Blackberry Jam and Cream Smoothie

20140604-051427 PM-62067620.jpg

Even though it is winter, I still need my frozen fruit meals. This reminds me of my childhood.
For the base:
Blend 1 cup of frozen blackberries
1 ripe banana
200 mls of filtered water

For the top:
Blend 1 ripe banana
1-2 frozen bananas
1 vanilla pod
1 tablespoon of cacao nibs

Pour blackberry jam into a suitable vessel and place a huge dollop of banana cream on top. ย Stick your spoon in and push your ice cream top down into your jam. Revisit your childhood ๐Ÿ˜€

Green Breakfast Smoothie

Green Breakfast Smoothie

I made this for my kids for their breakfast the other morning and surprisingly all 5 of them scoffed the lot. Usually I have at least 1 non-complier, so must of been a bit of a winner ๐Ÿ˜‰

Coconut water and chia gel (or just coconut water and suitable tablespoons of chia seeds for the amount of mouths)
Spirulina (I recommend Hawaiian Pacifica)
Baby Spinach
Decorate with a few berries

It is full of iron, calcium and protein. Much better than sugary cereals ๐Ÿ™‚
