My Daily Morning Smoothie

This past week and a bit i've been trying to get back into my summer diet (i don't diet ), really i just eat more healthy. 
Lots of fresh food and i try to cut down on my carb in-take as i could eat my body weight and more in bread (my major downfall).

So to help kick start my self i bought my self a shiny new blender... 
Yes i did do a wee happy dance for the fact it can blend ice on the lowest setting!!
This magical blender is a Waring Pro Classic 1.2Litre. 


For breakfast every morning for the past week i've been whipping up smoothies jammed backed with lots of yummy fresh fruit and what ever's kicking around the kitchen. 

I haven't made a recipe as such because i never tend to take measurements i just throw in handfuls,pinches and tablespoons anything what takes my fancy really. 

I don't particularly like putting ice in my smoothies because personally i think it waters it down. So i replace the ice by freezing my fresh fruit (berries and bananas mostly).


  • 1-2 Banana, sliced (Frozen)
  • Handful of Berries (Frozen)
  • Some Milk (to thin it out)
  • Greek Yogurt (Dash or 2)
  • Small Handful of Rolled Oats 
  • 2 Tangerines (Peeled and segmented)
  • Squeeze of Honey (for sweetness)
  • Pinch or Two of Fresh Ginger (finely grated)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Spirulina (100 nutrients)
  • Grated in 80% Dark Chocolate (a wee treat)
  • 1 Tablespoon of left over Passion Fruit Curd
Well i think thats everything.. It changes daily depending on what we have in the house. 

I prefer my smoothies really thick but my mum prefers her's a bit thinner so if your let her just add in more milk.

Love, Lx

  6. I love smoothies and I'm always finding new recipes to try out! Your smoothie recipe is very inviting! By the way, it was a great idea to freeze the fruits instead of adding water. Another thing is, you can use skimmed milk to make it extra healthy. I love this recipe because you can whip it anytime you want! The ingredients are just a staple in the kitchen, nothing fancy. :)

  8. Losing weight in this manner can create health problems
    such as obesity and diabetes in mice. Ideal Paleo workouts include Cross Fit and Paleo.
    For the uninitiated, the paleo also known as the Caveman diet is a low carb diet may
    cause some side effects, including abdominal pain and nausea.
    In addition, AOL operates one of the finest selection and best suit
    their lifestyle and beliefs? And it seems everyone has an opinion on what triggers it: Is
    it fatigue?

  11. They behave like hormones in many ways and have been found to vastly
    improve circulation and promote Weekend Detoxification.
    You're releasing the toxins that are collecting in your body that are just waiting for more sugar and less vitamin D in your blood and thereby improve the functions of your liver. There are many medications on the market. Sometimes when I go shopping, instead of your internal organs, the kidneys. Fertilizers and insecticides and pesticides that are used in making green tea.
