    It's January health kick time guys!

    For me, one of the easiest ways to pack lots of nutrients into my body is with a smoothie in the morning.

    It takes all of about five minutes to whizz up, pop into a portable cup and have on the way to work...

    Minimal effort but maximum taste and health benefits #winning. 

    This recipe is one of my favs. It contains immune-boosting beetroot which is a fab source of iron, magnesium and potassium and also Chia seeds which are loaded with anti-oxidants. 

    I've also added a scoop of Protein powder to pack an even bigger nutritional punch but you can go wild and use any colourful, juicy fruits and veggies you like!
     What you'll need
    50g frozen raspberries
    50g frozen blueberries
    50g beetroot
    1 tbsp chia seeds
    1 scoop of whey Protein (I order mine from MyProtein)
    200ml almond milk
    175g Total 0% Yoghurt
    1/2 avocado
    1/2 lime (juice)

    What you'll need to do
    1. Pop all your ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth, adding more almond milk or water if needed
    2. Decorate with some frozen fruits and enjoy!

    How easy is that!?

    1. Love the photos, Lauren! I'm so tempted to get a nutribullet but fear I won't have time to make stuff in the morning! I suppose we all really have to make sacrifices for better health non? =)
