5 smoothie recipes

A regular smoothie can be a delicious way to scale up your health and further support your body’s natural healing ability. You can easily swap your evening meal for a smoothie (or a hot or cold soup). I’ve covered intermittent fasting in previous blogs, sipping on 2 litres of our Rejuv Wellness Water all day and swapping your breakfast for one of our six green juices, with less than 40 calories so that it won’t break your fast.

Next week I’ll share some soup recipes, but today you’ll get my favourite smoothie recipes! You can swap your lunch or dinner for one of these smoothies. You might choose to do this once a week as part of a ‘Meatless Monday‘ to cleanse after the weekend or do it for a week or a month as a cleanse to detox and drop a few extra pounds.

However you choose to use these smoothies, they will take the pressure off your digestive system, support detox and nourish your 11 body systems, giving you more time to repair instead of digesting three meals a day.

It is always best to have your smoothie 3 – 4 hours before bed and any meal for that matter (especially salads or big raw meals, for they are super healthy but not great late at night).

Why Smoothies are Great for Your Health

Smoothies are great for your health because they are loaded with fruits and vegetables, so they are high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. Fibre is excellent to help you feel full and detox and cleanse your colon and digestive system. Fibre also acts as a wonderful natural prebiotic that is great for gut health and boosts your immune system.

The idea here is to inundate your system with pure nutrition from plants and keep your protein and essential fats up so you feel mentally and physically strong. That is why my smoothies have balanced macronutrients, so you feel full, and you also get fast safe results.

Eating this way will not only reset your system but your taste buds too! After only a few days, you will start to crave healthier foods, for the more good nutritious food you feed your gut, the more good bacteria grows, making you crave more healthy foods. If you then treat and eat processed or rich foods, you will feel sluggish and bloated, so you are motivated to go back to healthy options.

My clients always comment how their body gives up certain foods, and certain foods lose power over them. Listen to your body, and it will tell you what it wants to eat by how it feels 30 minutes after eating. Foods either make you feel strong or weak – it is as simple as that.

Don’t Like the Green Smoothie Taste?

If you don’t like the taste of anything “green”, try starting with baby spinach, for it has virtually no flavour and will naturally boost your metabolism. You won’t even know it’s in your smoothie. All you will taste is the fruit. As you become accustomed to the spinach, try swapping half of it for kale or bok choy, adding more of the new greens and less of the spinach until your taste buds start to enjoy your unique flavours.

Mix & Match Protein Powders in Your Smoothie Recipe

I add a protein powder to all my smoothies to ensure I get all of my daily essential amino acids and to support my blood sugar levels. Hence, I feel strong mentally and physically, so I don’t get ‘hangry!’. I gave the option of all five protein powders I have formulated, but you can mix and match based on your preferences. I also use plant milk and water base to boost the protein levels further.
