If you follow us on Snapchat (if you don’t, find us at themmsisters or here) you’ll see we love our smoothies.
Our favourite smoothie would have to be this Super Merry Smoothie. It seriously wins. It has a Bulletproof, health hacking feel because of all the good stuff we chuck into our blender!
It has a lot of ingredients. And YES they are all super good for you. And we wanna tell you about all the good stuff so you too can hack your morning smoothie! Ready?
Super high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, stress reliever, mood enhancer, high in magnesium and so much more.
Source of protein, fibre, omega 3s. Great for skin, digestion and metabolism health.
If you’re going to add just one of these ingredients, pick this one! It’s so good for you! It supports skin health, nail health, hair health, gut health! Great for your joints and even arthritis. If you can’t be bothered to make bone broth all year (*raise hands) this is the perfect replacement. There are many varieties to choose from, at the moment we go for the Aussie made variety, Gelpro.
2 words: hormone health. You might know that we both completely stuffed up our hormones in a big way. We lost weight, over exercised and both our period cycles stopped for 2 years (read more here). Maca helps to regulate hormones, helps with menopause symptoms, gives you energy, improves fertility and even helps with bone density (very important if your period is MIA, as no period = bad for bones!).
It’s powdered green tea and is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. With caffeine for a bit of a pep but doesn’t give the massive low like coffee.
Healthy fats! From Dave Asprey and the Bulletprooth diet: MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) are missing from typical diets. They’re saturated fats but easier to digest than the more common LCTs (long-chain triglycerides). Your body sends them straight to the liver, they raise your metabolism and then get burned as fuel instead of being stored as fat. Sounds good, right!?
Usually found in curries it’s the perfect addition to your morning healthy smoothie too! It’s a natural anti-inflammatory, cancer fighter, filled with vitamins, antioxidants and good stuff! Also great for digestion and even weight loss!
Now remember, you don’t need to add all the extra good stuff… start with just 1 if you like!
