Tips + Suggestions

FROZEN BERRIES can be much cheaper and more sustainable with alot less packaging than fresh berries. Frozen berries retain all their nutrients as they are picked at optimum freshness and quickly frozen.

 

ADD PROTEIN POWDER – Use what you like. I use a neutral flavoured plant protein with NO added sweeteners or fake sugars and flavours.  

 

BLENDER – a high-speed blender creates super-smooth textures & it’s like having a sous chef in your kitchen!
