Juices and smoothies are a great way to start the day. If you're guilty of grabbing breakfast on the go, why not skip the morning latte and pastry and blend up a beauty smoothie packed with nutrients that will help your skin, energy levels and general wellbeing.
There are lots of incredible seasonal ingredients to choose from, each with their own health benefits, and whilst we're not nutritionists (you should always consult your doctor for diet advice) we've put together three of our facourite, tasty smoothies with a little extra something.
1. Avocado Thickie
Not quite a smoothie, this is a 'thickie' because of its rich creamy texture. This is a great start to the day and should be filling enough to keep you going until lunchtime.
handful of spinach leaves
Almond / soy / coconut milk
1 teaspoon Super Green Molecule
Blend all the ingredients and enjoy! The avocado is rich in good fats, the spinach provides Vitamin K which is excellent for bone health and healing wounds and the almond milk is just delicious. Add a teaspoon of the Super Green Molecule by Fountain which is high in alfalfa chlorophyll which delivers a continuous energy transfusion into your bloodstream to increase blood cell count and oxygen levels, it helps to aid detoxification and cellular repair, whilst strengthening the immune system.
2. Berry Delicious
This pink delicious smoothie is super quick and super tasty, not to mention packed with super fruits.
Handful of frozen berries
1 teaspoon of The Beauty Molecule
Frozen berries are the lazy girl's best friend when it comes to breakfast. They stay fresh and delicious in the freezer and give a wonderful zingy flavour to the smoothie. Put all the ingredients into your preferred bender and whizz everything up. The addition of The Beauty Molecule adds a delicious pomegranate flavour and each 5ml serving of the supplement provides 40mg resveratrol, a natural phenol that's found in the skin of red grapes and in Japanese knotweed which has been proven to offer the longevity effects of calorie restriction, promote normal cell division and offer excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
3. Ginger Zinger
This bright breakfast booster is like a little burst of sunshine on a cold, dreary morning.
Handful of chopped carrots
1/2 teaspoon ginger
One handful of Kale
1 teaspoon Lion Heart Liquid
Throw everything into your blender and serve over ice. The ginger gives this a lovely tang and masks helps with the taste of the raw kale, which can be a little bitter for some. Don't forget to drop in your Lion Heart Liquid for some serious Omega 3. Just one single spoon contains more EPA & DHA than 28 standard capsules and is the only brand that delivers the recommended dose of 3,000mg EPA + DHA to reduce blood pressure in a single serving. It's in the natural triglyceride form, shown to be 70% more absorbable and the freshness is also guaranteed which means the oil tastes great and never repeats on you. It's also flavoured with lemon for an added zing!
