Kiwi and banana smoothie

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?

Gumbo is my slow cooker rice in my rice cooker. In my hose it is a citrus juicer
