What is in The Healthy Mummy Smoothies

As our Healthy Mummy Smoothies are very different to other ‘shake’ based products, we thought we would outline why they are very different and what makes them unique.

The Healthy Mummy has a range of different types of Smoothies which are all nutritionally dense formulated meal replacements and can be used as an effective tool to help you lose weight. The entire range contains a mix of high fibre and natural ingredients so you feel fuller for longer. Some of the range also includes probiotics. They all contain essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and important antioxidants.

What’s in our Smoothies

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.

Breastfeeding friendly

Safe for breastfeeding mums! We have included fenugreek into some of our weight loss smoothies, which is said to boost a mother’s milk supply. Made with whole foods, the smoothies have been specially formulated to give you the boost of vitamins and minerals needed to support you if you’re breastfeeding.

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

What’s not in our Smoothies

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.

They are all a formulated meal replacement & pass international standards

Our Healthy Mummy Smoothie range is a formulated meal replacement and has passed International Food Standards. They provide your body with vitamins and minerals and the focus is on optimal nutrition. Some other ‘shakes’ on the market are only a protein shake or supplement.

Check out some of our favourite healthy smoothie recipes

Now that you have all information what we put in our Healthy Mummy Smoothies we wanted to share some of our favourite smoothie recipes. Now you can make some delicious, healthy smoothies to help you lose weight and get healthy.

And we have many more in the recipe hub of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge ready for you to try.

What ingredients are good to add to a weight loss smoothie?

If you aren’t keen on using one of our smoothie recipes there are some great smoothie ingredients you can experiment with to make your smoothie delicious.

Whether you are using the smoothie as a mid-morning or afternoon snack or as a quick grab and go breakfast smoothie you need to make sure you aren’t adding ingredients that will hamper your weight loss goals.

Milk

One ingredient that is often consistent when mums try our smoothies is their preferred milk. Whether you just have The Healthy Mummy Smoothie mix with the milk on it’s own or add in a cup ice cubes or other ingredients milk is usually one of the base ingredients in our smoothie recipes.

So whether you prefer full-cream, skim, low-fat or if you can’t have lactose or prefer nut or plant based milks such as soy milk, unsweetened almond milk / almond milk or coconut milk pop a cup or two into your smoothie to get started.

Additional powders

Adding in extra powders such as protein powder will give your smoothie an extra boost especially if you tend to have one after a workout it will help you build muscle. The Healthy Mummy Protein Powder is based off whey protein and you can mix it with The Healthy Mummy Smoothie mix to create a tasty protein smoothie for your pre- or post- workout snack.

Other additions you could pop into your smoothie include some cocoa powder, super greens powder, collagen or other nutrient boosting powders.

Yogurt

If adding your preferred milk to your smoothie isn’t giving you the creaminess you are after why not added in some yoghurt. Not only will adding yoghurt increase the creaminess of your smoothie recipe but with its superfood status yoghurt will also give you multiple health benefits also.

Now remember you want to stick to it being a healthy smoothie so make sure your yoghurt has no added sugar, often it’s best to opt for plain greek yoghurt to get all the benefits without the added sugar.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

The biggest group of smoothie ingredients that will add not only health and nutritional benefits but also taste. There are so many fruits and vegetables that you can just as boosters to your smoothie.

Get all the goodness of leafy greens by adding some baby spinach or kale, get that added boost of vitamin c with some mango or pineapple. Want a berrilicious smoothie? Add in some raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and more!

Even if you don’t have fresh fruit or vegetables to add, throw in a frozen banana or avocado and not only will your smoothie have extra creaminess but will be the perfect summer snack. Reduce your wastage when that fresh fruit and veggies are about to go off by turning it into a puree for your smoothie or just freeze it for a smoothie another day.

Other popular smoothie ingredients

The list of smoothie ingredients could go on for a while as you could really add almost anything into a smoothie recipe. Some other things our mums like to add are:

  • Coconut oil
  • Ground flaxseed
  • Cayenne
  • Vanilla extract – which will give you that sweet taste without the added sugar
  • Cashew
  • Coconut water for a hydration boost
  • Peanut butter – another great option to boost creaminess if you can’t have peanut butter try almond butter
  • Chia seeds

Plus so much more!
