Check it out. Five of my favourite smoothie recipes- I decided to whack them into one post after a friend mentioned she’d love a quick reference.

Perfect for post-yoga/workout .
Great on the weekend when you are running about with no time to stop and eat.
Yummy healthy afternoon snack.

No need to chop. No need to do anything really. Just bung it all in and hit the (right!) buttons on your blender. No nutrients lost (all whole, live foods and raw ingredients) and no fibre lost either. These smoothies are packed with Superfoods (maca, cacao, berries, chia seeds) and lots of greenage (spinach, kale, cos) or good fats (avocado, coconut oil) and great non-dairy milks! You’ll be getting an incredibly nourishing energy.

A few tips re: measurements. Where I haven’t given a measurement/amount (e.g. water, milk, spinach, cos) I tend to just free pour and just chuck in handfuls depending on what kind of consistency I want that day.

The fun in smoothie experimenting is just that – it’s an experiment. See what you like/don’t like. Try it out and aim for something that tastes delicious to you! Let’s be frank. Being healthy can be fun and easy, but if you are trying to force something vile down your throat, you are never going to maintain it, are you? So healthy, yes, but delicious is a must!

  1. I've spent the last week doing a raw veggie shake 3 times a day; it's incredible!!! I feel alive, I feel so many things that are hard to describe, the improvements are so much better that I can say it feels like being reborn. Thank you for these recipes!
