Breakfast healthy smoothie recipe
Easy to drink, and easy to digest, this breakfast smoothie will fill you up and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Made with milk as a base, it is up to you whether you go dairy or non-dairy. With added protein powder for a creamier texture and extra amino acids, again you can choose whether to go dairy or plant-based. Banana is the ideal fruit for breakfast, particularly in a smoothie where it blends into creamy sweetness. Not just about flavour though, banana packs a punch in the nutrient department with resistant starch for blood sugar control and plenty of heart-healthy potassium. Oats deliver that all important carbohydrate energy, but in the slow-release form of beta-glucan.
Throw in some maca powder for its magical powers and add in a dash of flax for fibre. By the way, did you know that both of these superfoods helps to balance hormones? Yeap. And that is just as relevant for men as it is for women.
To make this recipe you will need…
2 cups milk, dairy or non-dairy
1 banana, frozen in chunks or 1 tbsp banana powder
1/3 cup oats
1 tbsp maca powder
1/4 cup raw almonds
1 tbsp flax powder or LSA mix
For the garnish
Drizzle of honey
1 tbsp bee pollen
And now for the method…
There’s only 3 steps.
- Garnish with bee pollen and a drizzle of honey
Fresh ginger is a powerful ingredient, one that in the quest for optimal nutrition you will want to include in your repertoire of superfood smoothie ingredients.
A powerful antioxidant, in recent years ginger has been somewhat eclipsed by its carotene cousin turmeric. But ginger has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years and can help with everything from fighting the common cold to controlling blood sugar.
One of the best ways to benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger is to pack it into juices and smoothies. A one-a-day must, especially in the winter months, ginger shots are a handy way to make the most of ginger. Boosted with superfood powders, simply stirred in, they are an essential addition to your nutritional arsenal.
Essential smoothie ingredients – ginger
Making a range of healthy ginger shots is quick and easy. It is up to you whether you choose to juice your ginger, or blitz it in a blender; we use a blender and trap the inevitable fibres in a sieve. There are so many flavours you could add to your ginger shots, all with additional nutritional benefits of their own, but we have used apple, lemon and pomegranate respectively. Boost the recipes with additional superfood powders, to make a green shot for instance. A quick way to get your daily dose of superfoods.
Three easy ginger shot recipes
To make 3 x 60ml ginger shots you will first need to make a batch of ginger juice. Once the pulp is sieved away you can then stir in additional juices, plus superfood boosters if you wish.
To prepare the ginger juice in a blender, blitz 200g peeled ginger together with 120 ml water. Press the resulting liquid through a sieve (use the pulp in stir fries and other dishes; it may not be as potent but still a good source of flavour and fibre). You should yield 120ml ginger juice. Clearly you can make more if you wish, to prepare an infinite number of shots, but do bear in mind that after 48 hours the quality of your juice will begin to deteriorate.
