Fruity Sunday Smoothie

I feel like I’ve talked about my smoothie blender I got for Christmas a lot on here but I just wanted it very badly and I’ve gotten so much use out of it already. So far I’ve only tried different recipes involving fruits because to be honest I haven’t been brave enough to try one of those really healthy green ones that includes veggies as well. Not that I don’t like veggies. I do. At least some I do but the idea of mixing spinach, lettuce and celery with banana and apples honestly isn’t the most appealing to me but I’ve never tried it, so I can’t judge obviously. My mom and I made a deal that next time I’m home we’re going to test out one of those detox smoothies. We’ll see how that goes and I promise to report back on that.

So for today’s post I want to share a little smoothie recipe with you guys that I came across by just randomly putting together stuff we still had in our kitchen. It’s super easy to do and very tasty! I love how fruity it is and I think this would be a great refreshment once summer rolls around. All you need is for ingredients.

 frozen raspberries

frozen blueberries

1 pomegranate

oranges

As for the amount it really depends on how much you want to make. I usually go for 2 glasses, so I’ll take a handful or raspberries and a handful of blueberries out of the freezer and put them in my blender. I usually wait until they’ve defrost a bit because otherwise the consistency of the smoothie will be way too think otherwise and it’ll much more resemble ice cream rather than a drink. Once the berries have defrosted a bit I’ll add the juice of one pomegranate and the oranges. Blend blend blend…… and you’re done. Like I said it’s very easy and it’s so fruity and refreshing.

I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed my short little Sunday post!

Berries & Banana Breakfast Smoothie

One thing I love about being home is that my mom always makes sure we have a bowl full of yummy and healthy fruits in the kitchen. I’m a big lover of fruits but whenever I’m at University I don’t buy too much of it because fresh fruits are freaking expensive and I don’t want to spend crazy amounts of money on fruits that eventually go bad because I won’t have time to eat it all.

So today I woke up and I was thinking ‘ I haven’t had a smoothie for breakfast in ages’, so I decided to go make one. Though I love most breakfast foods I’m not really a big breakfast person because usually I’m on a rush in the morning and when I have to get up really early I’m not even hungry, so smoothies are a good solution for me at times.

This one is one of my favourites because it contains some of my favorite fruits and a little bit of cereal.

This is what you need:

200ml/ 6.7 oz of milk

a hand full of mixed frozen berries ( I used raspberries and blackberries)

one banana

a handful of your favorite cereal

3 tablespoons of plain yoghurt

I know these measurements aren’t all that great but I don’t have a real recipe. I just sort of throw in a bit of everything and blend it all up.

Add it all together and then blend until done. You don’t have to use frozen berries but if you do it’s really cold and refreshing.

It’s so easy and so yummy!

Happy midweek!
