Simplify your Healthy Living with Smoothies

Do you love sweet things but really want to live a healthy lifestyle?

If you’re someone who dreams of donuts and slabs of fudge, your go-to healthy choice has to be the good old smoothie!  I have always had a serious sweet tooth.  I love fudge and cake and anything in between so finding a healthy alternative that I can enjoy is a major win for me.  Luckily for me I discovered smoothies! I swear I could hear the angels singing from up high!  A natural and easy choice to keep me on track, while still enjoying that glorious guilty pleasure that is sweetness, smoothies are a no-brainer.  So, it’s time to simplify your healthy living with smoothies!

Many of us are keen on living a healthier lifestyle but the daily grind just doesn’t allow it for us.  We rush off to school drop off and onwards to the rest of our day without taking a moment to nourish our bodies.  I am here to tell you that it only takes a few minutes out of your day to start a new, healthy habit.  Smoothies have to be the best way to start your day off on the right foot.  And, when you start your day off well it will put you one step ahead of the game.  Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy outlook.  So, let’s look at why I think smoothies are the way forward for busy Mum’s (and women in general) and how we can simplify your healthy living with smoothies.

The beauty of the smoothie is in the endless options.

Like bananas?  Chuck them in!  Like kiwi fruit?  Super high in vitamin C, chuck it in!  Then there’s the extras, the chia seeds or spirulina powders.  And….. news flash!  Spinach goodness does not need to ruin the taste!  How can you not love smoothies?!  If you are looking for a great start to the day, and an energy boost that doesn’t make you feel like you swallowed a lead balloon, then join me on the smoothie journey.

I like to keep a variety of choices available.  That way every morning I can pick and choose depending on my flavour mood of the day.  I usually have a big bowl of fresh fruit on my kitchen counter but I also have a variety of frozen fruit ready to grab and mix up with the fresh goodness.  So, wishing you were on a Caribbean Island?  Go for the pineapple, almond milk and bananas!  Or just missing summer?  Go for a lip-smacking blend of berries with a strawberry yoghurt and maybe some cranberry juice.  I love using a home made ice tea, my favourite flavour being blood orange.  Yum!
