I have a love for smoothies, maybe because back in the days while I was studying I worked in a smoothie bar or maybe because it is such a great way to get lots of vegetables and goodness into your diet without trying too hard. But either way they make my energy levels increase and I feel amazing.
My top tip for making smoothies is to have a balance don't go crazy with the fruit, and always add something green!
Here is one of my favourite smoothie recipes and a great smoothie for beginners.
- 1 1/2 cup of baby spinach
- 1 cup of water or unsweetened coconut water
- 1tbs of chia seeds
- 1/4 of a avocado
- couple slice of fresh pineapple
- sprig of mint leafs
option: add some nuts like brazil, walnuts, almonds, cashews or a protein powder like Nuzest Clean lean protein for a protein boost that will keep you full for longer.
blend all together until smooth, and enjoy!
