APRIL BLOG POST
Finally!!! Spring is here.
It’s time to dust off the blender and hit the shops for some amazingly fresh Spring fruit and Veg.
I have discovered 3 mouth-watering, flavour bursting healthy smoothies that will put a spring back in your step this season.
First up we have the:
RASPERRY & COCONUT SMOOTHIE
- 1 ripe banana
- 80g frozen raspberries
- 150ml coconut water
- 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
- For the topping: Ground pistachios or coconut flakes
Pop all the above ingredients into your blender and pour into a glass and enjoy.
Did you know coconut water is not only very tasty it is nutritious and some studies have shown that it can benefit your heart, blood sugar and kidney health.
Next up we have:
THE VANILLA PROTEIN CUPCAKE SMOOTHIE
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
If you are like me and find it hard to down a protein shake with just water, you need to try this smoothie!
Simply, blend all the ingredients into your blender and voila!
*Any whey protein can be used when making this smoothie.
Did you know this smoothie is a low calorie high protein shake that will keep you fuller for longer. The perfect breakfast option.
And last but not least the:
The high energy smoothie! A great shake to get your through a busy day!
- 1 cup Pineapple
- 2 cups Spinach
- 1/2 cup Grapes
- 1 1/2 cup Orange Juice
- 1 Banana
Again, just add all the ingredients into your blender and serve up.
Did you know adding spinach to your diet is a huge benefit. Spinach is high in carotenoids, which your body converts to vitamin A.
Vitamin A supports a healthy immune system, is great for your skin and protects your eyes!
