A lunchtime smoothie can be a great option if you’re looking to quickly nourish yourself. If you blend the right ingredients you’ll feel energised and have long-lasting energy throughout the afternoon (no need for that muffin at 3pm). The trick is to include a balance of protein, fats and fibrous carbohydrates. Since we’re blending the ingredients together it’s gentle on the digestive system which is a bonus for gut health as well.
- 1 heaped tablespoon of Superfood Protein Blend (Chocolate)
- 200ml coconut milk
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- Handful of berries (I used frozen raspberries)
- 1 banana (not too ripe)
- Water for desired consistency
- Cinnamon to taste
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
