Smoothies are a great way to introduce more fruit and veg into your diet. They are versatile, cheap, quick to make and you can take them to work, to the gym, days out, anywhere. Extremely refreshing and a fantastic way to introduce your kids to a wider range of fruit and veg.
I always recommend smoothies to my clients as they have great benefits providing more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre into their diets. All you need is a blender, some ice, choice of fruits, water, milk or yogurt.
You can go wild with your ingredients with unlimited choices. My personal favourite smoothie is made from ice cubes, a medium banana, tablespoon of 100% peanut butter, 75g of natural Greek yogurt, 25g of oats and 200-250ml of whole fat milk. All blended up adding a little bit of water to change the consistency to how I like it.
They are also great when supplementing with a protein powder, instead of the horrible chalky taste of protein powder and just water or milk. Just add a few scoops of unflavoured or flavoured protein power into your favourite smoothie for a thicker tastier high protein shake.
Pictured here is the strawberry and watermelon smoothie, another one of my favourites with really simple ingrediants. Strawberry, watermelon, icecubes and water. All blended for a super refreshing healthy drink.
Happy blending everyone!
