Recently I was pretty ill and unfortunately it was one of those illnesses where eating solid food was difficult for a little bit (don’t worry I am back to steak and (home-made) chips now…well those thin minute steaks cut in to small pieces, not quite ready for a 140z Sirloin yet!).
Anyways, a friend suggested I make smoothies as I transition back. Good idea I thought. So off I went, bought a cheap blender, some fruit (which is bloody expensive these days) and began experimenting. I’ve been doing it for about 5-6 days now and come up with some interesting recipes so decided to share them as I go. I’m sure some’ll be good, and others not so good (I might share those too so that anyone reading doesn’t make the same mistakes I did).
Disclaimer: My recipes generally consist of using whatever is in cupboard/fridge/fruit-bowl, there is very little science or known health benefits.
So this is what I created this morning!!!!
Ingredients – all measurements are very much approximate 🙂
- 3 Kiwi Fruits
- 2 hand fulls of spinach
- 1/2 Avocado
- c. 150ml Apple Juice
- Fresh Lime Juice (I squeezed out about a half a lime)
- About a teaspoon of fresh ginger
- 7-10 ice-cubes
- [Optional] 2 teaspoons of Manuka Honey (adjust for sweetness – I like sweet. Also, I’m sure any honey will do just as well. All I had in my house was Manuka Honey so that’s what I used!)
Put everything in your blender and blitz it until smooth. I’d recommend putting the honey in last and adjusting the amount to suit your level of sweetness. Enjoy.
