My 3 go-to smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to hydrate, nourish and get a boost of vitamins and minerals. Add some protein powder (plant-based) and you have a perfect post-workout refuelling meal.

I personally don’t think fruit-only smoothies should replace a meal. But they can be a quick pre-breakfast infusion of goodness which will hit your bloodstream in 30 mins on an empty stomach. BOOM!

Here’s how I make mine more nourishing and filling, with three of my favourite personal recipes.

Very Berry Smoothie

  • 1 cup berries
  • 1 banana or a few slices of mango for sweetness
  • 30g protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • water

Optional: nut milk instead of water and some coconut yoghurt (or normal yogurt if you’re not vegan)
