Smoothies

Everyone seems to be making them & drinking them.  If you’re using the right ingredients they can be used as a meal & can be highly nutritious. 

Try non dairy smoothies too, you don’t always have to use milk. Almond or coconut milks add a creamy, nutty taste. Or coconut water is ideal for an even lighter option.

Make a couple of serves & enjoy over a couple if mornings. Rather than watering down your smoothies with ice, try freezing your selected fruits/vegetables overnight & then blend. You’ll find you have no use for ice.
Add a vegetable to a smoothie with a higher fruit content. You’ll enjoy the taste & not notice the addition of spinach, celery or pumpkin.

Smoothies are good if you’re pressed for time in the mornings, lunchtimes or even dinner times.  There’s so much that can be added to them, seeds, nuts, superfoods- goji, bee pollen or chia as an example. 

The possibilities are endless. Use what’s in season & keep a couple of packs of frozen berries in the freezer & also a few peeled & chopped bananas.
