January 2016 – Recipes from our Smooth(ie) Operators

Lola – ‘Passion for Juice’

If lola-phillipsyou ever attempt a 7 day juice and smoothie diet – this one is a God-send on day three. It feels like real food!

1/4 small ripe pineapple – juiced

1 appleNewsletter

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

 

Eds – ‘Thai Green Smoothie’ eds-chesters

Thai Green Smoothie – Apple, Kiwi, Spinach, Honey and Ginger.

Newsletter 2The 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

My favourite jonathan-juvilersmoothie is made up of banana, strawberry, kiwi, blueberries, yoghurNewsletter 4t, almond milk, a drizzle of honey and a spoon of milled flaxseed.

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!
