Carrot, banana, blueberry and hazelnut smoothie

    10 min

    This gleaming glass of purpleyness makes the most fantastic breakfast smoothie. I made mine using frozen fruits which makes a very thick smoothies indeed. In fact I had to help my smoothie out of the NutriNinja bullet with a spoon! And I love the creaminess of whole milk - especially as this recipe doesn't use any yoghurt. The addition of hazelnut butter really does make this smoothie something special, and at around 400 calories it's a balanced and satisfying meal replacement. I added a handful of frozen mango just to soften the acidity of the blueberries, and I think it worked. The nuttiness lasted right down to the bottom of the glass and I really loved that lingering flavour.

    1. Add the ingredients to your smoothie bullet in the order listed above. Pulse/blitz until combined. If it's too think for your personal taste, add a little water and re-blitz. Pour into a pint glass, add a straw and enjoy!


    I buy very ripe bananas, often at knock-down prices, and freeze them. I line baking trays with greaseproof or parchment, then create rows of banana slices - not touching each other - so that when they're frozen I can bag them into loose and easy-to-use portions. This works with melon, mango, strawberries, pineapple, papaya - and freezing reduced price fruits makes me feel very happy too!
