Strawberry breakfast smoothie

Thermomix Strawberry SmoothieThere’s nothing artificial in this little baby. Sweet strawberries, banana, oats, milk and the goodness of flax meal and chia seeds to get your day off to a great start.

Ingredients:

  • 300g of fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana (if you don’t have either fruit in frozen form, add a bit of ice to the mix)
  • 230g of water
  • 230g of milk (I used cashew milk)
  • 40g of oats
  • Teaspoon of flax meal
  • Teaspoon of coconut nectar or honey (optional)
  • Teaspoon of chia seeds to sprinkle on top

Method:

  • Throw everything into the Thermie bowl (except chia seeds).
  • Blend 1 min/speed 9.
  • Sprinkle chia seeds on top.

My 1 year old drank his portion and was fighting me for mine!

Green smoothies

Green smoothie ingredientsGreen smoothies are a super easy way to get some greens into me and my little boy (with a helping hand from my Thermie!)

One of my favourite combinations at the moment is:

Berry creamy choc delight

  • Bunch of kale (stems removed)
  • Handful of lettuce leaves
  • 2 handfuls of frozen berries (e.g. blueberries or mixed berries – I buy the Omaha ones from Woolworths, or Frozberries from health shops)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder
  • Cup of coconut water (or more water if you like it thinner)

Blend on speed 9 for about a minute. Pour into glass and sprinkle with chia seeds. Creamy, chocolatey, berry goodness! So filling too.

Simply green smoothie

This is a really basic recipe but it’s very tasty! You could also use it as a base for experimentation.

  • Bunch of kale (stems removed) or spinach
  • 1 pear
  • 1 banana
  • 400-800ml of water

Blend on speed 9 for about a minute. Pour into glass and enjoy!

I will add more recipes as I get to them 🙂
