Enjoy this delicious summery smoothie with yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) tea powder, a typical South American ingredient with numerous health benefits. It stimulates you and makes you alert, but without the tense and uptight feeling that you get with coffee. In addition, it has detoxifying properties and helps to keep the electrolyte balance in the body at the right level, which reduces fluid accumulations and relieves the bloated feeling that you can sometimes get in your stomach. What's more, yerba mate is packed full with anti-oxidants that protect your cells and help to combat the signs of ageing.
