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!
A quick recipe which I literally couldn’t get enough of!
You will need-
6 (or more) frozen bananas
2-3 tbsp (depending on how many bananas you use and how much of an addict you are!) peanut butter (homemade is best!)
2 (or more) Medjool dates (pitted and soaked for a few hours in about half a cup of water)
2 tbsp Carob powder
1 tbsp Cacao nibs
2 tsp cocoa powder (optional)
Using your blender, blend the frozen bananas with a small splash of water until you get a beautiful ice cream consistency, now you can add the peanut butter after this stage or swirl it in after! Totally up to you!
Next blend the dates, along with the water they have been soaked in, you can add more but I like a thick consistency, then add in the carob powder and the cocoa powder (if you want a proper chocolatey flavour!)
Put in bowl, cup or hey you can even use your hands…I wont judge!
Sprinkle over some Cacao nibs for the crunch factor and wow, perfection in a bowl (or hands..!)
