If you have been following my instagram page for a while, you will know I LOVE a smoothie!
They are such a good way to get in that extra nutrients, whether it's to reach 5 a day, or to get that protein kick!
Here are my tips to making the perfect smoothie-
Add a scoop of Scottish Oats to the mix! Super yummy ( especially if you like oat milk) makes its a lot thicker and gives you that long lasting energy to take you through the morning.
2- BITTER SWEET
For those dark green smoothies...ie Spinach or kale, add a tea spoon of cacao to take the bitterness away and add some sweetness! Cacao is the happy superfood remember, so help release those endorphins you chocolate lovers!
3- PICK AND MIX
Make sure you add an even mix of veg and fruit to the smoothie so you haven't over done in with the sugar!
4- POST WORKOUT
Add a scoop of protein to the mix to get that extra kick and help with muscles recovery.
5- SUPER FOOD SEEDS
Flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, head of them right? But not sure what to eat them with... whack them in a smoothie to soak up their benefits!!
There you have it! A few hints and tips :) Keep your eyes pealed for my next few blogs, talking about superfoods and recipes!!
Lots of love,
