Start your day like a supermodel with Cindy Crawford’s smoothie

Lockdown has been an opportunity to learn new skills, regimes and recipes… apparently. But if you’re anything like us, you’re still eating cereal out of the box while wearing the same pair of slacks you had on back in March.

Nevertheless, here’s an opportunity to switch up your breakfast routine with a little help from a legendary supermodel.

Cindy Crawford has been sharing various bits of ‘stay at home’ inspiration during lockdown, and the latest is her recipe for her morning smoothie.

Posting her guide on Instagram, she said it was her go-to way of ‘kickstarting (the) morning’. And if it’s good enough for Cindy, it’s good enough for us.

Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 2tsp WelleCo Superelixir Greens*
  • Handful of cacao nibs

* This is just a mix of various fruit and veg and probiotics and costs £96. You can get similar blends from most supplement companies, including Amazing Grass’s Green Superfood (£23.99), Lean Greens Super Green Powder (£45) and Fruit Superfood Blend from MyProtein (£17.99). Alternatively, just chuck a teaspoon of spirulina powder (£6.99, Holland and Barrett) into your smoothie for an added boost of B vitamins, manganese, iron and calcium.

Method

Blitz, drink, bask in your morning glow.

Sure, it’s a pretty simple smoothie but at least it offers you a small protein hit and some vitamins if you had a scoop of greens. If you’re interested in eating more whole foods, you could shove more veg in there – like kale, avocado and broccoli, which will increase the fibre, fat and antioxidant load.
