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 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!
I just had to write a short something about this smoothie I had the other day, it really was gorgeous and was literally thrown together with not much thought. See I love that about fruit, the fact that you can throw a few ingredients together and you never know the flavours which will come out!
I obviously had to add a banana for thickness, I think had I not it would’ve been a little bit like a slushy because of the frozen strawberries. The frozen strawberries were just the most delicious aspect and gave it that gorgeous colour. The oat milk for me just makes the whole smoothie creamy and I usually hate that but I for some reason enjoyed it this time which has got me thinking what other smoothies I can create!!
– 1 Banana- peeled. (Seriously I am actually saying this as a disclaimer in case someone actually uses a whole banana!)
– 2 Plums- peeled & stone discarded.
– 6 Big (ish) ripe frozen Strawberries.
– Half cup of Oat Milk (Or you could use any milk that you like, maybe not cat milk…)
Place all ingredients as shown in picture above and turn on blender…done!
I am on the hunt to find not just a good smoothie, but a great smoothie!
