Smoothie Central

A couple of my favourite smoothie recipes:

Mango Chilli Smoothie

A crazy concoction but incredibly tasty: this cool, slightly sweet, fresh tasting with just a hint of chilli heat. The ingredients list might look like a dog’s dinner but trust me, it’s the cat’s pyjamas.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ripe mango
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 1 ripe medium pear
  • 1 large handful fresh spinach
  • 1/2 chunk fresh ginger
  • 1 fresh bird’s eye chilli
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • water as desired

Green Goodness Smoothie

This is my favorite breakfast at the moment. Simple, healthful and delicious. I make mine extra thick so it’s basically ice cream. Yum.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 ripe pear
  • Small chunk of fresh ginger, peeled
  • Handful spinach or other dark leafy greens
  • Small handful raisins or 2-3 prunes
  • 3/4 – 1cup soy or regular milk
  • 3/4tsp ground cinnamon

 

Not least my nearly-award-winning Un-beet-able Breakfast Smoothie
