Info about The Pea Power Smoothie
If you decide to you frozen peas I would recommend leaving the peas for a few minutes in hot water. I tend to boil some water in a kettle and then leave the peas in a bowl with the boiling water while I collect and add the other ingredients. I would recommend using frozen peas instead of tinned peas. Tinned peas tend to have a strong flavor that can be very overpowering (we already have a lot of power in The Pea Power Smoothie).
The peas blend easily with the rest of the ingredients to give a smooth texture. The combination of apricots and peas unite to give a pleasing taste that is not overpowered by the peas.
The Pea Power Smoothie gets great results for vitamin and mineral content. It can proudly say that it contains 25% or more of your RDI for every single vitamin and mineral, with star performers being vitamin C (73%) iron (54%) and phosphorus (48%).
