Power smoothies

Power smoothies

This month Mel share’s three recipes for protein-packed smoothies. These recipes are great to try when you re-fuel post-workout, or as an alternative to your normal breakfast. And it doesn’t have to be sunny outside to enjoy a smoothie – you can even warm them up on the stove. We recommend trying Mel’s Chocolate protein smoothie heated, using BodyMe Chocolate Protein Powder available in store. Because Mel is passionate about food, she has been sharing her knowledge with Better Food in a blog series. You can check out some of her other recipes for miso soup, apple cider and others on our recipe page. She uses ingredients that you can buy at Better Food, many of which are Organic and Fairtrade.
