There's something special about a mixed berry smoothie, it's pretty perfect for any weather too.
Trust me, I have a smoothie concoction for every fruit out there, but this berry mix is possibly my favourite.
- Chia seeds
- Coconut flakes
- Peanut butter
- Greek yoghurt / milk
- Ice blocks
Yes, your day to day food blog will tell you x amount per ingredient but I believe that quantities for smoothie making vary depending on what texture you're looking for and how much smoothie you'd like. Plus, if there's too much, you can also put it in a container and in the fridge for later.
A tip though - the more banana, yoghurt/milk and peanut butter you add the thicker your smoothie will be. Start off with one banana, 3 tablespoons of greek yogurt/ half a cup of milk and a tablespoon of peanut butter, after blending you can then decide if you'd like to add anymore.
For a good textured smoothie:
- Put ice blocks and berries in the blender first, blend on high until the ice blocks have broken down into shavings.
- Add banana, yoghurt/milk and peanut butter, blend on high until your smoothie looks like smoothie.
- Add your chia seeds and coconut flakes and do one quick blitz with your blender until all ingredients are mixed.
Relish the smoothie you just made and if you're lucky, you'll have some for later too.
