Healthy Shots! (The Easiest Way To Get Your 5-A-Day)

My friends, I clearly missed my calling as a rocket scientist or a philosopher because I have just solved one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

Hello, my favourite internet junkies, what’s life thrown at you today? Oh, really? That sounds awful. Well, don’t worry because Mama Mia is here (Don’t. Fucking. Say. It.) to make it all better. Today, I am sharing my magic trick with you; my life’s work, my legacy.

You know how Jesus made wine? The big J has nothing on this. It sounds impossible, but guys . . . I made shots healthy. Now, when am I going to get my own cult spanning the ages pls? I’ll wait.

Let me tell you a tale: At my core, I am a good Catholic girl. Angelic, some may say.

Unfortunately, this world just corrupts poor innocents like me and . . . well, Britain’s drinking culture is no joke. (God, I love this country.)

Through entirely no fault of my own – we’ll start with my parents and work our way down from there – I actually am not a Catholic girl at all and my prayers are pretty much reserved for my liver post-Saturday night. It was as I was making myself a smoothie on one such post-Saturday Sunday morning that I was hit with . . . inspiration.

Follow my train of thought and see if you get me.

  • Ew, smoothies.
  • Last night was fun.
  • I really don’t want to drink this.
  • Blerg.
  • Why do we even shot alcohol?
  • Yep, nope I was right this is gross . . .
  • Karma I swear to fucking god if this doesn’t count as penance, I want a refund.
  • Wait – back to shots. We shot because in their right mind wants to sip on bloody tequila.
  • Well, I don’t want to sip on this

Inspiration hit me. If I can shot shit that is awful for me (hello, Tequila), why can’t I shot things that are healthy?

So welcome to today’s post.

If you remember my Week In The Life post, you may remember me briefly mentioning this. And if you don’t, isn’t it just so convenient that the video is embedded right here?


Essentially, the idea is this: instead of making massive smoothies padded out with super sugar-full (and delicious) fruits and juices and yogurts . . . make teeny tiny “super smoothies” with all the things we don’t actually want to eat but definitely should and shot them.

Things that you could try putting in these shots:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Brocolli
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes

Now, I won’t lie to you – these burn just as much as vodka does going down. It’s not pleasant and . . . well, you don’t even get drunk off them. However, they’re a great way to get some of your essential nutrients into your diet quickly and relatively painlessly.

Okay, folks, that’s it for today’s post! If you’re into your healthy eating, make sure you check out My Healthy 5 Min Breakfast and My 2 Ingredient Fruit Pancakes for some simple breakfast inspo – and take a follow of my healthy eating Pinterest board!

  1. Save me Jesus, from this wicked fucking witch (despite her Marshall on 11 coolness… which is no excuse).

      1. Watching Star Wars attack of the clones. That scene where Padme tells Anakin he will always be that little boy… brilliant.
        Best is the Maori security chief who just looks over as if to say…. Jesus Christ of the star Wars universe or not, i will break his neck if he takes one leg or wing off my plate

    1. Pret do a cleansing shot with ginger and apple juice and it is literally the best thing when you can feel yourself getting ill. I too hate sipping on smoothies so the idea of being able to take a shot and be done with it appeals to me. xx

      1. What a helpful blog post! Normally healthy shots sort of scare me… However, I’m definitely down to try out these ones. I’ve started drinking matcha tea every morning and gosh it’s amazing – you should give it a go <3 Have a wonderful week Mia xx

      2. Never tried these but I heard for them. The way you wrote this post was so fun to read – I actually smiled all the way through the post!:’D Not big fan of to many mixed greens but as you said, if I can do vodka than I should also try these haha! xx

      3. Lol Mia, I’m already cracking up just at your intro. First of all, you called yourself “Mama Mia” & then you referred to Jesus as the Big J. πŸ˜‚

        I’m nervous to try those shots so I’ll just stick to tequila & vodka since I can get drunk off those & stop tasting them after awhile. πŸ˜‚ Such a creative & great idea though!!! πŸ’Ÿ

        1. Why thank you πŸ˜‰ And um… hungover mia is not responsible for any possible blasphemy she may have typed πŸ˜€

          I can’t blame you on that girl! At least tequila and vodka are fun ;-; Thanks for reading, Hunida <3

      4. Holy shit this is genius. I am the equivalent of an eight year old child when it comes to eating my five and two a day, some days I just don’t, but this feels like such a good option??? Like definitely post-Saturday night?? I went out for my birthday and Saturday and would have really appreciated seeing this post on Sunday morning!! xx

        1. Ahaha thank you, I fully expect to be taught about in history lessons for years to come πŸ˜‰ And YES EXACTLY like bro you can’t expect me to SIT DOWN AND EAT FUCKING BROCOLLI, I don’t hate my life. DRINKING it in a shot though? Achievable. Also OMG IT WAS YOUR BIRTHDAY? HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRIYA, MORE HEALTH MORE WEALTH BBYGIRL! <3 <3

          1. I think I would like to try them at least once but I don’t think i could do a shot of kale. I didn’t like it in smoothies, the taste was much too strong for me lol.

          2. I prefer doing shots as well! I am so slow at drinking anything, smoothies turn brown before I can finish them. I am been using a greens powder because I am lazy though haha.
