Smoothie Power!

A smoothie can be a great breakfast or a filling snack! On weekends I sometimes have a smoothie for lunch if I have had eggs on toast for breakfast and a cooked dinner planned – it makes a quick and easy light meal.

 

Here’s some of my favourite recipes:

I love this smoothie in the mornings as it’s an easy way to get 1 of my 4 servings of veggies for the day and 1 of my 2 fruit servings plus loads of nutrients and a good serve of protein. (pictured above)
– 200mls water
– 2-3 tablespoons of protein powder (vanilla or chocolate both work)
– 1/2 cup blueberries
– handful of spinach
– 1 tsp cinnamon + ice
– 2 tsp LSA
– 2 tablespoons unsweetened yoghurt

*

This smoothie is great before a workout or for hungry kids who get home from school and need a good snack!

– 200mls of trim milk
– 2-3 tbsp yoghurt (unsweetened or vanilla)
– 1 small banana
– 1-2 tbsp rolled oats
– 1 tsp of runny honey

*

For a great boost of antioxidants and omega 3s, this is a good option for a post workout breakfast AND it tastes fresh and amazing! 
It is also FODMAP free so good for those with IBS.
– Handful frozen mixed berries
– ½ frozen banana
– 100ml water
– 100ml trim milk (use lactose free or soy if needed)
– 2 tsp. cinnamon
– 1 tablespoon of ground LSA (Linseeds, Sunflower and Almond mix!)

*

Blend this all together, it is totally yum!
– ¼ can of peaches in juice
– 150mls of trim milk
– 3tbsp of strawberry/berry yoghurt (I like Symbio)
– 2 tsp of ground LSA

*

I have been trying out green smoothies and finally think I cracked it!
– 2 large handfuls of spinach (well washed) into a blender with about 1 cup chilled water
– add 1/2 banana (mine was frozen)
– then either a chopped peeled apple or peach and squeeze of lemon juice
