A Liquid Breakfast Is Best

What would you prefer; to eat 2 bowlfuls of raw fruit and veg every morning or to sip the same amount slowly in a yummy smoothie? I know my answer, drink it every time! 

Here’s some easy recipes for morning smoothies that I rotate throughout the week. Simply sip them slowly through the morning at work and they’ll keep you full until lunchtime. They’re brimming with natural fruit sugars, vitamins, iron and healthy fats, everything you need for a nutritious start to the day.

1) The Green One

Ideal if you’re feeling a bit tired or under the weather

½ cup blueberries

1 cup broccoli

1 cup cucumber

1 cup celery

1 cup spinach or kale

1 tsp each of chia seeds and linseed

2 tsp flaxseed

½ cup unsweetened almond milk

½ cup water or coconut water

Juice of half a lemon

2) The Protein One

Ideal for days that you workout in the mornings or during the day

2 x scoops or 50g of your preferred protein powder (I use Phd Diet Whey Vanilla Creme)

½ banana

½ cup blueberries 

1 cup almond milk

½ cup water

1 tsp each chia seeds and linseed

2 tsp flaxseed

3) The Fruity One

Ideal for days when you can’t quite face the green one….

½ banana

1 cup mixed berries 

½ mango or papapya

1 cup spinach

½ cup almond milk

½ cup coconut water or water

1 tsp each chia seeds and linseed

2 tsp flaxseed

Other things you can add to each of these to change things up a bit include:

– oats

– agave syrup

– herbs (parsley or mint)

– yoghurt (I prefer St Helens Farm goats milk yoghurt)

– seeds or nuts (try toasting these first, they add a great flavour)

.Let me know if you try these and if you have any other recipes!
