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)

  5. 1-2 teaspoons raw honey (optional)
  6. 1/4 - 1/2 cup natural yogurt

  8. A nice pinch of cinnamon
  9. A pinch of vanilla powder (optional)
  10. Ice
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 the 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 : )
