How to build the perfect smoothie



Smoothies can be a great breakfast or snack option but I often here people saying that they are hungry or dont feel satisfied. Well I’m here to show you that you can build a smoothie that won’t leave you feeling hungry.


Remember at each meal

2 cups of veggies

1 serve of protein

2 serves of good quality fat


How to build the perfect smoothie

1-2 teaspoons fibre (ground flax/LSA/Chia Seeds)

2 tablespoons protein (I prefer hemp, collagen, or pea protein)

2 cups of veggies

½ cup fruit

1 ½ cup water or coconut water


These are my favourite smoothie recipes that I have on a regular basis.
