Smoothie Time

Sunday, 2 September 2012

We’ve gone a little smoothie crazy in this house.  I’ve been having fun experimenting with different flavours and throwing in some pretty interesting ingredients.  Here are our current favourites...
Basic recipe, makes one large smoothie
200ml almond milk or milk of your choice. (If you are using unsweetened you might want to add some honey to your smoothie to taste). 
Handful of kale, stems removed and finely chopped (you could try spinach instead)
½ - 1teaspoon Spirulina (optional)
1 frozen banana (peel banana, chop in to chunks and freeze on a plate in your freezer for two hours)
1 tablespoon natural yoghurt
100g fruit.  I used frozen blackberries or fresh blueberries.
In a blender or food processor place the almond milk and kale.  Blend until well combined and no chunks of kale remain.  Add the other ingredients one by one until you have a delicious smooth texture.  You can adjust things according to your taste and desired consistency.  I like a fairly thick smoothie. 
Drink and feel like the healthiest person alive!
