Smoothie to keep the doctor away!

Each morning I make kind of smoothie and believe it or not, it keeps me healthy during influenza-time. Being pregnant I 'm especially proned to some unpleasant winter diseases. So here is my variant of a breakfast smoothie:

150-200 ml Kefir or Plain Yogurt
One big slice of pineapple (to set the flavor)
2 dried plums
1 dried apricot
1 piece of fresh beetroot
1 piece of pumpkin
1 little slice of fresh ginger
1 spoon of dried goji berries ( bought in Sweden, haven't seen them in Almaty)
3-4 hazelnuts
1-2 drops of sea buck thorn oil (havtornsolja/облепих масло)

Blend everything until smooth and drink for breakfast. Sometimes I put frozen berries ( blackcurrants, raspberries, or strawberries) instead of pineapple.
If you want your smoothie to keep your energy level high during longer time, add 1 scoop of whey protein powder.
