The thing about being a food lover is you want to eat everything! You can’t make something and not eat it, it just doesn’t happen! Well I know I can’t anyway (I would be very beachball shaped if I was a chef). So I have started substituting meals, usually breakfast, with a healthy smoothie. They’re great to start the day with and they’re ridiculously tasty.
I usually cut out all dairy and sweeteners as the whole point of the smoothie for me is to be as healthy and as natural as possible. If I wanted a sugar hit I would just make a chocolate milkshake. And seriously, you don’t need sugar or milk in a fruit smoothie as they’re tasty enough as they are.
- 2 smallish Bananas
- 1 Kiwifruit
- ½ cup of Blueberries
- ½ cup of Strawberries
- 1 cup of Baby Spinach Leaves
- ½ cup Filtered Water
- 5 Ice Cubes
- Wash and peel all of the fruits. Cut the larger fruits into smaller pieces and place them all in the blender.
- The water is mostly to get the ingredients spinning around, otherwise not much at all happens when you turn the blender on. Blend for a minute or two until all the ingredients are well mixed and are smooth enough to drink.
