Smoothies are a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast or snack. By using frozen fruits, you can make into a creamy and fresh smoothie bowl and tailor to the flavours you like.
A good formula for making up smoothies is:
- 1 .5 cups fruit (ideally frozen, but you can also include a combination with fresh and dried)
- 1/4- 1/3 cup something thicker (e.g yoghurt, oats, nut meal, avocado, green leafy vegies such as spinach leaves. desiccated coconut)
- 3/4 liquid (e.g. milk, coconut water, juice)
- 1/2 – 2tbsp of added extras (e.g. spices, chia seeds, matcha powder, cacao, vanilla essence, peanut butter, other nuts)
Blend these ingredients for a few minutes and your ready to go (just add your toppings of choice if you’re making a smoothie bowl!)
