Super Smoothie

Smoothies are a staple in our home. Quick, easy and fun to make for the whole family.

We literally throw in a bit of this and a bit of that. But there are some constant main ingredients which provide a combination of nutrients which are going to keep us healthy and strong.

Within minutes we can blend up a healthy breakfast or snack which couldn’t be further from the processed white bread or sugared-up cereals often consumed for breakfast. It’s clean, it’s live, it’s delicious & nutritious!

Here’s one of my family’s favourite combinations:

Ingredients
  1. 3 cups of milk, coconut water & flesh or almond milk (your preference)
  2. ½ large avocado (has a neutral taste but thickens up the smoothie to an ice-cream like consistency)

  4. 1 – 2 scoops of frozen raspberries or 2 cups of sliced mango (fresh or frozen)
  5. A good dollop or two of natural yogurt
  6. A heaped spoonful of nut butter
  7. A nice pinch of cinnamon
  8. A pinch of vanilla powder
Instructions
  1. Pop all these ingredients into the blender
  2. Blend & taste (the fruit, bananas and cinnamon usually provide enough sweetness for our family, but if you need a little extra, add a tablespoon of raw honey or some medjool dates)
  3. Pour and enjoy
Notes
  1. Overipe bananas & mangoes can be frozen and used in smoothies
  2. Freeze smoothie overnight, pop into lunchbox in the morning, should thaw by lunchtime : )
