5 Smoothie Recipes you need to try - Miss Foodie

Smoothies have come along way since the humble banana smoothie; blended with the almighty hand wand mixer.

I remember making a banana smoothie for my sister and I nearly everyday after school. In would go the banana, milk, way too much honey, and if we had any — a good dollop of ice-cream. A trick I learnt later in life was to add a comforting sprinkle of nutmeg to your chilled glass of goodness.

From the hand wand came the 900+Watt Food Processors. I started off with a Cuisinart Compact Blender which I LOVED and had for a couple of years. I tended to overfill it though and eventually I blew out the motor. My darling Mumsy-in-law gave me a NutraBullet-Pro for Christmas this year and so far so good.

I thought I would put a few of my trusted smoothie recipes together for you to enjoy.

If you have any award winning blends yourself, pop me a line – I would love to grow my smoothie collection.

Morning Machine
My Morning Machine smoothie recipe has been my pre work breakfast for 2 years. Not only is it extremely healthy, it fills me up. The hubby can’t stomach this one; he hates kale. So if you’re not a fan either you may find it a bit much; hence my honey suggestion.

Detox Me
Another SUPER healthy smoothie recipe - The Detox Me. It’s a bit thick and I admit I do like the combination in a juice version a little better. But this way you get all the nutrients and that’s the main thing.

Salted Caramel
On my recent trip to Yamba I fell in love with Lone Rock Wholefoods’ Salted Caramel Smoothie. I had withdrawals when I returned home and quickly recreated the smoothie recipe for myself.
