His & Her Smoothies: My Easy Smoothie Recipe Base to Get You Started!

6 Apr - Smoothie2

I’m obsessed with smoothies! Not only do they make a great meal on the go (perfect if you’re constantly on the run like myself!) but they can also be a nutritious pick me up during the day. I’m always skeptical of those ready made ones from cafes/smoothie bars as they tend to contain tones of sugar and little raw ingredients.

For me, tasting good is always the first priority! I’ve become accustomed to this simple base that I use to start off all my smoothies, which also doubles up as a delicious banana honey number on its own. Depending on the size of your blender or sweetness preference, you might need to adjust the measurements to suit.

Smoothie Base (serves 1)

1/2 medium banana
1 tsp organic honey
3 ice cubes
300ml unsweetened almond milk (add a little more or less if you prefer a thicker or thinner consistency)

Here are some of my favourite combinations to add to my smoothie base above! But you can also add other fruits, oats, whey protein, acai powder and chia seeds. The possibilities are endless!

My top picks!

Papaya Raspberry Smoothie
1 cup papaya
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
+ smoothie base

Mixed Berry Smoothie
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
+ smoothie base

For my man!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
1 heap tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp peanut butter
+ smoothie base

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
