Blueberry Strawberry and Banana Smoothie


I am so in love with smoothies right now.  10am is smoothie time.  This one has become an absolute favourite and with strawberries in season right now, and blueberries becoming cheaper (or you can use frozen), this is just delicious.

1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 medium very ripe banana
200ml coconut water
few fresh mint leaves

Pop it all in your smoothie mixer (I have a George Forman one) and blitz for a few seconds.  This is so beautiful and doesn't need any sweetener.  Feel free to add a little drizzle of pure maple syrup or a spoonful of natural greek yogurt if you like.  The great thing with smoothies is that you pretty much make them up as you go along!

Welcome back to.... me!

Hooray - back after far too long!  Time to get healthy, yes lots of baking and cooking, but with options that are better for you!  Use foods in season to save money, create meals and baking that you know exactly what is in them and you know they are good for you and your family.  That's the plan!
