RECIPE: The All-Day Smoothie


I'm sure you are aware how obsessed I am at the moment with smoothies. I love my 'ESS' Green Smoothie especially at breakfast time, however, some days I just need another 'pick me up'.

My all-day smoothie though is fast becoming my new favourite. When I'm at work it can be very easy to grab unhealthy snacks mid-afternoon if I get really hungry. Plus I only have literally around 5 minutes in between clients (if that!) so I need to have something that's nice and quick and can allow me to carry on with my afternoon.

Why not try this smoothie recipe to give you a pick me up in the afternoon - or even the morning...


What you will need...

  • 300ml filtered water

  • 3 tablespoons of organic oats

  • 1 teaspoon of organic chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter

  • 1 serving of probiotic powder

  • 1 serving of organic, vegan protein powder

  • 1 sachet of skinade OR 1/2 teaspoon of matcha powder

  • 2 large handfuls of organic spinach (you can't taste it!)

  • 1/4 cup of frozen fruit - I am in LOVE with the M & S Tropical Frozen Fruit in individual packets

Method:

  • Well, there isn't one really! Just blitz it all together! I would say if you don't have a powerful blender, then blitz everything except the fruit first, then add it afterwards.

  • Drink over a course of 20-30 minutes to allow your body to digest it properly. If you drink it too fast, your body doesn't recognise it as food and thinks it's a drink. The problem with this is that it will be digested too quickly and then you won't feel full from it.

Hope you enjoy,
