healthy shake

A Naturopaths breakfast

I love my shakes for Breakfast and I've recently been asked what I put in them. Well, this changes every day but I thought I'd share a few of my standard favourites.

My Detox Smoothie above was delicious (don't be put off by the colour, you can't really taste the spirulina). It was made from:

  • 250ml Coconut milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana (peel before freezing)
  • 1 teaspoon enterocare powder (a probiotic and slippery elm supplement)
  • 1.5 scoops Thermophase detox powder (a protein powder which also helps with liver detoxification)
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder
  • Cinnamon on top

It was so yummy and kept me full until lunch time.

Sometimes if I'm in a rush I'll just have protein powder (at the moment I'm using rice protein) with almond, hazelnut or coconut milk or sometimes just with water.

This morning I skipped the protein powder and just had a Green Banana Smoothie:

  • 250ml Almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 teaspoon enterocare
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina
  • 1/2 tablespoon flaxseeds
  • 1 teaspoon avocado (makes it really creamy)
  • Cinnamon

Sometimes I'll add berries too but I pretty much always have frozen banana because it tastes yum and makes it nice and cold.

Feel free to share with me some of your favourite smoothie ingredients.
