I’ve slipped into some bad eating habits lately so this week I’ve been making a concerted effort to eat more fruit & veg and what better way than with a smoothie a day? The kind folks at Bioglan recently sent me some of their Superfood powders* to try so this was the perfect opportunity to give them a go. Here’s three supercharged smoothie recipes for you to try…

Banana & Chocolate Smoothie

Blitz together, top with a few chocolate shavings and enjoy! I like this one as it feels a bit naughty but is jam packed with nutrients thanks to the Supergreens powder. There is an ever so slightly bitter aftertaste thanks to the greens but overall this powder is a winner for me. I’m looking forward to adding it to allsorts of goodies like milkshakes, cookies & cakes…healthy chocolate, what’s not to love?!

Açaí Superberry Smoothie


Blend and serve topped with a few raspberries. This one tastes really fruity thanks to the combination of açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-ee), goji, pomegranate & blueberries. Perfect for sipping in the sunshine.

 
 
Green Boost Smoothie

 

 
Blend all the ingredients together and serve topped with blueberries. Okay, so this isn’t the most attractive smoothie in the world but it tastes better than it looks, honest! And it is so good for you. In fact, one serving of the Green Boost powder provides 11 times more protein than broccoli, 17 times more iron than spinach and 3 times more calcium than milk. Thems good numbers! 
 
 
 
Overall, I am a bit of a convert to these nutrient powders. It’s a fabulous way of getting in the goodness when you’re a busy mum. I’m not sure how often I’ll use the Green Boost powder as it is a bit of an acquired taste but I’m looking forward to experimenting with the other two. I’ve also got my eye on the Energy Boost powder; a big dose of that would definitely not go amiss!
 
Top tip: Use frozen fruit! Bags of frozen raspberries & blueberries are available all year round and are much cheaper. I also chop ripe bananas and freeze in individual containers so they are ready to go. If you find your food processor is struggling to blend the frozen fruit you can add a little coconut water or milk to help things along.
