    Default Smoothie recipes

    Decided to start having more fruit and veg packed smoothies but need ones I can prepare and freeze in baggies (or containers) ahead of time during my weekly meal prep so throw at me your fav pre prepped and frozen smoothie combos (also what liquids and sweeteners you add in at blending time) also keep in mind I will probably be throwing in a bit of protein powder in them either unflavoured, choc or vanilla

    I usually do fruit. And I make it with frozen fruit over fresh (easier and cheaper).

    Coles/Woolies have heaps of frozen fruit which work. I just throw in 1 or 2 different fruit with banana (which is frozen).

    Liquid is coconut milk, coconut water or almond milk. Depending what I feel like at the time. I usually don't throw in a sweetener. If I did it was honey (I have rice malt syrup now which I will try out). You can also add cacao to make it chocolate.

    I usually only add spinach as my veg to smoothies. I find fresh is easier than frozen though.

    You can add greek yoghurt too (frozen in cubes) for protein too if you want.

    I do notice that you get less flavour from frozen v fresh.

    Mango for example is much more flavourful ifyou use fresh mango rather than frozen.

    However - some fruits are just as good.

    I add rasberries to every smoothie as it makes it a gorgeous inviting pink colour, and gives it a bit of tang.

    Otherwise - apple, banana (makes it creamy), nectarine, peach, orange, pinapple, .... any combination (usually I use 3 plus rasberry)

    icecream, yoghurt or frozen sorbet are all great in them - and I rarely use sweetener as fruit is generally sweet enough.

    I've been making dh smoothies for breakfast as he usually goes without.

    So far I've made:

    Strawberry, blueberry, Greek yoghurt, oats and milk

    Strawberry, baby spinach, oats and Greek yoghurt

    Baby spinach, avocado, cacao, Greek yoghurt, oats and blueberries

    Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, pats, Greek yoghurt and baby spinach.

    I use the Greek yoghurt for protein but would like to use a protein powder too - what brand do you use @twinklify?

    I add the oats for fibre.

    I freeze ripe bananas, mangoes, pineapple , kiwi and strawberries in ice cube portions and keep in a zip lock freezer bag , I love really cold smoothies so prefer frozen fruit so it's icy cold plus I blitz in the Nutri bucket blanched baby spinach or kale with coconut water and also freeze into ice cubes
    I add either lsa, chia seeds, goji berries , oats and sometimes Greek or plain yogurt
    our fav at the moment is a blueberry muffin smoothie which is:
    1 cup frozen blueberries
    2 cubes spinach
    1/3 frozen banana
    2 tablespoons yogurt
    1/2 packet organic oats
    Sprinkle chia seeds
    1-1/2 cups a2 or almond milk and blitz in Nutri bullet

    For protein?

    DH is the one that uses the protein powder. Usually greek yoghurt is enough for me. Apparently Chobani has the most protein.

    Anyway, unless you want to avoid dairy/soy in your protein powder then we use Musashi atm.

    Pretty much look for how many grams of protein per serve. This one has 30g. Some have less.

    If you do not want to go into one of the supplement stores have a look online and compare the protein in the description.

    Also, if you have a green smoothie avoid dairy in it and add vit c (berries) to help iron absorption.
