Smoothies can be a quick, healthy and easy breakfast but some days we need a little more energy. If you find smoothies aren’t hitting the spot, or you need a little more try the suggestions below to boost your smoothie.
Adding a handful of rolled oats to your morning smoothie adds fibre and slow releasing energy. Try this if you are finding yourself hungry shortly after having your smoothie.
Chia seeds or flaxseeds are a great addition to any smoothie. They don’t alter the taste or texture but provide fibre and healthy fats which can help manage blood sugars and keep energy levels stable. 1-2 tbsp blended into your smoothie will do the trick.
Bananas are a great low GI, nutrient dense fruit to add to your smoothie. Their slow releasing carbohydrates are perfect for long lasting energy. Try frozen bananas if you want that creamy thick texture.
A handful of spinach or kale in your smoothie can pack a punch of nutrients including B vitamins and iron. If you’re looking for that natural buzz blend through some fresh or frozen greens.
Need a little extra? Adding a shot of espresso or a teaspoon of instant coffee to your morning smoothie can give you that caffeine perk up and that delicious coffee flavour. We don’t recommend doing this in the afternoon or evening or your sleep could be affected.
Sometimes eating healthy can be a little expensive but we’ve got some hacks to help you make sure you can prioritise your health and steer clear from relying on fast food.
