On the occasion, you might feel like a little extra boost in your Lady Shake. Whilst adding in some fruit/veggies can be a great way to increase the nutrients and protein, some are high in sugar and can slow your weight loss progress.
We’ve compiled a list of some healthy add-ins for when you feel like shaking things up without a huge spike in calories!
Avocado is already pretty creamy and one of the best foods to eat for weight loss thanks to its high fibre content. By adding a serving of avocado to your smoothie, you’re filling up on good monounsaturated fat that will leave you feeling full. Plus, it makes your smoothie creamier without loading it with sugary ingredients loaded with empty calories.
Spinach and Kale are a popular choice for a green smoothie but cauliflower is another veggie you can throw in for a creamy texture! It has a high fibre content and adds a huge nutrient boost!
Unsweetened almond milk
Some ladies enjoy adding milk to their shake but some (such as skim milk) can be high in sugar. Unsweetened almond milk is not only low in sugar but has only 30 calories which is extremely low in comparison to other types of milk.
Add Greek yogurt for a protein boost.
Increase the protein in your shake the easy and natural way by adding in some greek yoghurt! This is also a great way to reduce the sweetness according to your personal taste.
Throw in some seeds.
Adding seeds into your smoothie can naturally pump up the fibre and the protein of your drink. Some great options include flax seeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds.
Turn your shake into a smoothie bowl! This can be a great way to add more nutrients and filling ingredients to your shake. Pour it into a bowl and sprinkle with some toppings such as seeds, nuts, berries or a low sugar granola (make sure to read the nutritional info as some can be very high in sugar!).
