Just a quick reminder to have your order in by 9pm tonight and email any orders and box changes to - firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also remember to leave your old boxes out for the delivery driver to collect.
How to Drink Your Smoothie
If you are introducing smoothies to lose weight, try to drink it as an entire meal, rather than sipping it with breakfast. When made right, your smoothie will be packed with enough nutrition for an entire meal.
If you are trying to lose weight or manage blood sugar, be careful not to overload on fruit, which can be high in sugar and carbohydrates. Generally, a cup/handful of fruit is enough for a smoothie, and berries are a highly nutritious low-sugar fruit option.
Don’t overload on sweeteners. A good smoothie recipe shouldn’t call for added sugar, drawing flavour from the delicious ingredients contained.
Use up frozen fruit and veg. Nothing tastes better than an ice-cold smoothie. Using produce such as frozen spinach, berries or banana is a great way to instantly cool right down.
What Should I Add?
Turmeric. Yes, we often talk up turmeric here at OrganicBox, but only because it is so good! It contains the antioxidant curcumin which research has shown is anti-inflammatory.
Spirulina is an algae packed with protein, antioxidants, vitamins and more!
Maca powder is added for increased fertility and hormone balance.
Ground Flaxseedfor Omega 3.
Acai Berry Powderfor antioxidants.
Chia Seedas a clean protein alternative to protein powders.
Nut buttersfor protein and to thicken your smoothie.
Cinnamonto add an anti-inflammatory boost.
