Blitzing, Blending, Shaking like a Ninja! My Top 5 Smoothie/Shake Creations

Happy Monday everyone!

In true Meal Prep Monday style, I thought I’d do a little foodie themed blog today based on buying a new little kitchen gadget! If anyone knows me, they know I’m a sucker for new gadgets, especially if they’re food or fitness related!

With my Nutri Ninja in pride position on my kitchen counter top, I wanted to share my Top 5 favourite smoothie/juice creations with you!

  1. Chocolate and Raspberry Protein Shake 

This one was made up by accident! But no surprises about chocolate and raspberries working so well! I love that you get that bite of sweetness through the smooth chocolate – perfect to mix up your protein shake as a post workout pick me up…

150ml Almond Milk

1 scoop Chocolate Protien Whey

1 Banana

Handful of Frozen Raspberries

Palmful of Mixed Nuts

2. The “I blizted my breakfast bowl” Shake

So basically, I put my morning porridge bowl in the blender! And it WORKED! Well, without the bowl of course… Don’t get too carried away now…

150ml Almond Milk

1 scoop Oats (30g)

1 Banana

1-2 tsp Peanut Butter

Cinnamon

Honey

Chia Seeds (optional)

3. Berry Creamy Smoothie

I love avocados – and sometimes I find it hard to get the balance right when I put it in smoothies, but this sweet one works!

150ml Almond milk

1/2 ripe avocado

3 tbsp Greek Yogurt

Handful of frozen blueberries

Handful of frozen blackberries

Juice of 2 limes

1tbsp honey to sweeten

4. The Fresh One

Carrot and Orange is one of my favourite juice combos, but adding a little tropical fruit and coconut water to this brings something that tastes like summer in a glass…

1/2 orange

Handful of Frozen Mango

Handful of Frozen Pineapple

Handful of Frozen Strawberries

150ml Coconut water

5. The Green One

Green smoothies are known for being hit or miss… it’s all about getting the balance right… This one has been tried and tested, so I can assure you, it’s a hit!
