Delicious Detox Smoothies

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for a number of reasons; it ‘breaks the fast’ we have had overnight, signaling our metabolism to start burning fat and calories again. And breakfast also sets the tone of the entire day.

The healthier your breakie, the more likely you will have a day full of healthy choices. While skipping breakfast or choosing a high carb, unhealthy one, encourages us to crave and eat higher sugar foods to keep our energy up.

So here are few quick and easy smoothies, which are high protein, some carbs, rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals and all natural, not just great for breakie but as snacks too.

Use your Vitamix or other blender to whip these all into a smooth consistency.

 

Strawberry smoothie: Milk of choice, 6 strawberries, 1 tbs. raw honey, 1 tbs. LSA, 1 scoop of Natural protein powder.

 

Raw Cacao Smoothie: Rice, quinoa or almond milk, 2 tsp. raw cacao, ½ tsp. Synergy super greens powder, 1 tbs. raw honey.

 

Banana smoothie: Milk of choice, 1 ripe banana, 1 tbs. raw honey, 1 scoop natural vanilla protein powder, ½ tbs. LSA, ½ tbs. Oat bran.

Use full cream milk, skim, lite, rice, soy, and quinoa or almond milk as base.

 

1/2 tbs. oatmeal = slow burning carb for long lasting energy.

 

1tbs. lecithin granules= Cholesterol lowering, brain function, protein.

 

1 tbs. LSA powder= (Linseed, sunflower and almond meal)=Healthy fats for skin, hair and nails. Keeps you regular to the bathroom, high in protein.

 

1/2 tsp. green food (chlorella, spirulina, or barley grass)=These are like having the nutritional equivalent to a big bucket of veggies, great for energy, high protein, keeps you full, slightly detoxing and analyzing. Synergy is one of my favourite brands.

 

1 tbs. honey, Maple syrup or agave=to sweeten if needed, extra fuel for energy.

 

1 tsp. raw cacao powder= Raw cacao is how chocolate coco is before being processed, so is still a chocolate powder but contains many more minerals, vitamins and antioxidants for boosting health, energy and much more.

 

Shake and serve. Great for a quick breakfast or a snack in between meals.

 

-Optional=Can blend in banana, mango, and berries to make it more nutritious.
