I am a huge fan of making and drinking smoothies and juices; I have at least one a day! If you are anything like me and suck at eating your veggies and fruit, this is a great way to get your 5 a day without having to force feed yourself vegetables haha. Here are a few of my favourite recipes of the week which are super tasty and full of goodness. All you need are the right ingredients, a decent blender, ice and water. They make a great energising snack, accompany any meal, or are great for pre and apres surf regeneration…. Here are my top 5
Pre-Surf Energy: Banana, pineapple, mango, avocado. (Grab a handful of almonds with this and you’ll be surfing for hours!)
Iron Booster: Orange juice, carrot, spinach, beetroot, parsley. (Lemon grass is a great iron rich additive if you have it)
Apres surf/Protein boost: Banana, orange juice, soy protein powder
Skin, Hair and complexion: Avocado, spinach, banana, tbsp coconut oil, natural yoghurt. (If you have it, add spirulina to this mix which is filled with antioxidants)
Refreshing and light: Pineapple, parsley, cucumber, celery, orange
You can add honey as sweetener to any of the above!
These kind of juices are a fantastic way to get all your vitamin and mineral servings an easy, quick, simple glass. Plus they will make you feel amazing
