I love having fruit for breakfast, especially when it was the summer I was having it nearly everyday, now we are in autumn I’m still trying to have it before I start turning to the good old faithful porridge (oatmeal)!
So this morning I had my usual fruit, my favourites, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries alongside Rachel’s Organic Vanilla Yogurt, this time I sprinkled some Cacao Powder and Bee Pollen on top.
Bee Pollen is meant to be a great source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, so I’ve been trying to incorporate about a teaspoon a day!
This smoothie, wow, firstly the colour once blended was this gorgeous rich deep purple, almost like a vat of blended beetroot! This really delivered on flavour, in it’s delicacy I loved the way you could taste each fruit, without having to add a banana. The consistency of this is rather thin but if you want it to be thicker then don’t add as much water! Also for a side note, blackberries have tiny little seeds as you all know, so if you want you can sieve out the seeds after blending everything together.
- 1 Persimmon fruit – Peeled and chopped.
- 1 Cup Frozen blackberries.
- 1 Orange – Squeezed juice only.
- 1 Handful greens – spinach. (I’m going to look like Popeye at this rate!)
- 3 Ice cubes
- 1 Cup water – or less if you want it thicker!
Blend everything together and serve immediately.
This was lovely and thick, gorgeously sweet and extremely easy to do. This was definitely one of my favourites, the delicate kiwi fruit flavours were coming through and I loved the squeezed orange juice, tasted so fresh!
- 2 – Kiwi fruits Peeled!
- 1 – Persimmon fruit. Peeled!
- 1 – Orange (Juice only!)
- 1 – Apple – Peeled and cored.
- 1/2 cups Spinach
Place everything into blender with some ice (optional) and blend until desired consistency, if you want it to be thinner then please feel free to add some water starting at around a quarter of a cup!
Very tasty! x
This smoothie was gorgeous, if you want a thick smoothie then add a banana but today I wanted it to be a juice style to have alongside my workout!
- Juice of 2 large oranges.
- 1 Apple, peeled and cored.
- 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds.
- 1 Cup of Spinach
- 5 Ice cubes (optional)
Whizz up all ingredients in blender, make sure you whizz for longer than normal to break down the sunflower seeds!!
