Why Smoothies?            

Smoothies are a great way to get a power snack, or maybe even a light meal replacement if you’re in a rush. There are a huge variety of type of nutrition and taste you can pack into a smoothie. Here are some ideas:

  • Thirst Quencher: icy, water based fruit smoothie, such as frozen watermelon with acai
  • Pick-me up: energy packed with nutrients and slow release energy such as the Banana and Dulce de Leche smoothie in this blog post
  • Meal replacement: try yoghurt, banana, granola and milk when you’re in a rush at breakfast
  • Veggie Smoothie: great for packing in the vitamins, and not too sweet. Cooked vegetables can lose vitamins through the cooking process so raw vegetables are the very best for a smoothie. Try Spinach, Asparagus, Grapes & Kiwi
