As per the title really. I’ve just recently rediscovered my smoothie machine as a healthy alternative for that mid morning hunger binge that i get every day, especially when i’m working. I want to try to avoid the biscuit tin and ‘bad food box’ (yep we have a box labelled up as that!).
At the moment i’m very much utilising the ‘stand at the fridge and cupboard, grab and chuck’ method.
Anyone have any good go-to recipes worth trying out. I think @Clive mentioned smoothies in another thread and how he really noticed a negative impact in their absence (i think it was you Clive).
Currently mine tend to roughly be:
couple of handfuls of soft fruit (depends what’s in the house: straw, rasp, banana, blue etc)
couple of dollops of greek yoghurt
milk (either dairy or non-dairy, depends what’s in stock)
oats/muesli/ready brek (anything to bulk it out a bit)
haha - i’ve used up the little packet of those now. I won’t be rushing to buy them again … but i wouldn’t say no if they were on offer in Lidl or something. In a smoothie you literally can’t even taste them (but i think you’d need a LOT to actually get a decent protein hit).
banana and frozen tropical fruit, with coconut milk (or/and coconut water) and cocoa (proper ground cocoa not cocoa powder) . or banana and frozen berries with spinach, maybe kale as well. coconut water adds natural electrolytes but ain’t cheap to bulk out a smoothie. I usually add spinach or kale into most, mainly so el nino eats greens without knowing and you cant taste it
