I am all for the concept of fresh juices and smoothies as they are not only really refreshing and help to fill you up but also the benefit of drinking your fruit and veg makes it much easier to consume a larger portion of food and get the nutrients you need throughout the day. I thought I would share my favourite concoction of the moment which I like to call my Raspberry Refresher. Not only do I love making my own fresh fruit smoothies but my family are also very passionate about growing a lot of our own fruit and veg, so beforehand I head outside to pick the fruit fresh off the vines.
To make my raspberry refresher pop into a blender:
1 cup of raspberries
1.5 cups of diced watermelon
200-250ml of apple juice
2-3 tbs of Greek yogurt (optional)
Of course you can mix and match the ingredients as you please and what is available to you. I also love to switch the apple juice and greek yogurt for some lemonade when I'm wanting a sweeter (and a little more unhealthy) treat.
Please let me know your favourite smoothie mixes as I am very interested to experiment and try out some more fruit and veg combinations!
