Banana, Raspberry & Almond Smoothie
January is the month for cleaning up your act when it comes to eating.
It the time of the year when you have to confess that the strawberry creme truffles that you’ve been guzzling are not, in fact, part of your Five A Day! Getting healthy and eating clean has been a top priority in our home this year and I’ve been kick starting this health kick with lots and lots of fruits and veggies.
Nutribullet, from £99
One of my fave Christmas gifts this year was a super fancy blender – or should I say a nutrition extractor! The Nutribullet has already proved to be worth its weight in gold…which is really saying something considering as there is alway stye danger that it will become yet another kitchen gadget that is relegated to the back of a cupboard and never to see the light of day. So far (and I appreciate that we’re only a couple of weeks into January!) this has remained on the kitchen counter top and has been used every day!
I’m still getting to grips with drinking veggies, but so far fruit smoothies are a big hit! Breakfast smoothies are a game changer – they taste delicious, fill you up and there has got to be something good about getting in some of goodness right at the start of the day! I’ve been going crazy for this Banana, Raspberry & Almond Smoothie at breakfast – here’s my quick and easy recipe!
Grab your ingredients…
1 cup of frozen raspberries
1 cup of almond milk
Add the raspberries, chopped bananas, almonds and almond milk to the blender cup and blitz!
Did I mention that this is the quickest breakfast recipe ever? Yet another thing I love about morning smoothies!
I’m so in love with this new blender – quick and easy healthy foods have got to be a winner – I can’t wait to try out more delicious flavour combinations and to give green smoothies a shot!
