National Breakfast Week: Juices and Smoothies
We don’t all have the time, inclination or appetite to eat a big meal every morning before we start the day.
Juices and smoothes are a great alternative; they’re healthy, sweet and filling enough to get you going at the beginning of a busy day.
As National Breakfast Week comes to a close, today we’re sharing a few of our favourite juice and smoothie recipes on Silversurfers.
Beetroot, Grapefruit & Apple Juice
- 1 pack of vacuum packed natural cooked beetroot
- 2 apples
- 1 peeled grapefruit
What to do:
- Put your apples, grapefruit and beetroot into your juicer. Pour into glasses and serve.
Blueberry and Raspberry Smoothie
- 175g (6oz) raspberries
- 100g (4oz) blueberries
- 300ml store-bought juice or coconut water; cranberry, raspberry, apple and pomegranate all work well.
What to do
- Put ingredients into a blender and mix well for at least one minute. For extra sweetness, add a tablespoon of honey. The consistency will be light like a juice – if you want a thicker smoothie, try adding a banana.
Celery, pear & ginger juice
- 2 green apples
- 2 pears
- 4 sticks of celery
- 3cm fresh ginger
What to do:
- Chop the fruit and celery into chunks. Put everything through a juicer then chill in the fridge. Stir well before serving.
Spinach & mango smoothie
- A large handful of spinach
- 200g frozen mango
- One medium banana
- 250ml coconut water, water or apple juice
What to do:
- Add spinach, frozen mango, banana and coconut water to blender and blitz. If smoothie is too thick, add a little more water until you achieve your desired consistency.
