Triple Green Smoothie

Now this is a taste sensation and so good for you! Smoothies or shakes, whatever you want to call them, are ideal for a light meal, snack, or when you need some real food on the run. However, it’s easy to fall into the convenience trap of buying pre-packaged protein shakes, powders and commercially made smoothies which are nothing more than over-processed fake foods.

Shakes made at home can also include protein, fat and carbohydrate for a complete and filling meal, and all you need is a blender or stick blender and some basic ingredients. If you like the convenience of drinking it on the go, just pour your homemade shake into a BPA free hard-plastic or stainless steel drink bottle and take it with you!
