Blend a delicious nutritious smoothie

Follow my diagram to blend a delicious, nutritious smoothie.



Key components of a smoothie


Top tips

  • Order matters – follow the diagram to layer your smoothie so it blends well.

  • Use frozen fruit and / or yoghurt to thicken and cool your smoothie.

  • Yes, you really do need a green veggie in there to balance the sugar of the fruit. If you don’t like the idea of greens in your smoothie, try baby spinach – it’s so mild you won’t taste it.

  • Add oats or tofu to give you a creamy texture.

  • Add a scoop of cacao for a chocolate fix.

  • If you need some sweetness, try adding 1-2 dried dates or a teaspoon of maple syrup or honey.


Health benefits of smoothies

If you build a smoothie with the key components you’ll have a balanced drink with protein, fibre, healthy fats, complex carbs and vitamins and minerals. Your smoothie will then:

  • Help you feel full longer.

  • Give you sustainable energy.

  • Support healthy digestion.

  • Allow for the slow and steady absorption of natural sugars into your blood.

  • Provide a convenient full meal when on the go or busy.
