Huggermugger or fine tuned, drink up!

Just a quickie, I have been asked for some smoothie recipes.

I don’t follow recipes for smoothies and never think of giving them to anyone because for me I just throw in whatever I have. I am happy to share some below, I hope you enjoy them but don’t be restricted by them.

This is the basic formula: I use a base of water, juice (I always make extra when I make a green juice for the following days smoothie), or kefir then I add the main fruit. I like bananas as they make it silky and are usually a good price. If you see lots of very ripe bananas going cheap buy them, peel them, chop them and freeze them. Perfect smoothie material, no need to defrost.

Add another fruit if you want it such as seasonal kiwis, berries or apples or you could use frozen fruit or exotic fruit such as pinapple, papaya or mago, this depends on your taste and budget.

Then put your greens in. I use about 50/50 fruit to greens. The more you have green smoothies the more green you will be able to use and enjoy. Build it up! If you see a glut of curly Kale and have a juicer that can juice leaves (or if you grow it and the season is soon over) juice lots and freeze in cubes for use in smoothies.

After that add any of the PIMP IT ingredients you will find beneath the recipes or add any other super food you like or maybe you need it slightly sweeter so add a drop of honey, agave, maple syrup or a pitted date.

To fine tune it try a pinch of pink himalayan salt, a squirt of lemon juice, maybe a hint of vanilla.

Mmmmmmmm

Any nut milk
Half and half water (or any of above) with milk kefir or live yogurt

Add one or more of the following to any smoothie:

1 tsp pollen
1 tsp spirullina
