3 Smoothies For Your Morning Meal Prep

Smoothies are a bright and colourful way to make sure you are getting breakfast every day – no matter how busy your schedule is. The best thing about smoothies is they can be tailored to your dietary needs and the recipe options are endless! PLUS you can make them ahead of time, ready for the morning rush! Here are just three of our favourites that cater to a few different health needs.

 

Low-sugar smoothie

 

Berries are low in sugar and high in antioxidants! If you’re avoiding sugar (fructose especially) this smoothie is the way to go (and the prettiest, in our opinion!)

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen berries

½ cup oats

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk variety)

½ cup water

½ cup cashews

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Tip: To add an energizing element, replace the water with chilled green tea!

 

Suz:

“My favourite smoothie is the ‘Ginger O’ from our 21 Day Detox Guide. It is uplifting and great for digestion!”

 

Energising Liquid Brekky

When you’re on the go and looking for energy, it is important to find time for breakfast! Smoothies make this easy and this one is full of fiber and energy – just like a normal breakfast, only liquefied!

Ingredients:

1 banana

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk variety

1 heaped tablespoon of peanut butter

¼ cup oats

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

Mike:

“Smoothies are awesome fuel for the gym or a hot yoga class. They don’t make me feel too full so I never feel sick during a heavy workout!”

 

Green Goodness

Greens are GOOD – we know that, so why not include them in your brekky? If you’re looking to include more greens in your diet, green smoothies are the tastiest way to do this, ensuring that you get vitamins, minerals and a delicious breakfast all in one go!

If you’re making your smoothies ahead of time, only pre make them up to two days before – to keep things fresh! Also, go easy on things like cinnamon and chia seeds, which will make your smoothie thicker and thicker as time goes by!
