PEANUT BUTTER MOO

Smoothies aren’t just for adults! Blend up any of the above for the little people in your life, or try this one, which is sure to become a healthy favourite for the whole family.

Combine a cup of milk (of your choice), with a few ice cubes, a banana and some peanut butter in a blender and whizz until smooth. 

 

It’s strawberry season!

Try these two to incorporate this ‘taste of summer’ ingredient...

GREEN STRAWBERRY -KIWI LEMONADE

1 kiwifruit (peeled)
3⁄4 cup of frozen or fresh strawberries 1⁄4 cup of pineapple
1⁄2 lemon (peeled and seeds removed) 2 handfuls of spinach
Cup of water or coconut water

One kiwifruit contains 95% of your daily dose of vitamin C and is packed full of antioxidants to neutralise free radicals and keep in ammation at bay.

STRAWBERRY CREAM

1 frozen banana (ripe and peeled)
1 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries 1⁄2 avocado (ripe, peeled and stone removed)
1 1⁄2 cups of unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp of vanilla extract and a pitted medjool date, to sweeten

Medjool dates are a great natural sweetener, loaded with both soluble and insoluble fibre and a range of minerals, including iron, potassium, zinc and B vitamins.
