1. They are great for a busy mum’s brekkie

Our research shows that nearly 50% of mums skip breakfast due to being too tired to make it or not having enough time to make it. Needless to say this wreaks havoc with the metabolism, health and weight loss of mums all over the country and if mums found just 2 minutes to make a smoothie for breakfast they would feel healthier, have more energy and find weight loss a lot easier.

You can use them with healthy eating plans. If you are using any weight loss plan or healthy eating plan (or following our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges).  Healthy Mummy Smoothie

2. It is accelerant and filler FREE

We are proud to say that our Smoothies are free from any fillers and weight loss accelerators. Many weight loss shakes contain fillers and weight loss accelerants to trick your body into short term – and unhealthy weight loss. These artificial fillers make your tummy feel temporarily full are not natural and the long term effects are not known. They can also lead to a lot of the side effects associated with ‘shakes’.

3. It contains wholefoods

The Healthy Mummy Smoothies contains wholefoods and over 25 vitamins and minerals. The products are high quality and every ingredient in the smoothie has been included to be a benefit to your health. Most shakes do not provide this high quality and the reason you will see many ‘giveaway’ offers on TV with these brands is because their product is extremely cheap to make and do not use the wholefoods and high quality vitamins and minerals that we do – so it is very cheap to make and their product is topped up with sugar and fillers to bulk it out.

4. The Original Smoothies are dairy free

Today many people have allergies to dairy so our original smoothie range is free of both of these ingredients. We use non genetically modified Soy Protein Isolate which uses only the protein part of the soy – not the oestrogen part of the soy.

5. It is breastfeeding friendly Heathy mummy smoothies - breastfeeding friendly

We do not use any caffeines* (other than Premium Espresso)  or weight loss accelerants in our smoothies so that breastfeeding mums can use it. We also included fenugreek in the smoothie in the original smoothies to be an additional benefit – and if you are not breastfeeding, fenugreek can still be a great benefit to your health as it provides carbohydrates, dietary fibre, fats and minerals like iron, calcium and phosphorous.

We have thousands of emails each month from mums on our plans who report improved milk supply from using our smoothies, but if your baby has any food sensitivities or suffers from colic we recommend talking to your Dr before changing your diet or using our products and plans. And you can read more on this from the ABA here.

6. It is a formulated meal replacement & passes international standards

TasheenaOur smoothie is a formulated meal replacement and has passed International Food Standards. It provides your body with over 25 vitamins and minerals and the focus is on optimal nutrition.

Some other ‘shakes’ on the market are only a protein shake or supplement.
This means they cannot be used as a meal substitute as they do not contain enough nutrients and energy to fuel your body and consumers can often be mislead into thinking a product called a Shake is a meal replacement when it is not.

7. It has helped mums lose over 1 million kg (results may vary)

KatMums all over the world, love our smoothies. And they are great for getting lots of nutrition into your body if you are too time poor or tired to cook a meal.

And mums also like to use them in conjunction with our 28 Day Diet & Exercise Plan – which is also breastfeeding friendly.

You can see hundreds of results from mums on our plans here.

8. What ingredients are in the Smoothie?

The smoothies are free from artificial sweeteners, additives, fillers, caffeine and weight loss accelerants

erinIncluded in our smoothies are:

  • Ingredients Included in our Smoothie Range

    • Flaxseed meal – healthy fats (omega 3 fatty acids) & high fibre making it an ideal ingredient for post birth nourishment
    • Pumpkin seed meal – adds bulk to assist a sense of fullness & contains a high level of essential fatty acids, protein, zinc & iron.
    • Psyllium husks – a water-soluble fibre and excellent for digestion
    • Probiotics

Protein For Health & Weight Loss

  • Soy protein isolate (non GM) – a complete protein low in fat with high digestibility. The protein is a soy protein isolate – which means the protein has been isolated and the oestrogen and hormone part of soy is not included in the product – only the protein part of the soy
  • hayley7Methionine 10mFg – important amino acid for normal metabolism
  • Protease (from aspergillus) – group of enzymes that assist digestive process by breaking down proteins
  • Soy lecithin 400mg (non GM) – emulsifying that can aid the digestive system
  • Bromelain 5mg – enzymes from pineapple assisting protein digestion.

 

 

 

High in fibre

All our Smoothies contain a range of high fibre ingredients which aids weight loss by providing a calorie controlled, low carbohydrate, high fibre and high protein meal replacement – which is a satisfying meal and keeps you feeling full.

Low sugar

Sugar provides our bodies with energy but it’s the types of sugar we choose and how much we eat that can potentially lead to poor health and long-term issues.  All of our Healthy Mummy Smoothies are 96% sugar-free and some of them are 100% fructose free, meaning there are no added sugars.

Low GI

As part of a healthy eating and weight loss diet, foods which are Low GI help to release glucose more slowly which leads to a more stable blood glucose level.

9. What ingredients are NOT in the Smoothie?

No accelerants

Used to speed up weight loss, accelerants are modified ingredients added into weight loss smoothies. These give the impression that you have energy when in fact, the accelerant is giving you energy. These artificial fillers make our tummy feel temporarily full, are not natural and the long-term effects are not known. The Healthy Mummy weight loss smoothies are packed with natural energy vitamins and minerals which give the body all the energy it needs.

No artificial ingredients

Many weight loss smoothies or shakes contain fillers and weight-loss accelerants to trick your body into short-term and unhealthy weight loss. These artificial fillers make your tummy feel temporarily full, are not natural and the long-term effects are not known.

No caffeine

Other than the Espresso Premium Smoothie, our Smoothies do not contain caffeine. Many weight loss smoothie products use caffeine as an ingredient to sustain hunger pangs, give elevated energy to make up for the lack of nutrients in the product, and for a metabolism boost. This is not a natural way to lose weight.

10. We also have a pregnancy smoothie

And the great news is that if you are pregnant, we have The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie.
