This delicious smoothie is great to start any day and very easy to make. Keeping a freezer drawer of chopped fruit ready for smoothies makes them quicker and easier to throw together, and adding essential oil gives them an added spark of flavour and goodness. I buy my frozen fruit from Sainsbury, who have a whole array of different fruit. I also grab pieces that haven’t been eaten in time from the fruit bowl, chop and freeze on trays then transfer into bags. Lemons & limes can be frozen whole (including the skin) then grated straight from the freezer into your smoothie.
To make the smoothie you’ll need:
This recipe makes an ideal amount to put in to a Nutribullet. Simply put all the ingredients in the blender for 30 seconds then add the essential oils & blend briefly again. Enjoy!
Adding flax seeds or hemp seeds to a smoothie will give you an extra boost of fibre and keep you feeling fuller for longer. You can also add a scoop of protein powder to keep that fuller feeling even longer. I use doTERRA V Shake as my protein base which is a great protein alternative if you are intolerant to dairy or vegan.
