KAMALAYA COCO LOCO
He’s one of my favourite banana smoothie recipes that I love to make for a healthy breakfast. This recipe comes from my favourite health spa – Kamalaya in Koh Samui Thailand. It’s a nourishing grounding smoothie that’s high in potassium, calcium, and minerals to support healthy bones and nervous system.
WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT:
Adding a spoonful of Healthy Chef Protein helps repair my body and keeps me energised all morning. Protein increases metabolism as your body requires more energy (calories) to process protein than it does to digest carbs. A study published in the American journal of physiology stated that the eating 1 g of protein per kilo of body weight increased the “thermic effect” by 42%.
I also add a spoonful of chia or ground flaxseeds for omega 3 and a pinch of cinnamon that helps to stabilise my blood sugar. Make into a smoothie or smoothie bowl by topping with sun-ripened fruits, nuts and seeds.
