Smoothies

 

Follow these simple steps to make perfect Smoothies.

  • Add the liquid to the blender first

  • Add the high quality protein powder.

  • Add the fruit, flavour extracts and ice cubes.

  • Blend according to your blenderís manufacturer instructions.

  • Pour into an attractive tall glass.

  • Sit down and relax.

Drink or eat your shake with a spoon over ten to fifteen minutes. By eating slowly you allow your system to digest your shake, and you practice eating more slowly for other meals throughout the day.

 

Rinse out your glass and the blender with lots of warm water right away, and you wonít have problems keeping your blender clean.

 

Delicious Smoothie Recipes

 

Banana Smoothies are a favourite for many people.  However, you don't need to be restricted to the obvious in smoothy making. The following are a selection of ideas to get you started in making your own fantastic smoothies. If you want to make a smoothie to replace an entire meal, look for a high quality protein powder that is labelled as a meal replacement.  Not all are meal replacements so be careful. 

 

If you want to lose weight, make sure your product is specifically designed for weight loss and NOT weight gain for bulking up as a body builder.
