The key to deliciously healthy smoothie recipes
Maybe it’s just me, but there’s nothing worse than a boring green smoothie to start off your morning. I want my mornings to start with fresh, vibrant flavours, and deliciously refreshing ingredients.
Before we get to the delicious recipes below, let’s cover some common questions about smoothies first!
What are the healthiest things to put in a smoothie?
Honestly, there are so many variations that you can add to you smoothies to make it healthy. I personally love to add a great base which includes fruits or veggies. Adding a handful of spinach or kale is a great way to add more antioxidants to your drink. The important thing is that you’re not adding additional sweeteners to your smoothies. The fruit and even your greens will have enough natural sugars for you.
Is having a smoothie for breakfast healthy?
Smoothies can be a great healthy breakfast – it just depends on the ingredients you’re using and the portions as well. The recipes below are all healthy and quick and easy to make and have for breakfast daily. Smoothies for breakfast are a great way to get your nutrients in. Adding plant based proteins can also make a smoothie more filling to start you off on the right foot.
Can I replace milk with water in a smoothie?
Yes of course! Water is a great alternative to milk and helps add that bit of liquid needed to help blend the smoothie. Just know that the more liquid you add, the less creamy or thick your smoothie is. Also note that adding too much water can cause you to lose some of the flavour of the smoothie.
When is the best time to have a smoothie?
Smoothies are great because they can be had at multiple times during the day. They make a quick and easy breakfast, they’re perfect for before and after a workout, amazing for a lunch on-the-go and also good for when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.
