If you’re looking for some really easy smoothie recipes, in
a bit of a rush in the morning or can’t really be bothered to buy lots of fruit
& veg then check out the Co-Op.
They sell a really good Breakfast Smoothie Mix in a bag which
is split into 4 packs made up of banana, blueberries, strawberries, yogurt
& oats. I think it retails for about £2.
You just need to add either 150ml water, milk or coconut
water to the mix, blast it in your food mixer & hey presto you have a
smoothie to go. They recommend apple juice but I feel adding juice can really send
your sugar intake sky high for the day & kind of defeats making a smoothie
as you could just have the apple juice on its own.
The sachets are 110g & once made up I split them into
two drinks, one for breakfast & another for lunch or dinner.
Also, if you want to bulk out the smoothie a bit more, throw
in some raspberries or banana. I deskin my bananas & pop them in the
freezer ready for smoothies, otherwise they just go brown sitting on the side.
Give it a whirl &
let me know what you think. Do you have any good smoothie recipes to share? I’m
always on the lookout for new healthy ideas. Pop it in the comments box below.
