I’ve prepared a twelve week training programme to prepare you for the Jules Taylor Wines Women’s Marlborough Triathlon. Each Thursday I will post it here for you to follow along with. This programme started on Monday 5 September. The first weeks of the programme can be found:
Three Absolutely Delicious Smoothie Recipes
The great thing about these smoothie recipes is that you control the quality of the ingredients going into the blender. The fresher the better they will be for your health.
Matcha Kale Smoothie
Mix a few leaves of kale, banana, coconut water and ice with a scoop of matcha (powdered green tea available from health shops).
Chai, Raspberry and Banana Smoothie
Mix a banana, frozen raspberries, milk, Greek yoghurt, 2 teaspoons chia seeds and 2 teaspoons liquid honey in a blender.
Ray’s Fav Smoothie
Mix banana, yoghurt, milk, frozen mixed berries, 4-6 almonds, 4-6 dates and a teaspoon of liquid honey in a blender.
