lose_baby_weightIt’s been proven that colours can affect your mood in both positive and negative ways. That’s probably why we talk about ‘feeling blue’ or ‘seeing red’.
But it’s not just the colour of your walls or the colour of your car – colours of food can affect your mood as well.
Today we take a look at some of the most popular Healthy Mummy Smoothie colours – see if you can find one to match your mood!


You like to get up and go in the morning! You need to feel the burst of fresh berries such as strawberries or raspberries in your mouth.
Berries are a great way to start the day. They are full of antioxidants and are low in energy density.
What does energy density mean for weight loss? Well basically it means you can eat more for less calories! For instance 100g of blueberries contains 47 calories, which is roughly the same as half a slice of wholegrain bread. So you get more berry bang for your buck!

Bit of a sweet tooth are we? Yellow fruits such as bananas and pineapples are a great base for a smoothie.
Bananas are low in fat and calories, but high in fibre, magnesium and potassium. Fibre helps you to feel fuller for longer, which means they are a great addition to a weight loss diet.
We recommend keeping your banana chopped up in the freezer – it gives the smoothie a much creamier texture (without the need for ice cream!). And at just 90 calories for the average banana, you can enjoy one on a regular basis.
Pineapples are a non fat food that offers a healthy hit of sweetness. As they are low in calories it means you can enjoy 100g of pineapple for just 43 calories. They contain a lot of water which can help to add to the feeling of fullness.

Come on, you don’t expect us to believe that your favourite colour is brown, do you? We all know that you must be a chocolate lover!
Chocolate doesn’t need to be off limits when you are trying to lose weight, but it’s important not to over do it. Enjoy chocolate flavoured Healthy Mummy Smoothie mix and be confident that you are consuming loads of vitamins and minerals at the same time.
When you are trying to lose weight it’s important not to make any foods ‘off limits’. Rather, you can find new ways to enjoy them without overdoing it.
When it comes to eating chocolate, the darker the better as the darker chocolate contains less sugar than milk chocolate and more of the elements that are said to reduce your blood pressure and improve the health of your heart.
Another great option for a brown tint to your smoothie is to add coffee. Of course, if you are breastfeeding this might not be an option. But for those of you that need your coffee fix, try adding it to your smoothie so that you can consume it along with a load of healthy extras.

You like to get the most nutrition possible in your smoothies, right? That’s great, because adding fresh vegetables and even herbs to your smoothies is a great way to pack more vitamins and minerals into your diet.
Spinach is an easy way to introduce more green into your smoothies. When blended, the flavours of baby spinach are very subtle and not at all what you may expect. Spinach is very low in calories while being high in antioxidants, vitamins (A, C, E and K) as well as important minerals such as iron and calcium.
Cucumber is another great veggie to throw in your smoothie, as they pack a nutritional punch without overdoing it on the flavour. Cucumbers have a high water content, which is helpful to add to your daily recommended amounts of water.

You like to feel a bit of order among the chaos of the morning, which is a great way to start the day!
Try adding coconut to your smoothie, in any form you like. We love adding a sprinkling of shredded coconut, or even using coconut milk just to mix things up.
Oats are another way to keep it neutral in the blender while adding a healthy dose of nutrition. They keep you fuller for longer which means it will be easier to resist the biscuit tin at morning tea.
