Weight loss Smoothie

SMOOTHIES are a great way to pack in extra fruit and vegetables into your diet.

My #FUNKY5 smoothies are a popular drink because they can be made with almost any fruit and vegetable. They are really popular in the morning, with my clients and by adding a #FUNKY5 smoothie to your daily diet is a great way to get more nutrients into your diet and help you shed those stubborn pounds.

Smoothies, are full of nutrients and aid weight loss as they can help you feel fuller for longer. Smoothies which are high in protein could also boost your metabolism, which can help with your weight loss efforts, as the higher your metabolism, the more calories you will burn at rest.

Smoothie bowls are thick, delicious smoothies that you can eat with a spoon. Delicious enough to be dessert, these treats are perfect for breakfast and snacks, with a variety of ingredients you can create your own one-of-a-kind smoothie bowl. Packed with antioxidants and nutrients, smoothie bowls often include less sugar than other desserts and can be topped with any number of fruits and nuts.

Smoothies

I love smoothies. Smoothies can be a great way to boost your intake of fruits and vegetables — they’re a nutritious snack that you can enjoy for breakfast, afternoon break, or whenever you need a pick-me-up.

Fruit and vegetable smoothies are a great way to provide nutrition to the number of people who struggle to consume enough fruit and vegetables each day. They can be ready-to-drink or made at home, so are a good alternative to shop-bought smoothies that often contain a high amount of sugar.

The nutritional value of a smoothie can change drastically based on the specific ingredients used to make it. 

That is where my #funky5 smoothies come in. Each smoothie is designed to contain all the ingredients you need to have a balanced and healthy drink.

Kids Smoothies

Blended smoothies are a great way to get healthy, wholesome whole food into children. Parents can quickly and easily add fruit or vegetable juices to their smoothie drinks without disturbing the fibre in the drink. Unlike juicing, blending fruits and vegetables into a smoothie retains the whole food, which leaves the fibre intact.

Kids can get many nutrients from a blended smoothie. They don’t have to chew and swallow one spoonful at a time — therefore, they may eat too much of the blended smoothie. This is where parents benefit from blending their own smoothies. With small amounts of fruit and vegetables blended in a large amount of liquid, kids can easily consume all the nutrients that they would get from eating each fruit or vegetable separately.

My #funky5 kids smoothie recipes will help you get your little ones having more fruit and vegetables in no time.

Benefits of Drinking Smoothies

Hydration

Drinking the recommended 6-8 glasses of water can seem daunting but with smoothies, you’re already part of the way there. We can get some of our water intake from our food and this includes smoothies, not least because lots of fruits and vegetables are quite rich in water.

Stay Fuller for Longer

If you find yourself snacking because you never feel full, the fibre in fruit or veg based smoothies could be your new best friend! Avocado is one example of a smoothie that will leave you sated until lunchtime and curb your urge to snack and you only need half an avocado to get its benefits.

Reduce Cravings

I’ve talked about the fact that smoothies help you to feel fuller and the knock on effect of this is that you’ll have far fewer cravings for snacks and junk food. For example, drinking a protein rich smoothie to start the day is the perfect way to stop cravings and keep your appetite in check until your next meal. This will help a lot with your goal of being in shape!

Better Digestion

Have you tried “Green smoothies”? This is the kind of smoothies were you blend fresh leafy green vegetables like spinach, kale, celery or collard. These greens in particular are alkaline foods so they are your best bet to counteract the discomfort of acid reflux and heartburn.

Boost Your Immunity

Fruits and vegetables are a great source of nutrients and antioxidants for good health but some are proven to increase your immunity. Adding sweet potato to your smoothies isn’t just a way to make them taste nice; the beta-carotene that they contain is an immunity booster.
