Little bowl of green fluffy sunshine to match the actual sunshine outside☺️Love when the weather it’s like this, warm and not too hot, blue skies..it always helps to lift our mood, isn’t it?
For the creamy base, I blended a handful of lamb’s lettuce and baby lettuce with hazelnut milk, a small piece of fresh ginger, half a pear and half of a little avo, 2 tbsp of vanilla plant based protein, 1/2 tsp of green goodness blend, water and poured into a bowl topping it all with a nice dollop of chocolate coconut yogurt with a pinch of cinnamon mixed in, pear slices and crumbled pecans..yum😍I mean, pear, cacao, yogurt and nuts just go so well together that you can never go wrong☺️
Having a mix fruit and veggies containing fibre, fats, protein works well to have a meal that keeps you satisfied for longer..I’ve seen quite a few “rules” online on how to build the perfect smoothie and the thing is, perfect for who? Yes, definitely having a fruit only drink with some milk won’t keep you full for longer but it all depends on the individual and what makes the person feel good and satisfied. Some may do well with quite a bit of fruit paired with some greens, liquid and protein, others with more fats and protein and less dense fruits. Including more fibre, nuts and seeds and a source of protein will definitely have a positive effect on balancing your blood sugar levels and give you a steadier release of energy but the proportions are totally up to you and what you find works with your body experimenting from a base recipe and then maybe change one ingredient at a time. What are your favourite combinations and staple ingredients you always include in your smoothies? Perfectly fine if smoothies are not your thing too😉
Happy Wednesday!💚 #sweetnutrition
