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!

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

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

  • 1 – 2 scoops of frozen raspberries
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw honey optional
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup natural yogurt
  • Handful of raw cashews
  • A nice pinch of cinnamon
  • A pinch of vanilla powder optional
  • Ice


  • Pop all these ingredients into the blender
  • 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)
  • Pour and enjoy


Overipe bananas & mangoes can be frozen and used in smoothies
Freeze smoothie overnight, pop into lunchbox in the morning, should thaw by lunchtime : )

Check out these 6 health benefits you and your family will get from the wonderful nutritious ingredients:

1. Coconut – the water is low-calorie and high in electrolytes, the meat has healing properties because of it’s high lauric acid content
2. Natural yogurt – is a high-quality protein, is rich in vitamins and minerals & is a wonderful natural probiotic
3. Nut butter – great source of protein, good fats and dietary fibre
4. Cinnamon – provides flavor and natural sweetness, digestion and good for blood sugar levels
5. Avocado – It’s considered a superfood and contains good fats & has beautifying qualities
6. Raspberries – are low GI and jam-packed full of anti-oxidants
