Unlock your days with flavour-packed smoothies!

In News

We are almost at the end of our quarantine summers, ready to enter the monsoon season – and also, dun dun dun… Back to our professional lives! While we wake up lazily to get ready for a day full of tasks and duties, there is rarely any time to prep a hearty breakfast. Yes, we all want the eggs, dosa’s and fried Bombay toasts plated for us – but waking up at 6 AM can be quite a task on a lovely cold rainy morning.

Need a tasty but yet quick breakfast on your table or to-go? Smoothies are super-easy and pack in a bunch of nutrients to kickstart your mornings – at work, or at the gym – or simply while you spend the day catching up on house chores. No overcomplication, a quick whizz on the blender, and voila! – a nutritious breakfast in your glass in minutes! Here are my top 5 go-to smoothie recipes for a nutty, crunchy and nutritious beginning to my days:

6-Color Wheel Smoothie

There are just 3 base ingredients to this recipe, and the fruit and vegetable can be added as per your choice for the smoothie colour of your choice – one colour every day is quite a boring way to live our days!

Main ingredients:

  • 1/4th cup Greek yoghurt/cashews
  • ½ cup ripe banana mashed
  • ½ cup water – room temperature

Add these ingredients along with ½ cup chopped fruit and ½ cup chopped vegetable of your choice to a blender (list per colour below) and blend until smooth.

  • Hot Pink Smoothie: Raspberries, Beetroots
  • Light Pink Smoothie: Strawberries, Cauliflowers
  • Green Smoothie: Avocado, Baby Spinach
  • Orange Smoothie: Orange, Carrot
  • Purple Smoothie: Blueberries, Red Cabbage
  • Yellow Smoothie: Mango (or Pineapple), Pumpkin

Note – These can be made a night prior and refrigerated for a next morning consumption too!

Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Skip the porridge bowl and blend some oats with fruits and dairy for a quick and nutritious start to the day. All you need is:

  • 1/4th cup uncooked oats
  • ½ ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt or homemade curd
  • ¾ cup mangoes, chopped
  • ¾ cup strawberries, chopped
  • ¾ cup milk or your choice of dairy (almond milk, soy milk, etc)

Method: Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Consume, or refrigerate if you like your smoothies cold.

Carrot Ginger Turmeric Smoothie

Orange you glad we found a perfect immune-booster smoothie for your cold & lazy mornings. Turmeric is the perfect ages-old antidote to any ailment, inside or outside or bodies, and ginger is the perfect way to charge yourself up for a big day ahead! All you need is:

  • 2 cups carrots
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
  • ½ tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, soy milk, normal milk (the choice is yours)

Method:

  1. Use the carrots and water to make carrot juice. Keep aside ½ cup of the juice.
  2. Blend the rest of the ingredients along with ½ cup carrot juice for a perfect orange kick-starter! 

The Hearty Smoothie

An apple a day keeps the doctor away – let’s always believe this. A lovely red smoothie is all you need for a pick-me-up morning or afternoon. All you need is to blitz the below ingredients for a power punch to your day!

  • 2 small raw beetroots – peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 small apple – peeled and quartered
  • 50 grams of blueberries
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 300 ml of water

Peach Smoothie

Make the most of this perfect monsoon fruit, one of my personal favourites – nothing beats the fresh tang and flavour of a juicy peach! A great source of Vitamins C and A, peaches also offer a good amount of fibre that helps with your digestion. All you need to do is give the below ingredients a quick whirl in the blender and you’re good to go!

  • 1 banana, cut in chunks
  • 2 ripe peach, pitted & sliced
  • 30 grams low-fat yoghurt, or homemade curd
  • ¼ cup orange juice (fresh is always better!)
  • 1 cup small ice cubes

At the end of the day, it only matters how you like your smoothies – adds some honey if you like them sweeter, some more greens for a larger portion of fibre and some nuts to give it a crunchy protein! My favourite thing to do is mix in some of my ready Gouri’s Goodies cereal mix or a chopped up Dark Chocolate Energy Bar into the already made smoothie – an indulgence in itself! So, get started with your own version of your favourite smoothie – the perfect go-to when you need a quick breakfast or mid-meal snack! But always remember, too much of anything is rarely a good thing – a good balance of ingredients including protein, carbs and healthy fats is the perfect path to good nutrition!
