Strawberry and banana smoothie

This recipe is my favourite for a snack as it is nice and light with just the right amount of sweetness. My daughter loves this one because it is beautifully pink! So I normally have to make double the quantity so there's enough to go around.      Ingredients (serves 1) ¾ cup of your milk of choice 3 frozen strawberries Half a frozen banana 4 ice cubes ½ teaspoon of honey     Method Place all ingredients into a blender and process on high speed for 1 min And then share it around.     Enjoy!

What’s left to eat? A healthy and realistic approach for the rest of us.

Personally, I can’t keep up with all the “healthy eating” fads. Can you? Low carb. No carb. High fat. No fat. Dairy free. Sugar free. Gluten free. Paleo. High protein. Raw. No sugar.

The go to green smoothie

Green smoothies are all the rage and it's definitely a great way of getting an extra serve of vegetables into your day. And it's delicious! This recipe uses baby spinach which I personally prefer over kale. The banana adds a little sweetness and the avocado makes it nice and creamy with the added benefit of good quality fat.     Ingredients (serves 1) 1 cup of baby spinach 1 cup of water 1 frozen banana ¼ of an avocado Juice of ¼ lemon     Method Place baby spinach and water into a blender and process for 30 sec Add remaining ingredients and process for a further 45 sec That's it! So quick and simple.     Enjoy! Georgia ...


Banana breakfast smoothie

Who doesn’t love a smoothie? I love mine as a quick breakfast option, an afternoon snack or a little treat on a hot day. I think smoothies are best when they are ice-cold, so I always try and have frozen fruit on hand. But if I have forgotten, I'll throw in a handful of ice which usually does the trick. I invested in a thermomix a few years ago and I absolutely love it! But you don’t need one to make a smoothie, there are so many good blender options on the market that make light work of whizzing up a few ingredients. I thought I would pop up a few of my favourite recipes over the next few weeks for you guys to try. Let me...
