Breakfast Smoothies

Today I am sharing three of the most popular smoothie recipes from my Conquer Your Cravings programme. These smoothies are super-quick to prepare, make fantastic breakfasts and are a great way to get your day off to a flying start. You can also take the left overs in a wide necked water bottle as a portable snack for later in the morning.

For each smoothie, blend all the ingredients in a Vitamix, other high-speed blender, or normal standup blender. If needed, add water to reach your desired thickness. Use organic produce whenever possible.

Starting the day off with a good serving of protein is important  – particularly if you are following a low GI diet. You can add extra protein to any smoothie by including either a scoop of your favorite protein powder or 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds.
