Super Smoothie Recipes

Teresa Cutter, the healthy chef and Body Science ambassador,, gives us her top smoothie recipes.

In the mornings, I’m often pulling out the blender and blending up a power packed smoothie for my breakfast. It’s a great convenient way of getting the ultimate vitamin, carb and protein hit.

All you need is great ingredients and a good powerful blender like a vitamix to whiz them up, then you’re on your way to rock and roll.
For a colder, thicker, yummier smoothie freeze some of your fruit first before blending.

For your liquid component use water, juice or low fat milk and for extra fiber and Vitamin E make your own almond milk by blending ½ cup of almonds and 1 liter of water. Add in a scoop of your favorite protein powder and essential fatty acids by adding a tbsp of ground linseed. The final touch… a squeeze of honey and a dash of vanilla and ground cinnamon to stabilize blood sugar levels.

Here are my top three Smoothies – perfect for a filling meal or snack, or topping up your energy levels after you’ve worked up a sweat:

Mover and Shaker Smoothie

1 banana
1 young coconut, juice and flesh
1 serve Body Science WPI powder
1 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
Pinch cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a blender.
Banana blended with WPI, young coconut, tahini + cinnamon + ice. Young coconut water acts like an electrolyte helps hydrate your cells, transport energy, speeds up metabolic rate and boosts circulation.

Strawberry Power Smoothie

150 g frozen strawberries
1 cup (250 ml) water or low fat milk
2 tablespoons natural low fat yoghurt
1 scoop Body for Women Mixed Berries protein powder
1 tbsp flaxseed oil
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.
The berries are packed with a whopping amount of antioxidants + combined with strawberry protein provides you with all the amino acids needed to boost the immune system, repair muscle tissue and maximize fat loss.

Breakfast Smoothie

1 cup (250 ml) water or low fat milk
1 ripe pear, chopped
2-heaped tablespoons rolled oats
1 scoop Body Science Hydroxy-Burn Pro Caramel Flavour
2 tablespoons natural low fat yoghurt
1 tablespoon LSA (linseed – sunflower seed – almond)
Ice to blend

Combine everything into a blender and blend until combined and creamy. Pour into a glass and enjoy. The caramel flavoured Hydroxy Burn Pro formula combined with the LSA, pear + oatmeal provides the body with a terrific low fat source of high quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids needed for growth immunity and repair. This smoothie will also tame your hunger pains and stop you chowing down on a Krispy Krème mid morning.
