We’re now 1 week into 2019! After bingeing over the festive period and drinking too much alcohol, a week back into my normal routine, I am feeling a lot better! Goodbye Christmas bloat! I thought I’d share with you one of my go-to breakfast smoothies. This detox breakfast smoothie will help you fuel your body with goodness in the morning too.
Green smoothies are a great way of boosting your immune system and are the easiest way to pack a ton of nutrition into a meal. Smoothies can be made and cleaned up in less than 10 minutes! The best part is, you don’t even need to turn the oven on! This smoothie is made with leafy greens which is full of antioxidants and vitamins. Green smoothies inparticular are an excellent way to enjoy a delicious drink that satisfies hunger, whilst offering maximum nutrition. You may think that turning dark leafy greens into a sweet, smooth delicious drink can be difficult. Well you are mistaken, any blender will do the trick. By adding ripe bananas, a squirt of honey or even coconut milk/water can make a tasty drink.
I always recommend rotating your greens, as this will ensure you are getting a wide variety of nutritions. It is also a good idea to go easy on fruits which contain higher natural sugar contents. This is to ensure your blood sugar levels do not spike, which in turn will cause hunger and cravings. Compared to juicing greens, smoothies are the way to go! Juicing is time consuming, expensive and messy! For those reasons, many people avoid juicing greens daily. Therefore, preparing a pitcher of green smoothies takes less than 5 minutes are perfect for those with busy mornings on the go.
