New to Purition? Top 5 tips for newbies

If you’re new to Purition or are coming back to it after a break, here’s some simple advice from our team to help get you motivated and prepared toward a healthier lifestyle.

1. Grab your blender and milk

Purition is best blended with milk and consumed straight away. We love a bullet type blender as they’re so easy to use and keep clean!

To prepare: Put 200-250ml (1 cup) of any cold milk in your blender, add 40g (that’s 1 packet or 4 heaped teaspoons) Purition and blitz for 15-20 seconds.

Like a thick shake? Leave the mix to sit for 2 or 3 minutes in the blender, then blitz for 2 more seconds before pouring into a glass or breakfast bowl.

Prefer a silkier shake? Blend for a minute with around 250-300ml (1 & ½ cups) cold milk.

2. Have a shake every day

Consistency is key! Try Purition for 5-6 consecutive days to get a true introduction to our blends and how they may work for you.

This will allow your taste buds time to adjust to the very natural flavor and low sugar content of Purition.

3. Add a little extra sweetness, if needed

Consider adding a third of a frozen banana or some low sugar fruit such as blueberries, strawberries or raspberries. In the summer, buy them fresh and in season.

In the winter, stock up on the bags of mixed frozen berries in the supermarket – they’re pretty delicious and economical too!

Adding a teaspoon of cinnamon, vanilla extract or a small spoon of honey work really well, too.

4. No blender? Try these serving suggestions

No blender or on-the-go? You can still enjoy your daily Purition.

Grab a small pot of Greek, natural or coconut yogurt and stir in 40g Purition. It’s a very quick, tasty and low-carb lunch or healthy mid-afternoon snack.

Alternatively, you can use a shaker. It’s not for everyone, as it remains quite nutty in texture. But on the days when you don’t have your blender to hand and you’d rather have your daily Purition than not at all, this could be the way to go!

Give it a really good shake and still always use milk as your mixer.

5. Stock up on whole foods

Start by having Purition for one of your daily meals and you’re already well on your way to a healthier, real food diet.

But when you’re ready to healthify your other meals, the key is to focus on eating real food in its natural state. That’s things like chicken, fish, steak, eggs, salad leaves, herbs, avocado and non-starchy vegetables.

Once you include more whole foods in your daily routine, you’ll notice you feel fuller for longer and less tempted to overeat, with much more energy to boot!

6. Keep hydrated

Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink – sip water throughout the day. Aim to drink a liter and a half of fluids every day.

Trying to cut down on caffeine? Swap one or two cups for boiled water or boiled water with lemon.

We all enjoy an alcoholic drink at the weekend – and that’s ok! But cut it out during the week if you can. If weight-loss is your goal, going off alcohol altogether is the best thing you can do.

7. Move more, if you can

If you’re completely sedentary, a brisk 10-15-minute walk every day is good enough to get you started.

Try and get your heart rate raised for at least 10 minutes each day. If you’re on your feet during the day or are already enjoying the benefits of exercise in some way, try to step it up.

Attending an exercise class or HIIT session a few extra times a week will get those endorphins going and keep you motivated and feeling great!

8. Get a good night's sleep

A good night’s sleep reduces stress, boosts your productivity, supports health and wellbeing and simply makes you feel your all-round best.

Struggle to sleep? Try switching off your digital devices an hour or two before bed, sticking to a consistent sleep schedule, avoiding caffeine after 2pm and eating no later than 2–3 hours before bed.

Aim for 7-9 hours a night, every night, if you can.
