a mama, hehe.
Want to go completely local? Swap out the banana for a pear, the lemon for a handful of cranberries and the coconut yogurt for dairy yogurt. Who’s with me? Tag @RensKroes in your smoothie-related posts. Cheers!
