Bounce into spring with this All Berry Bonanza smoothie! Filled with All-Bran fibre (Australian women are recommended to eat 25 grams of dietary fibre and men 30g grams per day), frozen berries and protein powder – this refreshing smoothie is best drank from 0-30 mins after your workout!
The reason we add protein powder to this recipe is to help rejuvenate your muscles and put those much needed amino acids back into your system to prevent your body from using its own muscle tissue for energy.
Blueberries alone are full of antioxidants that help to protect our bodies from illness & free radicals (which are oxygen molecules that damage our bodies’ cells). Not only do they taste delicious they are a great source of Vitamin K.
Regardless of all the health benefits, let’s be honest – we drink this smoothie because it simply tastes great! And if you prep all your fruit by washing, cutting and freezing the berries into smaller bags – it will mean you can whizz up this Berry Bang in no time.
