All in Juices and smoothies
When the weather gets warmer we love nothing better than a smoothie for breakfast. This smoothie is deliciously creamy due to the addition of avocado and banana. Suitable for children - the first time I made this my daughter drank most of it! There is some protein from the avocado, but not much, so if you want to drink on its own then you might want to add a few nuts. I often like a smoothie post run and then I’ll have lunch a few hours later.
That sweet taste of summer... belongs to the gorgeous strawberry! We simply can't resist them, especially when you grow your own. This granita is so quick and easy to make and very versatile. Perfect to serve and present as a grown-up dessert for your barbecue with friends or equally loved by kids like a healthy slushy refreshing treat. Perfect for batch making for those summer evenings.
Smoothies are a quick, easy, practical and versatile way to refuel efficiently during sports events. Packed full of nutrients, real fresh ingredients, they should become your best friends.
This new smoothie tastes like a treat and contains balanced amounts of good carbs, fibres and protein, with the added bonus of that sweet summer strawberry flavour.
When the weather gets warmer we love nothing better than a smoothie for breakfast. It's light and refreshing. The problem with many of the smoothies or smoothie mixes from the freezer you can buy from supermarkets is they are really high in fruit not vegetables and there's no protein to keep you full. This has protein from the chia seeds, healthy fat from the flaxseed and a good mix of vegetables with a touch of sweet from the mango.
Who else loves a pretty smoothie? We love a colourful smoothie but especially when mornings get brighter and warmer. This berry smoothie is very simple and versatile and makes a prefect pre or post-workout fuel. It can be dairy-free, made from fresh or frozen berries, and even turned into healthy ice cream. What's not to love?
Could this purple bit of goodness be any prettier? Not only will a smoothie offer one of the easiest and most versatile way to add goodness to a healthy diet, I have found that with kids, it is such a practical on-the-go way to supplement their diets with essential vitamins and minerals they may lack. Packed full of seasonal ingredients they have become part of our daily life.

This new smoothie is sunshine on tap and nice little health boost for a peachy smooth skin.
This fresh tasting mint smoothie is the perfect accompaniment to a summer weekend breakfast or a mid morning pick me up. We have made it sweet to appeal to children as well, but if it's only for you, then you might find that one pear, or even none, will do. There's no protein in the smoothie so it's not a substitute to breakfast. If you want to eat on its own then include a handful of almonds in the smoothie.
Who does not like a smoothie? The super healthy green ones, the beautiful looking purple ones, the candy coloured berry ones and summery yellow ones... but what about the one that looks just like a chocolate pudding ? Still healthy and amazingly balanced and nutritious for a supercharged breakfast before exams or a big workout! An all round winner for the whole family.
Sometime, a beautiful purple, green or yellow smoothie is not going to do the job! 3 years ago I embarked on a fairly long journey to convince my pre-teen Rugby mad son that I could make him a healthy, nutritious and energy boosting shake to take to rugby training rather than him bowing down to the peer pressure of gulping a fluorescent blue or orange energy drink! Today, I can happily report that I have now been making this shake every Sunday morning for the past 18 months and it is always happily consumed entirely!
Inspired by nature. Spring is on everyone's mind the minute the golden daffodils appear in gardens and across the countryside in the UK, and it also inspired this mango smoothie. Although not grown in this country, and always imported, mango is available all year round and is a great staple fruit to keep in your freezer alongside frozen berries ans frozen spinach.
A Health Boost favourite is a homemade smoothie. My children will often make this for themselves pre-football or hockey and with protein in the form of chia seeds, it keeps them going. This could be drunk in the car on the way to sport and, because it’s nut free, could be finished after or during sport too.
