Healthy Smoothie Recipes

I've been absolutely loving making smoothies for the past few weeks, especially as it's a super tasty way of getting your recommended daily fruit intake and is a healthy alternative to that can of coke or packet of crisps that you'll snack on, as I find them really filling too..

Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie -

This is my absolute favourite! I chop up 2 small bananas, a desert spoonful of peanut butter and a glass of skimmed milk, whack it all in the blender and within 30 seconds, you've made yourself a very tasty and rather healthy smoothie. I use organic wholemeal peanut butter because it doesn't have nearly as much sugar as the normal version, and if you have some upcoming exams, essays or assignments, peanut butter is a great thing to have as it's proven to be really good when you're trying to study - what a great excuse!

Banana and Blueberry Smoothie -

This is extremely healthy and is slightly more sour than the banana and peanut butter smoothie. I, again, chop up 2 small bananas, half a packet of blueberries and a glass of skimmed milk, put it in the blender etc. I left this in slightly longer as I wanted the blueberry seeds to be properly blended and this is the perfect smoothie to make after you've worked out at this gym. I'm always so hungry when I've worked off, and probably just put all of the weight back on that I'll have burnt off so this healthy alternative to a cuppa and some biscuits is working for me an absolute treat!

I'm going to the market again this weekend so I'm hoping to get some different fruit to try out, I really want to get ingredients for the green juice! If you have any recipes/suggestions, please them in the comments below!
