3 Delicious Summer Smoothies

Here are 3 Delicious Summer Smoothies because summer is here.  Well at least for most of us and that usually means lighter, fresher and cooler food. I do smoothies all year, but the summer just encourages a nice cool smoothie! Here is a short post with some summer smoothie recipes which will help you nourish, cleanse and tone up your body….

* Add protein, spirulina, greens (kale, spinach), etc… to any you see fit 

Coconut Berry Smoothie

  • 200 ml of coconut water
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 100 g of frozen mixed berries
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp if grated ginger

Hemp Banana Almond Smoothie

  • 200ml of coconut milk/water (use coconut drinking milk, not the canned stuff…)
  • 2 tbsp’s of hemp protein
  • banana
  • 1 tsp organic almond/nut butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Post Workout Smoothie

  • 200ml (I use Raw Milk) coconut water will also do the job 
  • 1 tsp of almond butter
  • 1 tbsp of Hemp seeds
  • 100g frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbsp of powdered protein (whey prefered – this is optional though!)

So there are 3 easy recipes  The first one is a good post endurance or sports drink – something to have after a long run or when you have played sports – the coconut water will help replace electrolytes, the avocado with all of its nourishing fats and vitamin E will speed recovery and the berries, ginger will soothe and ease inflammation.

The second smoothie – hemp banana and almond is a great breakfast mix. Something to make when you are on the go – its ingredients are satisfying, and the mix of protein, cinnamon, nut and banana make it very tasty. Whilst cleansing your digestive tract and keeping blood sugar stable for hours!

The final smoothie is a post workout mix – it is higher in protein and calories and great for after an intense weight session or any workout for that matter. The coconut oil will help digestion and speed your metabolism  whilst the hemp and almond butter will add some calories needed for muscle growth and recovery.
