20 Sep Weight Loss Berry Smoothie Recipe
Breakfast can be a tricky meal to get right. Ideally it should be tasty, healthy and filling enough to take you through to lunch, but also speedy and practical to fit into a busy morning. A well structured berry smoothie can tick all of these boxes.
This berry smoothie recipe contains three servings of fruit and vegetables. It’s low in sugar, contains healthy fats and provides a good source of protein from quality protein powder. Not to mention being packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The carbs are slow releasing carbs, which means they are digested more by the body, keeping blood sugar levels stable.
Whizz it up in a NutriBullet, smoothie maker, jug blender or even with a hand blender. If weight loss is one of your goals, this berry smoothie is a treat that can stay on the menu.
WEIGHT LOSS BERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE
- 80g frozen mixed berries
- Half a medium courgette or two florets of cauliflower (you can use frozen)
- A serving of SunWarrior Vegan Berry Protein
- Half an avocado (you can use frozen or fresh)
- Unsweetened dairy free milk or water – enough to reach desired consistency
Simply throw all of the ingredients into your blender, blitz and enjoy…
If you want to mix up your smoothie from the above, just remember to add all the key elements. Start with a base of nut milk, water or coconut water, add protein powder, a healthy fat (avocado, nuts, seeds or coconut / MCT oil), vegetables (courgette, cauliflower or spinach work well), and a portion of fruit (lower sugar fruits like berries are ideal). You can also add in health-boosting ingredients such as a chunk of fresh ginger, spirulina or collagen powder.
