zero waste smoothiesYou can’t beat a smoothie for getting your day off to a great start.

I love them because you can use up fruit you might otherwise throw away, you can a smoothie for pennies and they are a healthy and satisfying breakfast for people who can’t face a big meal.

Oh, and they’re a great way to get a couple of the five a day down people who resist 😉

And they’re really simple to do. All you need is a good blender, a good imagination and a willingness to experiment.

You can make them thick so they need eating with a spoon ( my penchant) or thinner so they can be devoured on the go.

Here are some of our favorites here at zero waste towers:

The “Mrs Green’s personal favourite” one

1 apple
1/2 avocado
15 each raspberries, blueberries, cherries
milk of your choice

smoothies - reduce- food - waste

 

The ‘where have the cherries gone’ edition

1/2 avocado
1 apple
15 raspberries
15 blueberries
250 mls soya milk

It’s creamy, satisfying and bursting with flavour

The zabadee edition

1/2 avocado
250 mls soya milk
25 blackcurrants
12 raspberries
10 cherries

This one is extremely zingy and tart and the blackcurrants tend to separate the milk a bit, so only make if you’re a hardened smoothie drinker with taste buds that don’t need a sweet fix. But hey, look at the colour – what’s not to love?

The simple edition

1 cup milk
1 brown banana

Little Miss Green has this most mornings for breakfast before school. She can drink it down between doing the all important hair and make up 😉

The Use it up! one

I made this the other day when I found half a dozen frozen strawberries in the freezer. It couldn’t be simpler, but you need a smoothie maker that can crush ice for this one; otherwise use fresh strawberries.

1 cup milk
1 banana
handful frozen strawberries

straberry banana smoothie

The apple’s going brown one

1 apple
1 banana
milk

Blitz and enjoy! This one looks a bit pink; I’ve either posted up the wrong image or the apple peel has given a pink hue to the smoothie.
