Smoothie Friday!

On Wednesday me and Clément went out to buy Holly (our dog) some food and came back with a smoothie maker and waffle machine. Needless to say we got slightly distracted at our local electrical appliance store! Some people could say it was impulsive, but life is starting to feel a little more complete now the waffle machine is around.  The excitement of coming home with all these new kitchen gadgets was hard to contain, so not long before I plugged in the smoothie maker, that baby was being put into action! 

Here is the the recipe for my oh so scrumptious banana, pineapple and strawberry smoothie! If these pictures don't send those healthy vibes through your computer screen and make you want to make this, then I don't know what will ;)

You will need:

  • 2 bananas 
  • Handful or two of strawberries
  • Half a pineapple
  • Around 3/4 table spoons of natural yogurt 
  • Table spoon of Honey
  • And a splash of orange juice 

Prep all your delicious fruit by chopping everything into small chunks. I'd recommend not using the core of the pineapple as it doesn't blend too well in smoothie machine, and we don't want to ruin your smoothie after all that hard work chopping!

You can use any juice you have lying around if you wan't to, I just had this "le pur jus d'orange avec pulpe" in my frigo so I poured a little of that vitamin C goodness into the mix.

 Pop everything into the machine, on goes the lid and get blitzing! I used a pot of greek yogurt I had in the fridge with honey already in it, so if your feeling lazy like me that'll work fine.

ET VOILA! Quick, fruity smoothie that contains your five portions of fruit for the day! This makes about 4 glasses of smoothie so just pop it in the fridge for later when you feel a bit peckish but wan't something healthy :)

Let me know if you give this a whirl! And if you like these sort of posts, I thought I'd try branch out a little since beauty is all in our food too ;)
