From sharing her 90s workouts (our editors have tried both her six-minute abs routine here and her seven-minute arm challenge here), supermodel Cindy Crawford has now shared her morning smoothie recipe. And it has a very sweet Australian twist.
The 54-year-old revealed exactly what she puts in her smoothies – and aside from the usual suspects (hello, all of the spinach), it packs a punch with two teaspoons of Elle Macpherson’s WelleCo Superelixir Greens.
(This is a little different to Macpherson’s approach. According to welleco.com, the 56-year-old Australian model mixes two heaped teaspoons of The Super Elixir with lemon juice and filtered water upon waking. At 3pm, she’ll blend one heaped teaspoon of WelleCo Nourishing Protein Chocolate, 400ml of almond milk and half a frozen banana.)
Cindy Crawford Smoothie:
- 1 cup of almond milk⠀
- 1/3 frozen banana⠀
- 1 cup of fresh spinach⠀
- 10 fresh mint leaves⠀
- 1 scoop of protein powder
- 2 tsp of WelleCo Superelixir Greens⠀
- Small handful cacao nibs
Blitz it all in a blender and what you have is a very green tasting smoothie with a chocolate-y undertone. Ever since Crawford shared her vintage, denim shorts workout to her 4.8 million followers, I’ve been tacking together her exercise regimes as part of my morning routine.
I start with Crawford’s ab exercise compilation (10 regular crunches, 10 full sit-ups, 10 roll-ups and 10 jack-knives on your right side and 10 of the same on your left side. Three rounds equals to 150 crunches.) While I do workout with a trainer three times a week, I dial a friend and do the “Cindy workout” together every day. It really burns and I can see such a difference in just a matter of weeks.
I follow this up with the super’s arm workout, which is very challenging (particularly the front raises). And so now – in my grand bid to live my quarantine life as a supermodel – I’ll add in this smoothie. With my morning coffee (and occassionally this face mask courtesy of our beauty editor Emily and Adut Akech), I’m then ready to write to you all.
