Berrynilla Smoothie

Smoothies! Yay! They’re simple, easy to make AND nutritious. They are a fantastic way of refueling after a workout and getting vital nutrients and minerals when you are on the go.  Everyone today seems to be extremely busy so they resort to prepackaged meals or … yes… I said it… TAKE AWAY! Why bother wasting your money when you can make something that tastes good, suits your needs and it’s quicker and essentially cheaper than take away. I know it might be more satisfying for some to gorge on a large fries and burger but please people… experiment more with the amazing food that we have on offer and nourish and love your body. You only get one…

Here is a super tasty smoothie that I am sure most of you will love. It’s always a great idea to have a smoothie post work-out or after you have been fasting for a few days. When it comes to liquid meals the nutrient absorption is enhanced which helps when recovering from a workout or post fasting.

Makes: 750mls – 1L
Serves: 2 people

Equipment:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk or chia bran
  • 1 banana
  • 6 strawberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp maqui powder
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder. I used Bare Blends. You can use any protein powder that suits your needs and dietary requirements. Please note that it will alter the taste.
  • Ice

Method

  1. Soak the psyllium husk or chia bran in the water and let it thicken. This usually takes around 10 minutes.
  2. Place this mixture in your 2L Wet Container along with the banana, berries, cinnamon, maqui, coconut oil, protein powder and ice and secure your lid.
  3. Turn onto variable speed 1 and then quickly up to variable speed 10 and override to HIGH speed.
  4. Blend until you have a nice smooth consistency. If you find it too thick just add some more water.

Note: Add a heap of ice to it to make a BerryNilla Sorbet! Genius! Garnish with extra berries and coconut flakes or a nice green mint sprig if you want to your #instagram feed looking flash 😉

Make sure you use a good quality high powered blender to ensure a smooth and creamy blend every time! We can’t go past the Vitamix.

Happy Blending!
