This is a healthy, fast and delicious breakfast that a friend of mine invented when we had no bread or cereal in the house, and we've all been hooked on it since! You can use whatever fruit and flavour of yoghurt you want, anything goes - my personal favourite is made with apple and banana with coconut yoghurt.
This is a three-ingredient fruity smoothie which everyone will enjoy. Great for a non fizzy drink at a child's party!
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.
FOG stands for Full of Goodness and it uses all the 5 vegetables that you need for your daily allowance. I made up this soup after I found a few odd veggies in the fridge. It's great for lunch with a bit of bread. This recipe is for one, but can easily be doubled, tripled, etc. for more!
This is an easy recipe for those who want to stay in shape, but want to indulge in a sweet treat every now and then.
This super thick and creamy fruit smoothie is a firm favourite in my home and with friends, and is a great way of ensuring your contributing to your 5 a day. Full of flavour and packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fibre. For an extra healthy boost, sprinkle in some flax seeds. This was a firm favourite of mine in the summer months to drink after working out.
This great smoothie is easy to make and uses simple everyday fruit! All quantities are equal e.g. 100g of apple and 100g of grapes.
MmmMmm...mix and match of ingredients for a great summer drink. For a colder option, simply pour over ice just prior to serving.
A healthy, light smoothie ideal for having as a substitute for snacking. A great option for getting in your five a day.
This is for those who enjoy a liquid, quick fix to fill them up , its filling, healthy and cheap. Lunch, tea or a snack.
