Metabolism Boosting Berry Smoothie

IMG_1105.jpg

Another Monday morning, another week ahead of us! Now I know I am not the only one who says things like "as of Monday morning I will be starting (insert resolution here)". For those of you who are starting weight loss resolutions, get fit resolutions, feel better in your clothes resolutions or most important get healthy resolutions here is a recipe for you.

Though I love porridge, it's definitely come to that time of the year where I am swapping my hot bowl of goodness for a cold pressed juice or blended creation. Smoothies are so quick to whip up on spring/summer mornings and there are so many delicious combinations. SO to kick start the smoothie season, I thought I would share one of my favourite combinations. This one is packed with a whole heap of metabolism boosters so you can feel on your way to your most comfortable summer body - whatever size or shape that may be! I know I am no size 6, and my bikini body will never rival that of Miranda Kerr's, but hey, I am healthy, I am happy and I embrace the curves I was given!


Ingredients
1 tbsp matcha powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup blueberries
handful raspberries
small handful blackberries
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
almond milk
1 banana
1/4 avocado
1 tsp almond butter
1 tsp psyllium husks

 you can also add:
handful spinach/kale
tbsp coconut yoghurt

Throw all your ingredients in a blender and whizz up until thick and smooth! Top with bee pollen, hemp seeds or your favourite raw granola. Too easy and very delicious!
