I recently shared a juicing infographic with you, which contained some handy tips for juicing as well as lots of facts. I have been experimenting with a range of juices, smoothies and milkshakes recently, using Riverford organic fruit. Riverford stock a range of fruit specifically for juicing that can be delivered directly to your door.
The recipe for homemade banana milkshake I shared recently was also made using Riverford fruit.
One of the other things I have been making are smoothies. The one below is a kiwi and banana smoothie which, despite sounding like an odd combination was really good.
Kiwis have lots of benefits including: improving immune function; improving digestion; offering UV protection and softening skin. Bananas protect against muscle cramps; help to overcome depression; aid weight loss and strengthen the nervous system, among other things.
Once again, using the Breville Blend Active I just whizzed up a banana, a kiwi fruit and then added a dash of fresh apple juice. This was good for that PM low when the sleep deprivation starts to kick in.
What’s your favourite smoothie?
