This year I decided to give myself a bit of a spring clean and get more healthy. I do generally eat pretty well but I really wanted to get more fruit and veg in so I decided to get a smoothie maker. I blogged about my Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender in my January Stamp of Approval blog post. A friend had one and was recommending it to everyone so I bought one. I’m going to sound super cheesy here but it really has changed my life. It was a bargain (only about £20) and the washing and cleaning couldn’t really be much more minimal.
I now make smoothies every other day and I do genuinely feel so much better for it. I feel healthier, have more energy and generally just feel brighter. Most of the fruit I use is frozen which means that I need to buy it so much less frequently and it doesn’t go off. I even bought frozen spinach but I do find fresh spinach to work better.
Here are some of my favourite smoothie recipes that I’ve made up over the past couple of moths:
Raspberries, spinach, avocado and pineapple
Blueberries, pineapple, spinach and banana
Blueberries, spinach and pineapple
Spinach, banana and pineapple green smoothie
This smoothie just oozes goodness! I blended fresh spinach and a banana with frozen pineapple, a bit of apple juice and water.
