- 1 apple
- 1 banana
- Fresh spinach
- Frozen summer fruits
- Fresh cranberry and raspberry juice
- A smoothie blender
- A chopping board
- A chopping knife
- A cup for your smoothie
Finally add the juice, this is just the water down the fruit so that it blends properly and isn't too thick.
You can use water if you like but I prefer to add to the flavours further by using juice.
One word... Blend!
I bought the Salter - Personal Blender with 2 bottles. It was a great price and I thought it was the perfect size for me being at University.
It's quick and easy to use, so it's great to have one at breakfast because I can whip one up in 5 minutes and then take it to my early morning lectures with me to wake me up and kick start my day with a tasty nutritious smoothie.
Now you can enjoy a healthy and great tasting smoothie. I've never really thought of having smoothies but when the holiday was booked and I realised that I wasn't eating anywhere near enough fruit, I decided to give it a go.
I've been having smoothies 4/5 days a week now for 3 weeks and I feel so much better in myself. It's a great way of getting the minerals and nutrients that you need and only having to have one drink instead of 5 pieces of fruit separately throughout the day.
They make for a very filling snack at dinner time too!
I want to start getting more adventurous with my smoothie recipes so hopefully soon I will attempt some strange recipes, maybe with vegetables.
