Stronger Matcha Smoothie
The weights are getting heavier and we are seeing our strength improve week on week.
This month we have created a mean green stronger smoothie, packed full of protein to help build muscle and a hit of caffeine to give us an extra boost during workout, this juice packs a powerful amount of goodness.
Pears are full of fibre and contain powerful antioxidants which help fight inflammation and infection. Pears are 100% fat and cholesterol free and have been credited as helping prevent cardiovascular illnesses and aid weight loss.
Spinach is high in Vitamin C as well as being packed with antioxidants which are regarded as a key defence for your cells against disease.
Matcha tea contains caffeine which can help give you that extra boost when consumed just before a workout. It has also been said that this wonder tea can help boost your metabolism.
Vanilla protein powder, using a high quality, vegan protein powder will not only give you a boost of vital protein but also speed up metabolism and provide a healthy dose of fibre.
Almond milk is full of vitamin D and the unsweetened varieties contains half the calories of cows milk. It also tastes pretty great.
