Nuts and seeds (e.g. chia seeds, almonds, flaxseeds, pepitas)

Fresh fruit (e.g. berries, banana, mango)

Nut butter (e.g. peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter)

Buckinis

Muesli

Top smoothie with desired toppings.

Top Tips:

I often get asked how to get a think smoothie consistency. My top tips are:

  • Use frozen fruit - this will thicken the consistency and make your smoothie bowl refreshing.

  • Don't go heavy handed with the milk/liquid - too much milk/liquid will make your smoothie a runny consistency.

  • Make sure you add yoghurt - this will thicken the consistency and is great for your gut health.

  • Add a spoon of raw rolled oats - this adds thickness to the smoothie as well as a boost of fibre.
