Recently my husband and I went out on a dinner date to a lovely Japanese restaurant, where I sampled a green juice similar to the one I have made here. What is so lovely about this particular juice is that you can taste all the different levels of fruit and veg within. Blending the pulp as well keeps all of the goodness in!
I can totally see myself having this drink over and over again definitely a thirst quencher whether in the winter when you need a immune vitamin boost or in the summer when you need something so very refreshing!
2 sticks of celery
8 green grapes
Handful of fresh mint
Handful of spinach
100ml apple juice
Dash of fresh lime
Add all ingredients into a drinks blender and whizz til smooth
Serve cold, but do stir as the celery will sink to the bottom of the glass
So you know when you first have a baby and the first foods to wean them on are avocado and banana smashed together. I never tried it until now! But I can see why babies like it. I incorporated these two wonderful superpower food ingredients into the smoothie for today with blueberries full of antioxidants but to add a slight kick with a strawberry cordial running through it!
Such a creamy consistency. Blend yourself one…sit back and enjoy your weekend! Much love D x
Half an avocado
1 small banana
Handful of frozen blueberries
200ml diluted strawberry cordial drink
Blitz well in a blender or smoothie maker. Add water if you like it more juice like
We are going to have pizza tonight, so an hour before I decided to line my stomach with a fresh minty and fruity smoothie. This way I’ll feel a little less guilty knowing that I have fruit in my tummy before I consume huge amounts of pizza yumminess!
1 small banana peeled
1 pear sliced into chunks
A few sprigs of fresh mint
1 cup pineapple juice
Blitz all the ingredients in a Nutri Bullet or blender until smooth
Serve with some ice or add a little water if the smoothie is too thick
I do not get through much fruit unless its in a cake on a cake or around a cake!
So having invested in a smoothie maker is the best thing I could have done for me especially! I love chewing on seeds but am not partial to the goji berry. Which is extremely good for you.
This way I get all my antioxidant goodness in the one glass first thing in the morning and I’m ready to face the day with a healthy outlook…until I eat the naughty treat I shouldn’t have had at lunch…lol 😉
I’ll be putting up more of my smoothie recipes. I hope you enjoy them friends!
Large handful of blueberries
1 medium banana
Sprinkling of seeds and goji berries
