Smoothie Recipes: Red, Purple and Green Smoothie

the latest smoothie is a mixture of red, purple and green ingredients, hence the inventive name. this is so jam packed with goodness it’s hard to believe. so sip back and enjoy ;) punderful!

Ingredients

1 plum
Handful of blueberries
1 kiwi unpeeled (you can peel it if you like)
Handful of spinach
Handful of mixed summer berries (strawberry, raspberry, cranberry)
Half a handful of pineapple
Half an apple
Half a lime squeezed
Splash of water
Sprinkle of seeds and oats

Step One:  Take the stone out of the plum and slice it into small sections (roughly the size of a satsuma segment).

Step Two: Slice up the kiwi (either taking off the skin or leaving the skin on, depending on how you like it), apple and pineapple.

Step Three: Grab the blueberries, mixed summer berries, spinach, kiwi, apple, plum and pineapple and put them in the blender with the water (if they don’t all fit at once, blend some first and then add the rest once there is room). Squeeze the lime juice into the blender and give it another quick blitz.

Step Four: Decant the smoothie into a glass and sprinkle on the oats and seeds.

Top tip: For a top notch Instagram picture, add slices of kiwi, plum and lime. For extra pizzazz add flowers and sprinkle oats on the counter and remember as soon as you’ve done so that you have to clean it up.

This is such a yummy smoothie and it’s packed full of goodness. Want to make this a smoothie on the go? Before decanting it into a sports (or designated smoothie) bottle, pour in some oats and seeds and blend them into the smoothie. This will make it thicker and a bit… well bitty, but it’s delicious and will fill you up for a busy day.
