FIVE HEALTHY SMOOTHIE SHAKES

FIVE HEALTHY SMOOTHIE SHAKES

Smoothies have been a quick nutrition fix for centuries, long before they became fashionable. They are a quick way to Hussle vitamin fuelled meals that you can prep.

Here are 5 ideas with easy ingredients and controlled sugar.  And a choice of colours!

1.GREEN VEG SMOOTHIE

Mix up half an avocado, a couple of handfuls of kale, a generous splash of lime juice, a small piece of ginger and a few pineapple chunks. A banana is an optional extra.

2.CARROT AND GINGER VITAMIN BLAST

Blend 2 medium carrots and some water until smooth. Throw in a banana, ½ tablespoon ginger (grated from fresh if you can), ¼ teaspoon turmeric and a splash of lemon juice. Mix until smooth. Some almond milk is an optional extra.

3.MAXIMUM PURPLE

Raw beetroot works, but cooked will be smoother. 2 beetroots (peeled and chopped), 1 chopped apple, a few blueberries, a tablespoon of ginger and some water. Blend it all up for a low calorie nutritious treat. Don’t spill it on anything white!

4.MANGO LASSI

This Indian classic needs a small pack of chopped and skinned mango, a 125ml tub of plain whole yogurt, five ice cubes and a pinch of cardamom. Blend it up, thin with water or milk if too thick, flavour with lime juice or a little sugar.

5.APPLE PROTEIN SMOOTH SHAKE

Make friends with your protein powder by adding it to a cored and sliced apple, a handful of spinach, 50g of oats, a few almonds and milk or yogurt. Blend and flavour with cinnamon

Remember that the recommended smoothie portion size is 150ml, which is only a small glass. It is quite easy to throw in a lot more fruit than you would eat ‘whole’ so watch the sugar. Leftovers can go in the fridge or freezer, so no waste. Grab a cheap blender and experiment!
