Protein Smoothie

We live by smoothies here, infact we have one for breakfast everyday. Somedays we have them for lunch too and I've even had them for dinner on nights I don't feel like cooking!  Packed full of goodies they can have anything you like in them and they fill you up for hours.

Suggested Ingredients:
  • Banana
  • Pears
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Grapes (frozen grapes rock!!!)
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Paw Paw
  • really just about any fruit!  We prefer pre-frozen so its nice and cold (see my tip about freezing)
  • Yoghurt (again pre-frozen)
  • LSA
  • All Bran (good for increasing fibre intake)
  • Protein Powder (helps keep you fuller)
  • Oats
  • Chocolate chips (if you feeling like a treat)
  • Almond meal
  • Milk - almond, rice, skim (any of your choice)
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Psyllium Husk
  • Slipper Elm 
Good thing about smoothies is the list is endless, you can make whatever you like, no real rules involved.  Just add whatever extras you like to chock it full of healthy goodness like grains and powders!  I'm a bit strange and keep my veggies for juices as I don't like idea of green veggies in a milky smoothie...  each to their own!

ENJOY!  :-)
