Grey Berry Smoothie

Ok I know the colour is absolute yuk…but not all of my smoothies come out in beautiful pastel colours! lol! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Super easy to make, simply blend all of the ingredients in the list and add in some of your own if you wish.

Ingredients

Handful of Blueberries

A few tbsp of live coconut yoghurt

A tbsp of Cacao Powder

Banana

A tsp of Super Mushroom powder (you could add in a Superfood Mushroom supplement of choice)

Chia Seeds

A splash of almond milk and Water

This is a super nutritious blend combined together.ย  Check out some of the links below for further research and information on these superfoods.

Cacao Powder

Cacao powder is chocolate in its raw and natural state, its super nutritious.ย  Click below for access to a really interesting article on the benefits of Cacao Powder.ย  There is loads of information online regarding the health benefits of Cacao, I would recommend doing further research in this area.ย  You can also make your own Raw healthy Chocolate with cacao powder…yes chocolate can be healthy.ย  You can buy Cacao Powder in the supermarket but I find its better value to buy it in bulk.ย  Check out the brand below for a high quality raw product.

Super Mushroom Powder

I use a blend from Indigo Herbs, I absolutely love their products and find their powders deep in colour and very high quality.ย  They are a Uk company.ย  I’ve added a link to the super mushroom powder that I use below.ย  There are instructions provided with how much to take, do your research and go easy, its very powerful!

I used some Lemon Coconut yoghurt to make this awesome and super quick fruit salad with chia seeds and walnuts.ย  Me and the boys shared this after lunch and it was divine!

Ingredients

Chopped up fruit of choice

Coconut flavoured yoghurt or other dairy free yoghurt

Chia Seeds

Chopped nuts of choice

Maple Syrup (optional)

Basically all you need to do is chop up all of the fruit you wish to use and top with the yoghurt, sprinkle with some chia seeds and chopped nuts of choice and its ready to serve!ย  You could also drizzle a little maple syrup over the top if you wish for that sweet tooth family member.

They are pretty easy to purchase in most supermarkets these days.ย  I bought mine from Tesco but you can get them online also.ย  Click below to buy them in bulk.ย  I find this particular bulk option is cheaper and obviously lasts a lot longer.

Beetroot Juice

I made a really simple organic beetroot juice this morning!ย  It was divine!ย  This was a great choice for me to drink before my Step Aerobics, I felt so strong and energetic after this powerful antioxidant packed juice!

(I did share this massive glass with the kids)ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients:

4 Beetroots

1 whole pack of celery

2 lemons

2 large pieces of tumeric root

4 carrots

4 apples

beetrootjuice

Chop all the pieces and put through the juicer, it sometimes helps to add the softer items with the hard.ย  Drink immediately or store in a tightly sealed jar.ย  Check out some of the awesome ingredients below.

Tumeric is a powerful ingredient and is thought to be a great anti inflammatory.ย  You can purchase it in powder format but if your juicing it I would recommend getting the fresh root.ย  I’ve included some links for the powder and the root format, you can use both in smoothies but I would personally recommend the fresh for juicing.ย  You can also juice with a little pineapple to create an awesome tumeric shot! ๐Ÿ˜€

Tumeric Roots

FRESH TURMERIC ROOTS 250g

Tumeric Powder

Beetroot is also thought to help the body in a variety of ways during exercise.ย  I have included a link to a good blog post I have read for some further research you may wish to read.ย  https://www.endurancesportsnutritionist.co.uk/blog/using-beetroot-juice-to-boost-endurance-sports-performance/
