Mikki Williden, Nutritionist says that “smoothies are a great vehicle for nutrient-rich foods. A decent smoothie-maker will blend ingredients properly to ensure the end result is appetising. Greens, herbs and other vegetables can be blended (hidden) and nuts, avocado, coconut milk and coconut flakes are a good way to add fat. If these form the base, then add unsweetened cocoa powder to make it chocolatey and a small frozen banana or berries for fruit.
Try making your own icecream. Blend frozen banana and coconut cream as a base for coconut, dark chocolate chips, chia seeds and peanut butter”.
This is a great, easy recipe for Warriors to make at home. If you are a Support Crew member, why not purchase the ingredients and drop off at home for your Warrior? Then all they have to do is blitz up and drink!
