Healthy Smoothie Recipe With A Fat Loss Kick

healthy-smoothie-recipe

Do you ever have one of those mornings when you’re in such a gigantic rush that you can barely even THINK about throwing something together to eat? When you pat yourself on the back just for taking the time to make a quick coffee before you hit the ground running? I don’t have to tell you that skipping breakfast is a very, very bad idea when it comes to health, to energy, and certainly when it comes to weight management.

When I’m really pushed for time a quick smoothie is one of my favorite pick-me-ups. And you know I’m not talking about just any old juice-bar smoothie (usually chock full of sugar in the form of excess fruit and add-ins). I’m talking about a real power smoothie – a complete meal with all the nutrition you need for a truly healthy start to the day. Not to mention an exceptionally yummy taste.

Here’s my tried’n’tested recipe for a truly delicious and healthy breaky to go. The key to making it a super-quick option is to prepare the dry ingredients the night before and have the fridge/liquid ingredients ready to go first thing.

The Base

  • 100ml of raw, full-fat milk. If you can’t access raw dairy (ask your local organic store – especially at the market), go for organic and preferably non-homogenized full-fat milk. Always buy dairy products as close to their natural state as possible.
  • 100 ml filtered water.
  • 1 scoop of quality organic whey protein powder. If you’re lactose intolerant, have 2 scoops instead, and use water instead of milk for step one (this particular brand of protein powder contains only 0.6% lactose and is also soy and gluten free). If you choose not to use the protein powder, use 200ml of milk and no water for your base – but remember that protein is the key to a truly healthy meal and is particularly important first thing in the morning. Please don’t add raw eggs as they can create food intolerance. Boil an egg the night before to have on the side if you like!
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (this will give you long-lasting energy and is a FANTASTIC metabolism kick-start)
  • 1 teaspoon Stevia (or more depending on your preference). Stevia is a naturally sweet herb up to 300 times sweeter than sugar, and with no adverse effects on your blood sugar levels. It truly is a guilt-free sweet treat! Find Stevia in your health food or organic store.
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw or organic full-fat plain yogurt
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Make it interesting

  • Being the choc-loving gal that I am, I love to add 1-2 flat tablespoons of raw or dark cacao powder. Good quality chocolate is a fantastic source of minerals and antioxidants, and has wonderful weight loss benefits.
  • EITHER: A handful of fresh seasonal berries  – again, a wonderful source of antioxidants and pretty much the only truly healthy fruit option in my opinion. Frozen berries (preferably organic) are an okay back-up.
  • OR: 1-2 tablespoons of nut butter. A variety of tasty nut butters are available in most health food and organic stores.
  • 1-2 tablespoons organic flaxseeds (whole, preferably unhulled) for an Omega-3 and fiber boost.
  • A couple teaspoons organic ground coffee for an added pick-me-up and antioxidant boost (it’s your call whether you’d combine this with a nut butter smoothie, or stick to a choc-coffee mix!)

Of course you’re going to need to invest in a good blender – this baby won’t come out too smooth if you try to put it together in a hand-held shaker! I make this shake once or twice a week when I really need to move fast. I wouldn’t recommend a liquid breaky everyday as there is some evidence that this can elevate cortisol (stress hormone) levels over time. But it’s certainly a great back-up for a busy morning or post-workout meal, and is a far better option than that coffee and low-fat muffin!

Do you have any smoothie recipes of your own that you can share? Or any ideas for variations?

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    Thank you for these great smoothie recommendations. I used to make them all the time but have gotten away from it due to the fact that I no longer use sweeteners (though stevia is a good idea!)

    I have spriluna, raw nut butters, coconut oil, raw cocoa, etc here at home so I may try to make something in the morning. 🙂

    THANK YOU for posting this smoothie recipe!

    I have been using coconut milk as the base of my smoothie…….is that good for weight loss? I use raw cocoa powder, whey protein powder, fresh ground flax seeds, stevia, coconut milk and crushed ice. It makes a great replacement for a shake made out of ice cream. I want to try some of your other additional suggestions too.

  4. Interesting, thanks for that. My son has a terrible aversion to eating raw fruit for some reason, so I made it into smoothies for him and then he can’t get enough of it! I also found some great smoothie recipe here and thought I’d share – lots of other great ideas there.
