Packed with fresh fruit, yoghurt and peanut-y greatness – this is your breakfast bullet smoothie.
Until a little while ago I was staying away from all dairy products, including yoghurt because I thought they were contributing to the all day headaches I used to get. I’m still convinced that most dairy products do not agree with me all that much but I’m more than happy to have discovered that plain greek yoghurt is actually not one of the culprits. Yay! Yoghurt and me are friends again.
Since this discovery, I have been spending many an early morning experimenting with different fruit smoothie combinations. This one has come up trumps in my book! I just love these flavours together, so summery and fresh. You can manage to pack a whole lot of goodness into one little glass, and it’s quick to prepare and goes down the hatch in a flash.
I use a hand held blender for smoothies and soups, I find it’s SO easy to clean and you can blend a huge saucepan of soup or a small smoothie bowl without the extra fuss of having to pour your ingredients into a blender, and sometimes having to blend multiple batches. Blenders have their place for sure, but it’s so handy to have a hand held blender for recipes like this. (No.Pun.Intended)
This is a simple one, just throw everything into a bowl and whizz it up! Go wild trying your own combinations, I’ll bet a little coconut milk would be delicious. Use any berry, bananas are great because they add some sweetness. Pineapple is amazing in smoothies. Find flavour combinations that you love and try them in a smoothie – let me know how they turn out!
