Looking for an energy boost this January? Whether you’re picking up an exercise routine or opting for healthy nutritional food choices, we have two excellent smoothie recipes to support your lifestyle and give your body a nutrition boost for the new year. Plus, they’re delicious and very simple to make!
Start with two cups of your liquid base- you can switch it up with soya or dairy milk, you might need to add more based on how much fruit you use.
Prep your fruit and veg on these handy Paddle Chopping Boards, which will allow you to easily pick up your board to scoop the chopped pieces into the blender.
Add a handful of ice to thicken up but you’ll probably find it cold enough if using frozen fruit. Check out our range of blenders here.
We love these fun colourful tutti hiball glasses to serve them in!
Get your energy levels up again with this flavoursome green smoothie packed full of nutrition. Kale will restore iron and help reduce tiredness, you’ll want a generous washed handful but too much can make the smoothie taste a bit savoury. Kiwi’s have lots of vitamin C which is great for keeping colds at bay during the winter months. And Flax seed is full of essential fatty acids (those are your “good” fats) which keep your heart healthy, making this smoothie great for those hitting the gym or looking for a tasty vitamin boost!
Handful of fresh kale
2 kiwi’s peeled and chopped
1 Apple cored and chopped (Tip: Use an apple corer for ease!)
1 tsp Almond butter
1 tsp Flax seed
Blueberries are great little energy boosters and packed full of anti-oxidants. Don’t worry about lack of seasonal fresh berries, opt for frozen ones whilst out of season. They’ll still have lots of nutritional value. The same goes for the mango chunks, they’re full of vitamins and help healthy digestion. Banana mixed with almond butter and milk create a really creamy base for this filling drink. Chia seeds help look after your heart and contain iron and omega-3. This ones great for on the go!
