I do love a good fruit smoothie, but to be honest, like most other things, you’re better off making your own at home. I honestly find myself researching food, the breakdown of different types and the effects that it has on our bodies so much lately. It fascinates me! I think it’s down to seeing how my body got physically leaner when I ate more carbs and fats and didn’t go so heavy on the synthetic protein powder. The more I started to understand about what my body needs and when, was when I started to put less and less fruit into my homemade smoothies. These were a real staple in my diet. Obviously this was a change among a lot of others!
- Oats. Depending on whether I’m training or not, I’ll add 55g or else 30g. Oats make your smoothie so creamy and thick
- Post workout I add a frozen banana, this will literally give you an ice cream consistency…
- 1 teaspoon of cacao
- Flavor drops from My Protein, I usually just go with toffee or vanilla
- Unflavored soy protein powder – 2 scoops post workout, 1 scoop otherwise.
- A tablespoon of nut butter (drooling) – if anyone has tried White Chocolate Nuts n More, you’ll know its hard to not add about 5 tablespoons haha
- 30g of frozen berries
- Some water or milk, usually water these days because I can never physically carry the almond milk in one go home with me from the supermarket, they are HUGE!
- I always try to add some superfood blend of some kind to make sure my immune system is on it’s A game at all times. I also always take a variety of multivitamins every dayPhotos by Edelle Kenny
This was just a short and sweet post, after I got a few questions on Snapchat (niamhos21) about my post workout smoothie. Look at me being all popular and getting asked questions for once 😀
Have a super day,
