My favourite smoothie and shake recipes
Smoothies and shakes are a fantastic way of getting fruit and veggies into your body quickly and easily. If you’ve been reluctant to try a green smoothie because you’re worried about how the ‘green’ will taste, don’t worry!
Spinach is the best green vegetable to add to a smoothie, as it has a very mild flavour. You really only taste the fruit – trust me!
In this post I’m sharing my top 5 favourite smoothies and shakes. The ones I make most often that have become my ‘go-to’ recipes.
Don’t be afraid to play around with flavours and ingredients to suit your taste, and you’ll soon have your own shortlist of favourites.
1. EASIEST EVER GREEN SMOOTHIE
I call my favourite green smoothie the easiest ever green smoothie, because it really is! It’s a great one to start with if you’ve never tried a green smoothie before. The mango and raspberries make a delicious flavour combo.
