2 Smoothies to Rock Your Socks!

I know I go on a lot about smoothies but that’s because they’ve made SUCH a difference in my life and have sorted out so many digestive issues for me, plus, they’re the BEST way to get nutrients into your body in the best possible way – nothing chews your food like a blender, and the more chewed your food is, the healthier and happier your gut 🙂

Some people haven’t taken to smoothies but that’s mostly because they haven’t tried one that tastes really good.  So today I want to share two recipes with you that are REALLY good!

First up is my Chocolate Thick Shake:

Flaxseeds have a multitude of nutritious benefits, and have been linked to lowering your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes (plus my Nan who has just turned 98 swears by them!)  Cacao powder has over 40 times the antioxidants than blueberries.  And don’t forget the goodness of avocado… our bodies thrive on this good fat plus it creates a beautiful thickness.

8 ounces almond milk
½ cup crushed ice
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon raw honey
½ avocado
2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 tablespoon golden flaxseed (I grind these fresh myself to ensure the goodness is broken up but you can also buy them already ground).

Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  Sprinkle some chia seeds on if you like – they add a delicious crunch plus they’re SO good for you!

Second up is my Green Goddess Smoothie

This smoothie is a great way to get raw kale or spinach into your body – personally, it’s the only way I can eat those leaves raw 🙂

Try and add smoothies to your daily diet – I promise you’ll feel better for it and it’s what we do every day that counts.
