SIMPLE SUMMER SMOOTHIES


Starting the day with a smoothie can be one of the easiest and healthiest ways to kick start your day. Morning can often be hectic and if you aren’t finishing off the kids left overs you may skip it all together. So starting with a 2 minute smoothie can be the simple answer. 

Here are some of my top tips for making some awesome smoothies:

  • Start with frozen fruit, this way the smoothie will be nice and cold.
  • Bananas will add some extra energy and carbs ( first peel, wrap in foil and freeze bananas ) 
  • Adding avocado makes the smoothies really creamy and you can’t even taste it
  • Try adding some nut butters for protein ( peanut, almond butter)
  • For some extra protein add some protein powder to your smoothie ( whey, hemp, pea, rice) 
  • By adding cinnamon it will help stabilise your blood sugar levels
  • Don’t forget the greens - add spinach, kale, cucumber
  • Why not make it thicker and enjoy a smoothie bowl 
  • Add some chia seeds for some crunch 
  • Add a espresso or some green tea for a caffeine boost 


Now some for you to try at home
