So it looks like summer might actually be making an appearance – finally! This makes the timing of this post pretty perfect.
Today I wanted to share some smoothie recipes with you. Fi always makes smoothies, especially after a run, but it’s not something I ever do. The main reason for this is that all smoothies I come across (both shop bought and recipes) contain banana and I hate the taste of banana. I swear if something has the hint of banana in then I will sniff it out. I think they use the banana as a binding ingredient or something so it’s in practically every drink. So I basically steer clear of smoothies all together. The only one that I do drink is Innocent’s kiwi, apple and limes as it contains no banana – whoop whoop for me!
Although i’ve just never bothered to make them in case they turn out badly. That is until I received a message from my youngest sister saying ‘try this smoothie, just made it. It’s delicious and there’s no banana’. She knows me so well. So of course at the first opportunity I grabbed the ingredients and got blending. The result was delicious and therefore I am sharing it with you lovely people.
Becca’s banana free fruit smoothie
2 apples chopped roughly into chunks
juice from half a lime
cup of water
a handful of ice cubes
Now simply drop all the ingredients into a blender and whizz up. Pour into a glass add a straw and enjoy.
As I mentioned above Fi always makes smoothies. Here’s her go to recipe.
Fi’s Berry Smoothie
1 cup of raspberries
a smidge (so helpful here Fi) of water or milk
Add everything to a blender and blitz away.
What about you guys do you have any delicious smoothie recipes? Do let us know as we’d love to try some different things.
