Fruit boosting smoothie recipes to see you through Spring

Friday, 11 April 2014

Now Spring is well and truly here, it’s time to indulge in some health boosting fruit packed smoothies.

Perfect if you’re bored of wintry porridge and cereals, a quick pick-me-up smoothie can cram in a handful of your five a day before you’ve even reached the office.

So without further a do, and with my new retro-styled Breville blender to hand, I’ll be making and sharing delicious yet healthy smoothie recipes for you to try out.

Strawberry & Banana Breakfast Shake

The first in line to kick off my recipe marathon is a fail-safe colour sensation with simple ingredients that don’t involve spending a shed load of cash on exotic fruits only available in Waitrose.

But don’t be fooled – although this thick, pink shake may only require a few bits and pieces from your fruit bowl and fridge, it’s fruity, filling contents will keep hunger at bay and your tastebuds tingling.

I usually make one of these fruity numbers before work and find it actually keeps me fuller than sugar crammed cereals and my favourite golden syrup porridge. 

You’ll need:

1 x cup of milk
5 x large strawberries
2 x banana
Little squeeze of honey
1 x tablespoon of rolled oats

Makes two smoothies

Fruity facts
§  According to the BBC eight strawberries have more vitamin C than an orange.
§  The heart shaped berries have high levels of antioxidants – polyphenols – and are both sodium and fat-free. That’s a win right there.

Stay tuned for more smoothie recipes coming up. And if you try this out - let me know what you think :)
