Super quick and healthy smoothie recipe packed with banana, strawberries, blueberries and pomegranate for an energy boost in the morning.
Ever since Munch started school I am finding it harder and harder to get started in the morning, and I know it’s because I’m just not eating the right things (unless beige is a food group?!). As time isn’t a luxury I have, I find that I can go most of the day before I realise I’m surviving solely on coffee…not good! So it was time to re-evaluate, get some healthy food in me and kick start my energy levels and vitamin intake.
I promise not to turn into a health junkie, but I’ve really noticed a difference in my energy levels already from the smoothies and taking my Swisse Vitamins too. I can’t wait to see the long term results from this little 5 minute healthy smoothie session each morning.
I’ve been doing it for over a week and looking after myself is always bottom of the list, so if I can fit it in…it must be easy! I’m going to share a few of my favourites with you and my first one has to be my ultimate one, as it is jam packed with fruit that I wouldn’t normally eat.
Banana, Blueberry & Pomegranate Smoothie Recipe
Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Blitz Time: 1 minute
- 1 banana
- 250ml coconut milk (or juice)
- 6-8 strawberries
- 2 handfuls of blueberries
- 1 handful of pomegranate seeds
- Ice optional (or use frozen fruit above)
Erm….place everything in the blender (that’s pretty much it!) and blitz for no longer than a minute. Told you it was easy!
I’d mentioned that I wouldn’t normally eat these fruits (with the exception of banana) because on their own I find them quite tart, but together they work really well and it’s a chance for me to get a good variety of fruit all with different health properties and vitamins into my system, whilst looking pretty alive on the school run!
What would you put in your fruit packed smoothie? I’m new to this, so shout out in the comments if I’m missing any good combinations!
We were using a Nutri Bullet, part of Debenhams food preparation range.
