Up Your Smoothie Game with Cocobella
Cocobella, Australia’s favourite coconut water and coconut yoghurt, is proud to be a partner of this year’s Great Ocean Road Running Festival to nourish you with our delicious dairy free, plant-based yoghurts and hydrating coconut water both over the weekend and to incorporate as part of your training.
Smoothies are a nutritious and efficient way to ensure that you have a balanced breakfast to perform your best as well as being easily digestible and quick to make. They are perfect to have both pre and post training to help you achieve your training goals.
It is important to make a balanced smoothie that contains a range of macronutrients, so here are some of our top tips to take your smoothie game to the next level!
Carbohydrates: Add natural carbohydrates for sustained energy, we love using oats or frozen bananas, which also thicken your smoothie.
Healthy fats: Cocobella coconut yoghurt is rich in MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) that provide instant energy as well as making you feel fuller for longer. Our coconut yoghurt is also packed with probiotics so is good for your gut and makes your smoothie extra creamy. A small amount of raw nuts like cashews and macadamias also provide a good source of natural fat and proteins.
Protein: For a plant-based protein boost, why not try Cocobella +Protein Coconut Yoghurt that contains 8g of protein per serve and is a source of calcium. This range is now available at Woolworths in strawberry, passionfruit and vanilla flavours.
Antioxidants: For colour and flavour add frozen strawberries, blueberries are raspberries that are perfect to add natural sweetness, without the sugar.
Electrolytes: Cocobella coconut water is nature’s natural hydrator and contains 5 key electrolytes to help you perform at your best and adds natural sweetness to your smoothie.
Make sure to look out for the Cocobella Combi at the village hub in Apollo Bay where our Coco Crew will be dishing out delicious samples of our coconut yoghurt and coconut water for you to enjoy throughout the weekend. We cannot wait to see you there!
