Upping my Fruit Game - Smoothie Maker



I decided it was about time I focused on my health and eating more fruit! 
I have never been one for breakfast and hearing that it is the most important meal of the day over and over I felt it was time I tried something! So I figured a smoothie would be the best way for me to get lots of nutrients and most of my five a day in one drink! Without actually having to have a large breakfast at 7am Blurrrghhh.
So when I saw the breville blend active  for under £30 I thought I may as well give it a go. I have  used it for about three weeks every morning and found its giving me much more energy and a good way to start my day.


I've tried a few different recipes and found I can pack a lot more fruit into just one drink than I could if I ate it.
what you will need for my favourite smoothie-
- Handful of frozen or fresh blueberries
-Three table spoons of yogurt (natural or flavoured)
- Half a banana
- Handful of strawberries
- Handful of frozen mango
- Couple of grapes
- Handful of mixed frozen berries
- Splash of water or forest fruit juice

TA DA!

what is really good about this one is you can blend the ingredients in the cup you drink from so I usually make two the night before and George and I take them to work, or on a weekend I like to pour them into cute glass jars which makes them super instagramable! 






If you guys have any smoothie recipes I would love to hear them! :) I've heard you can add oats to make them more filling?
