I miss smoothies and smoothie bowls in the colder months. Opting for something more comforting like baked oats or pancakes/waffles if time allows. But the other day I was craving one, and a friend of mine gave me an awesome idea, a hot smoothie bowl. Think hot chocolate, but with more goodness and flavour, think a peppermint hot chocolate smoothie bowl. Read more
Since moving into the new house, I feel I have been scrabbling at life and trying to fit everything in, whilst still trying to unpack, re-decorate and find our feet with this new life (albeit in the same town, but very different surroundings). I am more tired than I have been in a long while, and a little overwhelmed with it all. Trying to find a new routine whilst trying to do something different every day to keep my brain happy. I get a little frazzled when I’m busy. Some people thrive off it, but not me, I need to keep a few days or evenings free just to calm and re-sync myself.
Trying to make small routines every day keep me sorted. Little things like my 11 o’clock banana at my desk, 2pm mug of green tea or my regular 10pm bedtime. The newest routine which has started every day in our new home is smoothie making in the morning, together. We get up, grab breakfast and then decide on a smoothie to make and take with us into our offices. Do something different every day for sure, to keep life interesting, but daily smoothies? Keep them in your routine of repetition.
Especially this cucumber peach smoothie, it’s totally rocking my world right now.
This cucumber peach smoothie is a favourite of mine at the moment. It’s oh so easy and full of good vibes. I throw everything in my Froothie Optimum G2.1 , 30 seconds blending and there ya go. Great for busy mornings when you need something quick. Since moving and now having access to a constant electricity source, we have used the Optimum G2.1 every day. We’ve made dips, soups, smoothies and even sorbets!
This smoothie is:
- loaded with vitamins
- flushes out toxins
- contains calcium and zinc
- a source of fibre
- vegan and gluten free
- ½ cucumber (peeled)
- 2 donut peaches (de-stoned)
- 2 large strawberries
- ½ cup / 125ml dairy free yoghurt
- 1 cup / 250ml almond milk
- ½ cup / 125ml coconut water (or filtered water)
- Add everything into your Optimum G2.1 (or regular blender)
- Blitz for 30 seconds - 1 minute
- Pour into glass and enjoy.
