Blue smoothie for post-Halloween or Guy Fawkes night!

Recovery smoothie

Recovery smoothie

Ingredients list:

  • Kefir
  • crushed ice
  • Blueberries/strawberry mix
  • Spirulina (½ teaspoon is plenty for one glass)
  • Honey

I mixed this drink for myself one morning on holiday and loved it – so here it is, simple and very refreshing.

Mix the ingredients in the ration that you like but I have listed them above by order of recommended quantity.

Kefir is a fermented goat or cow’s milk drink and is wonderful for your digestive system and Spirulina is a powder made of seaweed that can help your energy levels and is beneficial for all sorts of thyroid or fatigue problems.

Shake and enjoy chilled.

Avocado and kiwi frozen smoothie for radiant health

 

Just 3 ingredients and lots of ice...

Just 3 ingredients and lots of ice…

A cooling smoothie with an unusual savoury tang: The smooth avocado marries the tangy kiwi in a delicious if surprising combination.

Ingredients list:

  • avocado, 1
  • kiwi, 1 peeled
  • spirulina powder, 1 tsp (optional)
  • orange, 1 squeezed
  • ice cubes, handful

Blitz all of the above ingredients in your food processor ( mine is a Thermomix) and serve cold in an ice cream glass. I love it as a starter or anytime of day as a smoothie. It is also a great post work out recovery drink! Need to remember that next sunday as I attempt to run the Richmond running festival Half-marathon…

Be sure that, with or without spirulina, this sweet and savoury smoothie packs a big vitamin punch in a small size –  quantities above are per person.

You can source Spirulina powder in health shops. It is great for energy because it contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals as well as anti-oxydants. I can’t say I enjoy the taste of it of in small quantities in smoothies it does the job and provide even more green to your diet… The taste is fresh and clean so perfect to start the day feeling radiant with health and virtue!
