Fruit smoothie

IMG_5395
About an hour after I’ve had my jasmine tea in the morning,  I’m ready for breakfast, which almost every morning is a Nutribullet smoothie.
Usually I will start with a base of kale or other greens then add a little fruit or avocado, some coyo yoghurt, and top it up with almond milk and various ground things from mysterious containers. (Actually, they’re all labelled, so there’s no real mystery).
This morning though, I was distracted. No hemp seeds, no flax seed, no greens. Mainly berries. And that’s fine every now and then. It was much like a fruit ice-cream milkshake, and that’s a pretty good way to start any day.
Fortunately I have a few boxes of Bioglan superfood powders on the shelf. A tablespoon of the supergreens one went in. A quick fix. I can steam the greens later with some garlic, chilli and ginger and have them with lunch.

Ingredients for two

1 large or two small bananas
A large handful of frozen berries (I used a mix of raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants)
1tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter (amazing stuff- goes great with bananas)
1tbsp Bioglan supergreens powder, we got ours on Ocado (if you don’t have this, I would recommend it. Along with hemp powder, flax seed, chia seeds and all those things you can get in the health food shop and many supermarkets now)
1tsp raw cocoa nibs
1tsp turmeric (fresh preferably, but I only had extract and powdered on my shelf)
Almond milk, fill up to the line, otherwise enough for two glasses (unsweetened and preferably with a high almond content)

Method
Blend it all together until smooth. Couldn’t be simpler. If you don’t have a Nutribullet, a normal blender should do the job.
