A real food smoothie is the perfect breakfast or snack option. They’re quick and easy to make and you can enjoy them on the run. You can even prep or prepare your smoothies in advance and store in the fridge so you always have a healthy snack or breakfast option available. All of my smoothies contain protein to ensure satiety and keep you feeling fuller for longer.


When you’re hungry or craving sweets it is actually your body asking for protein. So when you get the 3pm sweet craving, eat some good quality protein.When purchasing your protein powder look for a brand that contains natural protein powder with no added nasties, fillers, sugar, artificial sweeteners, colour or flavours.

You should also ensure it’s gluten-free and contains high protein. Read the label and ask questions! These smoothie recipes serve 1 and take 10 minutes to prepare. Simply place all ingredients into your blender and process until well combined. You can serve the smoothies in a glass or in a bowl to enjoy with a spoon.
