Delectably sweet, sharp and creamy in equal measure, with a kick of spice from the cinnamon, this low-fat smoothie delivers on the flavour front as well as working as a snack in Coach’s weight loss meal plan for women and weight loss diet plan for men. The kiwi and banana means this smoothie counts as one of your five-a-day, and the protein content in yogurt will help keep you feeling full.
It’s as simple as blending the ingredients below. If you’re in need of something to blend it in, our recommendations of the best smoothie makers will help. Our top option is the Nutribullet Balance, which has built-in scales and connects to an app so you can check the nutritional information of every smoothie you make – helpful since many smoothies contain eye-watering amounts of sugar. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, although it helps to be in the know so you can adjust what you eat the rest of the day.
