Superfood Super Smoothie

As my last smoothie recipe received so much positive feedback, I thought I would share another one. I won’t lie, the end result of this smoothie doesn't look as appetizing as the one before (Because lets face it, who wants to drink a brownish/purplish smoothie? Anyone? No? Thought not...) but I promise this is one tasty little concoction that will tantalize anyone's taste buds.

You will need:

A handful of porridge oats – Great to keep you full until lunch

Half an avocado – Full of good fats and potassium (not to mention it tastes amazing)!

A handful of frozen blueberries (You can use fresh blueberries but using frozen ones means you don't have to add ice and waste valuable space!) – Low on the GI scale and the God Father of Superfoods!

A tea spoon of Chia seeds - Great for fibre and Protein!

50ml of Orange juice – High in Vitamin C

The juice of half a lemon – Helps flush out toxins!

A tea spoon of honey - Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal…anti - you name it!

A handful of Kale – High in Iron and Vitamin K

Seeds of your choice (I used pumpkin and sunflower seeds along with pine nuts)

2 tea spoons of Goji Berries – Booster for your immune system and full of antioxidants

A handful of Spinach - High in Vitamin K and Iron

To ensure your smoothie is as smooooooooooth as possible, put the oats, seeds/nuts (including the chia seeds) and Goji berries in your blender first and blend them together to create a powder.

Add your orange juice and a dash of water and mix together with the powder to create a smooth base for your other ingredients.

Once that step is done, chuck the rest of your ingredients in and blend away!

I know, I know, it doesn't look that appetizing, but it will do you the world of good! You’ll be left with a wonderfully tasty, creamy Superfood Super Smoothie that is filling and packed full of goodness!

I personally love this recipe as the avocado is a great alternative to Banana, which adds that creaminess! It’s a lovely fresh drink and a great way to get more vegetables and other goodness in your diet!
