Let’s Get The Running Man Going !

OK, so we are not that great at puns or one liners that even remotely make sense so we’ll stick to our “job” of doing stuff that involves fruit and vegetables.

The Running Man is one of my favourite Breakfast Yogi Blends for a number of reasons.

The first one is that it is SUPER QUICK to put together.

And the second one is that it’s packed full of goodness that leaves you feeling satisfied and ready for the day because, as someone who isn’t the greatest fan of breakfast, I find it difficult to “eat” in the morning.

So this combination of ingredients really hits the spot for me.

Give it a go and let us know what you think.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (peeled obviously)
  • 1 small handful dried oats
  • 1 small tub unsweetened yogurt of your choice (I like to use Greek Yogurt but you can use any really)
  • I handful blueberries, fresh or frozen (I prefer the frozen ones because they give the Yogi Blend a nice refreshing “chill”)
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (I use Almond or Soya Milk – both unsweetened)
  • I handful ice (this makes it like a milkshake and who doesn’t like a milkshake?)

Simply toss all the ingredients into your blended and blend until smooth.

ENJOY !

A Berry Nice Blast !

Smoothies are a great way to give you a boost. They’re quick and easy to make and don’t leave you with much to clean up afterwards as well.

Sometimes, during the day, we need a quick blast of energy and too often, we turn to the “wrong” things or, should we say, the things that just give us a temporary boost and then we’re left looking for something else AND feeling low on energy too.

This quick blend is packed full of nutrients and good stuff.

Why not give it a go ?

Ingredients

1 small cucumber, peeled and diced

1 large handful spinach

1 handful mixed frozen berries

1/2 avocado

Juice of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 large orange

1 cup coconut water

Putting It Together

Simply chuck everything into your blender and blend until nice and smooth and creamy.

ENJOY !!

It’s a Banana Blast

Yogi Blend 1

Yogi Blends are a pretty great way to start the day.

You combine the comforts of a milkshake with the goodness of a juice and the consistency of a thick smoothie to create a meal in a glass that will keep you going.

And you won’t want it to end either.

You know what’s even better ?

They’re so quick and easy to make – simply get all your ingredients ready (you can even prep them up the night before) and then chuck them all into your blender or nutribullet. Switch it on and blend until it’s nice and creamy and you’re good to go !!

We’ve created a selection of Yogi Blends for a new book for our Retreat (don’t worry, we will share more about this with you pretty soon) so we thought we’d share one with you today to try out.

ENJOY !
