Sometimes I’m a little late to the party.
Smoothies are not something I could really get my head around. I have always been in a mindset that I could not perceive a drink as a meal and maybe I never will but when I was feeling really under the weather and in need of a superfood hit a smoothie seemed like a good option to try.
Another thing is I don’t actually own a blender and I was not prepared to nip out and buy just to sit in the cupboard and not be used.
On this basis I thought I’ll dip my toe into the pool of smoothie making and use a simple recipe and my trusty hand held soup blender (which now has a new name of smoothie/soup blender, it’s going up in the world).
Strawberry Super Food Smoothie
One packet of strawberries – Around 15
One scoop of vanilla protein shake
250ml Almond Milk (I use unsweetened)
One teaspoon maca powder
One teaspoon lumca powder
Some spinach leaves (your choice how much)
A teaspoon of chia seeds
A teaspoon of calco nibs
Blend your strawberries, spinach and almond milk until smooth, stir in the maca, lumca, protein chia and calco then leave in the fridge for 10 minutes so the smoothie thickens and enjoy cold with a old fashioned straw.
Do you make smoothies often? Do you find they fill you up until lunch or did you enjoy with a light breakfast like I did?
