Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex might have a little more time to devote to making healthy breakfasts since exiting the royal family, but Meghan always has a tried-and-true smoothie recipe to fall back on that’s delicious and quick to pull together. She shared the recipe in a 2015 interview and fans can easily make the protein-packed smoothie at home.
Meghan’s healthy smoothie recipe
In 2015, The Chalkboard chatted with Meghan who was, at the time, writing posts on her now defunct lifestyle blog The Tig. The article provided a round up of “a few of the personal health tips that keep her on top of her game.”
One of those health tips was Meghan’s “go-to smoothie,” which she provided the recipe for — and it can be blended up when you’re short on time.
1 packet of your shake powder of choice (I use Clean Cleanse
½ cup of frozen blueberries
1 tsp of cinnamon
some chia seeds
½ cup almond milk
½ cup of coconut water
Add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Meghan noted, “I also do the same thing with frozen mango, a
squeeze of lime, swap the cinnamon for turmeric (which has unbelievable healing
properties!) and just use coconut water. Nom nom nom!”
The former actress also shared an alternate breakfast option she enjoys: “an acai bowl with fresh berries, manuka honey and bee pollen (that’s my absolute favorite).”
She revealed other healthy tips to follow
Meghan also discussed some other healthy tips during the
interview, sharing that her food philosophy is “It’s all about the balance” and
her favorite workout is “A six-mile run with my friend Heather.” She also
shared that she will sit in an infrared sauna once a week to sweat out toxins.
The duchess spoke about her restaurant tips and, while she considers a green juice the best fast food option, noting, “That’s fast. And it’s food. (It’s been many moons since I went through a drive thru),” she did offer up the best way to approach a sit down restaurant experience, too.
“Take your time,” Meghan shared. “Order your starters and have a glass of wine, and then see how hungry you are before you order your next course. It’s a great way to enjoy dining in general… pacing yourself and enjoying your food without rushing through it and you’ll inadvertently eat less.”
She added, “Alternatively, I would say one of the best tips
would be to put your phone away. It’s healthy to be present. Everything can
Meghan focuses on positivity
The interview focused on health tips and some of her suggestions involved a focus on positivity. When asked the “simplest way to improve health,” her suggestion was straightforward: “Surround yourself with people who live a healthy lifestyle… it rubs off.”
If she could give just one piece of advice, she again landed
on steering clear of negativity. “That thoughts become things, so it’s
important to stay as positive as possible,” Meghan said at the time, adding, “It’s
crazy how it trickles into everything in your life.”
