I get so many DM’s asking what kind of smoothie is good for energy, health etc, when really you want to make sure yours contains a good source or protein and is vegetable based – or low GI fruit based!
Here are my suggestions for a really simple healthy smoothie recipe:
1 Cup of Liquid:
Water/Milk/Iced Coffee or Iced Green Tea
1/2 cup Vegetables:
Beetroot (cooked and peeled)/Spinach/Lettuce
1/2 cup Fruit:
1/4 cup to Make it Creamy:
Protein Powder, Greek Yoghurt (I use 0% Fage!)/avocado/banana/nut butter (just 1 tbsp)
1/2 tbsp Sweetener:
Raw Honey/maple syrup/dates (2/3)
1/2 tsp Punch:
1 serving Energy Boost:
Hemp Seeds/Chia seeds/Matcha powder/Spirulina Powder/PB2 Powder
Add your protein powder, liquid, fruit and vegetables to your blender and blend on high with your preferred ingredients above. Add ice if desired- I prefer mine room temperature but most people theirs icy!
