His Majesty – the smoothie! I don’t know about you guys, but
Smoothies are an excellent replacement for breakfast as they include all the important nutrients and enough calories to keep you full till lunch. Here i am presenting a few uncommon healthy smoothie recipes, that are very easy to make and their taste is amazing! To make most of them
150 g blueberries,
150 g plums,
1 small apple,
20 – 30 g walnuts,
1 small spoon flax seeds,
100 g milk and
honey or any natural sweetener (as per your wish).
Calories: 370 kcal.
Put all the ingredients in your blender and mix it for 20-30 seconds.
I didn’t use too much honey, because
Why is awesome: Blueberries are the best-known source of antioxidants that keep your body cells from bad materials and prevent cancer. Also, they are a good source of vitamin B, C, E as well as fibre.
Plums, apple and flax seeds are very first defence in keeping your cells functioning as well as improving digestion.
Walnuts are having a good amount of vitamins E, B, Omega 3 and do a lot for the regeneration of brain cells.
1 small banana ( i always choose the one with dots, because it’s sweeter),
100 gr milk or soya milk,
20-30 grams of peanuts (or one tbsp of peanut butter),
one small spoon of coconut flour,
One scoop of protein shake (optional).
Calories: 450 kcal.
This is a protein “bomb”, as there are around 35 grams of protein who are important for muscle growth. The protein supplement is optional because in the rest of ingredients there is enough protein, but if you go to a gym or you are on a low-calorie diet you can feel free to add a protein shake.
Try this recip: Besides the protein, banana and milk are good sources of calcium and potassium – main minerals that your bones and teeth are made from. Peanuts and coconut flour are extremely rich in many essential nutrients: proteins, high-quality fats, minerals and vitamins. Honey keeps our immune system invulnerable and it’s also a very nice source of vitamin B.
100 g raspberries,
100 g beetroot,
100 g milk,
50 g carrots,
1 small apple
1 tbsp honey.
Mix everything for around one 1 minute or more because beetroot needs more time to be milled. This is low-calory yet very healthy smoothie recipe with only 260 kcal.
Why is good: Beetroot is loaded with vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese and many more. There are all vitamins from B group which are all important regeneration of our skin, hair as well as saving nerves. Vitamin C in the beet helps building red blood cells, improves circulation so it is recommended to people suffering from anaemia.
Raspberries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants which are main protection in preventing inflammation processes in our body helping cells to regenerate. Raspberries consist good amount of fibre making our digestion working smoothly. They are low in calories thus very popular in diets.
Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, potassium and in antioxidants that make our skin look younger and well protected. Carrots are good at lowering cholesterol and improving our eyesight and teeth.
Honey is the best antibacterial, antivirus therapy helping our immune system to remain a well protected and amazing source of many other good vitamins and minerals. If you are lactose intolerant then a good replacement for milk is soya milk in making this smoothie.
Choco-smoothie is very healthy smoothie recipe with a taste of dark chocolate which is one of my favourite recipes.
1 medium frozen banana,
20 g peanuts or one spoon peanut butter
150 g soya milk

Calories: 350 kcal.
Mix everything together around 1 min.

Honey is the main food for immune system protection and helps wounds to heal faster. Soya milk (unsweetened) is rich in proteins, iron and other significant minerals and vitamins.
Peanuts contain a lot of proteins and minerals improving the cardiovascular system. Pure cacao is also rich in materials that help our cells to function well. Thanks to a large number of antioxidants in cacao regular use of it prevent cancer and inflammatory diseases by enhancing our immune system.
Healthy smoothie recipes for glorious beauty
Making smoothies is very fun as you can experiment with the ingredients changing the taste every time. I don’t support strict diets as it is important for our physical and mental health to eat all food categories (proteins, carbs, fat) but
Consuming healthy smoothies frequently, I’ve never had skin problems like pimples because my skin is good hydrated and nurtured from inside. Yes, its truth- beauty comes from within, which means that we have to take care of our body as the best friend and to bring food that can only benefit us. Cheers!
