Pear Breakfast Smoothie

| Breakfast, Drinks and Smoothies, Uncategorized

This is a simple yet satisfying smoothie that I quickly throw together when I need a breakfast on the run.  From time to time I buy a big bunch of ripe bananas, chop them into thirds and throw them into a ziplock bag before popping it into the freezer.  It lurks there happily, waiting to be popped into my smoothie of choice.

Pear SmoothieIngredients

  • 2 ripe pears (I particularly love ripe forelle pears)
  • 1 large frozen ripe banana
  • 1 flat teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 rounded teaspoon flax seed
  • 1 cup of ice water

Instructions
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Add more water until desired consistency is achieved.

Blueberry Superfood Smoothie

| Breakfast, Drinks and Smoothies

Superfood Blueberry SmoothieThis is a lovely rich smoothie to have after a heavy morning workout.  It is full of superfoods to leave you feeling energised all day!  It is ever so slightly adapted from this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large frozen ripe banana
  • ½ cup blueberries (I use frozen ones from woolies)
  • 2 teaspoons flax seeds
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 5-8 pitted dates, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or other nut butter)
  • About 1 cup cold water or plant-based milk of choice (start with half a cup and add while blending until consistency is drinkable through a straw)
  • You can add agave or honey to taste for a sweeter smoothie.  Personally, I like it just as is.  The dates leave little chewy bits which give a lovely burst of sweetness!

Instructions:
Put all the ingredients into your blender and blend.  You may need to give a stir here and there and scrape down the sides of the blender jug.

Top with blueberries, walnuts and a swirl of honey or however you prefer.

Slurp away!
