Miranda Kerr's Smoothie Secrets

Miranda Kerr's Smoothie Secrets

When glowy Kora Organics skincare founder and model Miranda Kerr shares her morning routine, we listen. Miranda starts her day with warm water with lemon to enhance cleansing and boost her immunity. And she loves a hydrating smoothie for breakfast. Recently, she shared her two favorite smoothie secret weapons: chaga and banana. 

 

 

Why add these two to your next smoothie?

Chaga is a highly medicinal mushroom that has been used for centuries to help boost immune health. In addition, it has been shown to fight inflammation in the body, help lower blood sugar levels, and may also lower harmful cholesterol levels. 

Bananas are a wholefood-way to add a little sweetness and creamy texture to your smoothie (we love freezing them first!) They're also rich in fiber (resistant starch which is great for gut health) and antioxidants.

She's also shared her favorite superfood-packed green smoothie recipe which is absolutely delicious and so hydrating. Give it a try!

When prepping for a movie role, Margot Robbie keeps it clean and simple. For breakfast she'll pair a bowl of oats with an immune-boosting berry and kale apple smoothie. 

In her honor, we've created a balanced Berry and Kale Apple smoothie. We've added satisfying protein so you can try it as a standalone, or opt to leave it out and pair it with a balanced bowl of oats. 

 

 

Margot Robbie-inspired Red-Carpet-Ready Smoothie

1/2 cup filtered water
1/2 cup apple juice
1 scoop vanilla organic protein
1/2 - 1 cup chopped kale
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Optional: 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup

Blend above ingredients in a high-speed blender and add ice or additional liquid as needed.

 

 

Margot's Wellness Philosophy

We love Margot's balanced approach to wellness. She opts for healthier options most of the time, but will indulge when dining out. Her go-to? A burger and fries. She also tends to avoid the gym, favoring outdoor activities like playing tennis with friends, or group classes like Pilates. She knows that finding activities you love is the simplest way to make a habit stick. She also prioritizes beauty sleep, an underrated wellness MVP in our playbook.

Beauty Chocolate

Beauty Chocolate

Stimulate collagen and satisfy your daily chocolate fix. Blood-sugar-stabilizing and endlessly fudgy—this chocolate does it all. If you don't enjoy the taste of coconut, opt for "refined" coconut oil instead. Customize with your favorite nut or seed butter, and feel free to add chocolate chips, goji berries, or nuts and seeds for a little crunch.

 

Fudgy Beauty Chocolate

gluten free + dairy free + low/no sugar options

Yield: 12-24 pieces, depending on size

 

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 cup natural almond, sunflower, cashew, or peanut butter

2 scoops of beauty protein

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup sweetener of choice (granulated monkfruit, stevia, or coconut sugar)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

HOW TO:

Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix until creamy.

Pour mixture into your preferred dish and let set in the freezer until firm, 15-20 minutes.

For mini hearts: use a silicone heart candy mold

For bars or squares: use a parchment-lined 8x8 dish

For "peanut butter cups": use either a full size or mini muffin tin, lined with papers. Peel after firm for ridged edges, like the original peanut butter cup.

Best kept in the fridge (for more fudge-like chocolate) or freezer (for more traditional chocolate texture.)

Three Ways to Make Balanced Oatmeal

Three Ways to Make Balanced Oatmeal

Oatmeal has long been the staple of a healthy diet. But new research has shown that eating even whole, healthy grains on their own can send your blood sugar into a spike. What goes up must come down, and when your blood sugar crashes it can leave you feeling hungry just an hour or two later. The answer? Add some healthy protein and/or fats. Here are three of our favorite ways to add nutrition and satiety to your morning bowl of oats.

 

#1: Add High Quality Plant Protein Powder

Stir in 1/2 to one scoop of your favorite USDA Certified Organic Vanilla or Chocolate protein powder to amp up the nutrition. You may need to add a little extra liquid to do so.

 

#2: Add Chia Pudding

By soaking chia seeds in your favorite nut-based milk overnight, you create chia pudding. Adding it to your oats can create satisfying texture and also help you fuller, longer with its healthy fats and fiber. 

Basic Chia Pudding:

Whisk 3/4 cup chia seeds into 3 cups of unsweetened vanilla nut milk with 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup, honey, or monkfruit to taste. Let sit for several hours or overnight in the fridge. 

 

#3: Add Nuts, Seeds or Nut Butter

Adding a handful of nuts or seeds or a scoop of nut or seed butter is an easy way to add creamy or crunchy texture and healthy fats. This will also help keep your blood sugar steady and keep you satiated until lunch.

Meghan Markle's Morning Smoothie

As with her style, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle keeps her morning smoothie simple and elegant. She does, however, also manage to squeeze in four of our favorite all-star ingredients.

 

 

She shared her recipe with The Chalkboard Mag in an interview in which she also shared her supplement routine: magnesium, B12, a multi-vitamin and a cortisol manager before bed. 

 

Meghan's Smoothie Superfoods:

Coconut Water is a favorite de-bloater of ours and is highly hydrating. 

Frozen Blueberries are a skin superfood. They're antioxidant Vitamin-C packed, which fights against premature aging and helps your body naturally build collagen. Blueberries are also rich in gut-friendly fiber. 

Chia Seeds are loaded with fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. 

Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and can help regulate blood sugar. 

 

How to Make Meghan's Smoothie: 

Blend the following ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.

1/2 cup Chilled Water

1/2 cup Coconut Water 

1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 tsp Cinnamon 

1 scoop organic vanilla protein powder

Optional: 1 teaspoon honey

 

 

Meghan's Balanced Diet:

In general, Meghan tries to eat vegan during the week so she has a little bit more flexibility on the weekends, according to an interview with Best Health. Her self-proclaimed "kryptonite?" French fries. And she also loves pasta. She'll enjoy the occasional glass of wine, and we love her philosophy of ignoring fad diets and truly learning what works best for your own body.
