However, sometimes you don’t feel like eating a proper meal before you get straight in the water or on the mountain.
We’ve put together a series of simple smoothie recipe that will get you fuelled up for your next session. Planning on riding particularly hard that day? Have one alongside your normal breakfast.
If you’re a protein powder kinda person, you can always add this to your morning smoothie.
We used a NutriBullet to make our smoothies, because they are super easy to use and clean – plus they really pulverise the fruit, so you’re not left with any lumpy bits.
First up: the classic fruit smoothie. We’ve picked strawberry, blueberry and banana for their antioxidant levels – plus they are really filling!
Strawberry, Blueberry & Banana Smoothie
Makes approximately two smoothies
- 1 banana
- 100g blueberries
- 100g strawberries
- 100ml low fat Greek yoghurt
- 100ml coconut milk (or almond/soya milk, if you prefer)
Chop your banana. Wash and hull the strawberries and the blueberries. Pop all three in your blender. Add the Greek yoghurt followed by the coconut milk. You can use almond or soya milk instead, if you prefer.
Whizz together and pour into a glass of your choice. It’s best to drink this smoothie the day you make it.
