Lola – ‘Passion for Juice’
1/4 small ripe pineapple – juiced
1/4 banana (I wanted to add more bananas)
200g natural yogurt (or soya yog)
1/2 teaspoon spirulina
Add the above to blend or nutribullet-type machine
Thai Green Smoothie – Apple, Kiwi, Spinach, Honey and Ginger.
The idea of green smoothies didn’t appeal to me until I discovered I could obscure the taste with honey and ginger. The Kiwi is a great shot of Vit C and the Spinach provides your daily intake requirement of Iron. The Spinach is an Alkali forming food, so good at neutralising over acidic stomachs, and Ginger (allegedly) helps digestion. Not forgetting “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but then so does a chronically overstretched, underfunded NHS.
Good if you feel lethargic, indigestion or acid reflux.
Jonny – Berry and Kiwi Smoothie
Its a great breakfast giving me enough energy to get through to lunch.
The flaxseed has added vitamin D which is needed during these dark gloomy months!
Maitena – Superfood Smoothie
My favourite smoothie is kale, avocado, pineapple and blueberries. Having a healthy smoothie loaded with antioxidants and good fats is a great way to ensure a healthy dessert for after Christmas period!
