This is definitely a new weekly addition to my blog and it’s something I hope to keep up for quite a while.
I decided last week that I really need to eat healthier as I feel like I’ve gained so much weight lately and I want to change it before it gets too out of hand. So the first thing I wanted to change was what I eat in the morning for breakfast and lunch in the afternoon.
One thing I thought would be great to start having is smoothies, something I have always wanted to have but never had the time for it. However, my household recently got a Ninja blender and it is the fastest and best blender I have ever used. When I move out I’ll definitely be picking one up for my own home.
My only problem with smoothies is that I might not be able to make a hell of a lot due to allergies to certain (well most) fruits, which sucks. But I shall try my hardest to come up with some awesome recipes!
In the future I might even give some soup recipes a go.
So I thought I would give the smoothie making a go and my first recipe, which is blueberry and raspberry.
This smoothie is super easy to make and roughly contains about 200-300 calories, which is great. Perfect to make in the evening to have for breakfast or lunch on the go.
1 cup full of raspberries and blueberries (so half of each, or more of whichever you prefer).
2-3 tablespoons of low fat Greek yogurt. I used honey but you can use plain if you wish. You can also use low fat natural yoghurt too.
Half a cup of milk. I used semi-skimmed but you can use whatever you want.
A drizzle of honey for sweetness. This is totally up to you though.
And that’s it! I personally use frozen fruit as I find it lasts a lot longer than fresh fruit and it means I don’t need to add any ice cubes as it’s already cold. I don’t care if frozen fruit is bad for you etc, this is ideal for me and saves me a hell of a lot of money. Of course you can use fresh fruit for this recipe.
Will you be giving this recipe a go? Please let me know if you do in the comments! If you can think of any yummy smoothies you like, let me know the recipe and I may be able to give them a go!
Until next time, take care all!
