Smoothies


Does anyone have a Breville Blend Active or Nutri Bullet etc.

What do you make in yours ? I want to start making breakfast smoothies as I always seem to skip breakfast when doing the school run !

Any ideas ?! Thanks

I donít have either...but I do make smoothies when Iím running out of energy around 4pm and itís still a while until dinner.

If they can blitz frozen fruit I find that works great and I like the thicker texture it gives. I buy a bunch of bananas and when theyíre at the point I like them, I cut them up and portion one banana at a time in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer. Then I have frozen strawberries too as I hate the waste from fresh strawberries and I actually think they taste sweeter. At the moment Iím not being too inventive just strawberry and banana but there are loads of recipes out there!

I have a Nutri Ninja and my favourite smoothie is frozen pineapple, frozen strawberries, a small banana, big dollop of vanilla yoghurt and some water as it's very thick!

I have the blend active it's fab!

I take a smoothie every morning to work as I don't eat before leaving home. I drink it in the car

I use one frozen banana, 5 tablespoons of oats, 2 tablespoons of linseed, half tablespoon of chia seeds, squeeze of honey and blend with milk. Keeps me full til lunch xx

I do this with bananas! They are best when turning brown. Nice and sweet xx
