DID's Ultimate Fast & Easy Smoothie Recipes ()

Looking for a way to switch up breakfasts and snacks during lockdown? Eating from home is great, you save money, you can plan your meals and it's usually healthier. However, sometimes it can get a little boring having the same dishes every day. So, we have a few tasty recipes which can be thrown together in just a few minutes. Perfect if you are in the roll-out of bed and over to your desk phase! To create your perfect smoothie, just add all your ingredients to your blender and blitz until you get the desired consistency. Simple and tasty!

Top Tips

  • Use ice instead of water if you like thick smoothies. It also perfect for making breakfast smoothie bowls. You can also use frozen fruit to give a nice thick texture. Frozen fruit is also cheaper to purchase, and you can always have a bag in the freezer for when the smoothie cravings hit.
  • Buy some fresh ginger and grate or finely dice it. Then store it in the fridge. It's great for adding flavour to smoothies, ice-cream and porridge.
  • Frozen spinach is cheap, lasts longer than fresh and is the perfect way of adding nutrients to your smoothies. Fresh spinach is perfect for omelettes and stir-fries, but we are in favour of frozen when it comes to smoothie making.
