Super smoothies for 2019

This year we're trying out some new super smoothie recipes. Find out what we think...

At the start of 2019 we hooked up with nutritionist Kellie Weiss to find out about her top three super food smoothies.

After a busy December, eating too much and dare I say it, drinking a little bit too much...January is the month to replenish and rejuvenate.


So, this month Ricky and I are trying Kellie's Hormone Balancer shake. Here goes...

The Super ingredient is Maca, one of nature's powerful superfoods, that helps to regulate hormones or bring hormone levels back into normal range.

Kellie says Maca is a good source of carbohydrate and protein and has plenty of minerals too.

Interestingly, it's also known to aid female fertility and has been known to help treat male impotence. So, lets shake it up!


The Hormone Balance Shake

  • Prep-time: 2 minutes
  • Serves: 1
  • Ingredients: Naturya maca, cacao nibs, cacao powder, organic oats, banana, dried date, almond milk


How to make

100g (2tbsp) Oats 1 tsp (heaped)
Maca 2 tsps Cacao nibs 1 tsp Cacao powder
1 or 1/2 Banana
1 Dried Date 150-200ml of Nut Milk (my favourite is Plenish almond or cashew
50ml filtered water


  • Add the oats, Maca, cacao nibs & powder, banana, dried date to blender then cover the dry ingredients with the nut milk & water. Whizz until smooth and serve. Keep any leftover in the fridge for a snack later.
  • Pour into a tall glass or an on-the-go flask.
