I’m currently embarking on a cleanse. Strange time of year, I know, but recently my focus on healthy eating has gone down and my intent on eating and drinking lots of things that are bad for me has undoubtedly gone up. Oops. So for the next few days at least I’m going to adopt a ‘eat how you would like to feel’ stance and try and feed my body more nourishing alternatives than croissants, burgers and lasagne.
Replacing my beloved French pastries for breakfast this week will be this delicious blueberry, vanilla and fromage frais smoothie. It’s healthy, tasty, and the protein elements help keep me full until lunch. Here’s what you’ll need to make one smoothie:
- 150g of fresh blueberries
- 3 tablespoons of fat free fromage frais
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 100ml of water
- 150ml of skimmed milk
Pop all of your ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. If the smoothie is a little thick for your liking, add more water or milk until you reach your desired consistency.
Would you attempt a cleanse at this time of the year? If so, how do you go about it?
