Allison’s Morning Smoothie

Here are some tips for how to make the perfect smoothie!  I like to use a pick 4 method.  Pick a base and then choose something from each of the 4 categories – carbohydrate, protein, fat & fibre.  Below are my top choices for each category.

Base

Water or unsweetened almond or coconut milk (about 1 cup)

1.     Carbohydrate

Greens – kale, spinach

Fruit – ½ cup frozen berries,  ½ banana

Veggies – frozen cauliflower or zucchini

2.     Protein

Protein Powder (my go to flavour is vanilla)–  Designs for Health Pure Pea, Designs for Health Pure Paleo

3.     Fat

1 tbsp. nut butter, ¼ avocado

4.     Fibre

2 tbsp. chia or flax seeds

Here’s how I put it all together each morning:

Base – 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Carbohydrates – ½ cup frozen blueberries, 1 handful of baby spinach

Protein – Vanilla Protein powder (1 scoop) My favourite is Pure Pea

Fats – 1 tbsp. almond butter

Fibre – 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds

Add in – cinnamon

A smoothie should keep you satisfied and feeling full until lunchtime!
