How to make a healthy purple smoothie!

I thought I’d experiment around with different berries/fruits and ingredients as you do in hot summer weather and ended up making this purple berry smoothie – it’s very IMG_20170710_170304refreshing, healthy and easy to make! All you need is:

A handful of blueberries

A handful of blackberries

1 banana

2 large spoons of Greek yoghurt, or plain if you prefer

Half a cup of milk (use less if you want a thicker consistency)

(Optional) A tablespoon of mixed fruit/seeds – I just used a sachet of  mixed dry banana, dates and seeds from Tesco: https://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=290596363

Simply wash and then mix everything in a blender thoroughly (cut the banana into smaller pieces), serve and enjoy!

How to make a simple and easy breakfast smoothie!

Smoothies for breakfast (or whenever you like!) can be so refreshing and so here is a really simple and easy recipe for one! There are endless variations in making them and you can get as creative as you wish! For this berry version all you need is:

A bananaIMG_20151121_221635

Mixed berries  – I used frozen as not only are they far cheaper than fresh ones but taste just as good, as well as lasting longer.

Half a cup of milk

Single or double cream (optional)

Plain yoghurt – you could add any sort of plain yoghurt you’d like. Greek yoghurt would give the smoothie a nice texture but I only had the standard plain yoghurt 🙂

Simply blend everything in, and voila, a simple smoothie! 😀
