HEALTHY BERRY SMOOTHIE; FULL OF GOODNESS

Follow my blog with Bloglovin



This is the second day I have made this smoothie for breakfast and I really love it. 
I've made one similar ages ago but I have done a few things different this time.
This smoothie is really filling so is a great breakfast option, it includes everything you need to start you off for a good day. 

SPINACH - (one handful) 

It's great to add some greens to your smoothie and Spinach is a good source of fibre and has lots of vitamins. 

PROTEIN POWDER - (one level scoop) 

I chose to add Vanilla whey to mine which I get from MyProtein.com
It's good to get some protein in at breakfast, its very filling and helps to build and repair muscle tissue, especially important if you regularly workout :-) I have some discount codes if you buy anything from them, for a new customer - 15% off use code: CCXX15, returning customers - 8% off use code CCXX8 - Click Here.

MILK (Just added a guessed amount)

I use Unsweetened Almond Milk which is great because there are no added sugars or sweeteners, it's all plant based and low in fat.

ACAI BERRY POWDER - (About a tea spoon) 

This is 100% organic and it has so many benefits to it including high in antioxidants, high in vitamins and balances blood cholesterol levels, click here to see more about it. 

CHIA SEEDS - (About a tea spoon) 

I also love to add chia seeds into my smoothies. It gives you a boost of omega 3, fibre and protein. It's also loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 

PEANUT BUTTER - (About a table spoon) 

I have a massive tub from My Protein. I have a favourite peanut butter that I love getting from Asda at the moment BUT this big tub is great to use if I'm baking or making smoothies :-) Don't forget you can get money off using my code: CCXX15 and CCXX8. They have loads of deals on the website so go have a look; click here

FROZEN RASPBERRIES - (A handful) 

Frozen raspberries are great for in smoothies. I always make sure I have some in the freezer as I sometimes use them in my yoghurt too. They contain strong antioxidants that can help fight against cancer.

FROZEN BLUEBERRIES - (A handful) 

I added these to mix it up a bit and I had recently put some in the freezer. These are one of the healthiest berries so I love using them. They also help to prevent heart disease and lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

To finish it off, I added about 4-6 ice cubes and blended it all together. I didn't weigh out any ingredients, I just guessed at what I thought looked a good amount!

Let me know if you try this?
