Healthy Smoothies


I personally think that Smoothies make a great breakfast; they can be really healthy (depending on the ingredients) and super quick to make if you are in a rush in the mornings. When I make them for breakfast they normally fill me up until lunchtime which beats that mid-morning craving. Here are 3 of my favourites

Breakfast of Champions
This has a great balance of carbs, Protein and good fats to kick start your day.
1 glass of skimmed milk
1 ripe banana
30g porridge oats
1 tablespoon of drinking chocolate powder
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of honey
A sprinkle of cinnamon
Blend until smooth

 Pomegranate Punch
Pomegranate is packed full of anti-oxidants and along with the almonds it couldn't be better for you.
3/4 glass of pomegranate juice
¼ glass of milk
1 ripe banana
2 ice cubes
 2 tablespoons of flaked almonds
1 teaspoon of honey
Blend until smooth

 Popeye’s Tipple
A lot of people are put off by spinach, don’t be, you can’t even taste it in this but reap the health benefits.
1 glass of water
1 handful of frozen berries
1 handful of spinach
1 teaspoon of honey
¼ inch piece of ginger grated
Blend until smooth
