For a scrumptious treat on-the-go, try these tried and tested smoothie recipes. I’ll be updating the page as I discover more delectable combinations so stay tuned!
Adam’s Second Breakfast Smoothie
100g Natural Unsweetened Greek Yoghurt
10g Chia seeds
120g water (I prefer chilled)
100g Frozen Mixed Berries
Method: Whack it all in a blender. Drink up.
Tips: Put the yoghurt in closest to the blades so the chia seeds don’t get caught and create more cleaning time.
Variations: The banana and yoghurt are such a great base for many flavours. Experiment if you’d like to – in the past I’ve replaced the berries with mango for a tropical twist. You can also add plain protein powder for a more substantial smoothie.
Fancy Water – For ANY occasion!
Have you ever had people randomly pop by and you don’t have anything to offer them except the normal kitchen beverage staples? Well I have a solution for you! Thanks to my mum’s creativity this will not only taste great, but make you look super fancy! Haha! Do this for yourself too for a tiz-up on the most basic beverage…water!
Water (Iced, Tap or Soda)
Frozen Mixed Berries
Method: Pour some water into a glass (make as much or as little as you need), then simply add a small amount of the mixed berries and fresh mint. That’s it! The frozen berries keep the drink cold, and with a tad of mint, they add a freshness to the water.
Tip: Frozen berries make life so much easier! They’re about $4 from the supermarket and can be used for fancy water, baking in muffins, blending to make a coolie, and added to yoghurt! I also have a Soda Stream which has been the best thing EVER! A canister lasts a few months for us and we use it almost every day. I definitely recommend buying one if you love bubbles but don’t want the sugar (I don’t add the syrup)!
Variations: Other popular combinations are frozen raspberries or blueberries and mint, lemon and mint, lemon and lime etc.
