Smooth(ie) Operator

So lately I've been finding myself leaning towards healthier food choices. I don't know if it's cause of the fact that some of my clothes no longer fit sudden change in weather or the different recipes I've been reading on websites but I've decided to start eating healthier and smarter food.

In line with this, I've done some research and found out that "Breakfast Smoothies" are actually very good for you. Being a lazy chewer in the mornings (yes, there's such a thing), the sound of something quick, easy, and drinkable through a straw, peaked my interest. I decided to start loading up on fruits and veg at home and with a few tweaks to some Jamie Oliver recipes, I've managed to make two kinds of smoothies that I absolutely love and am obsessing over.

Please take note that I am not a dietician nor a nutritionist. I just like to experiment in the kitchen and learn as I go when it comes to food and eating healthy. So here are two smoothie recipes that you may have already seen on my Instagram. Just dump all the ingredients into a blender and you're good to go! Let me know if you guys try them :)

Avocado Addiction


1 avocado
1 frozen banana
1 handful of uncooked rolled oats (steel cut is good too)
Splash of almond milk (any milk is fine)
Pinch of brown sugar
1 handful of Spinach
1/2 lime juice

Perfect Pick Me Up


1 frozen banana
1 handful of uncooked rolled oats
1 apple
3 tablespoons of non fat yogurt
Splash of almond milk
1 handful of raspberries/blueberries/strawberries

Don't let these smoothies fool you, they're not only packed with loads of vitamins from the fruit and veg, but also keep you nice and full because of the oats. That's the part that makes this more of a full on breakfast- the oats release energy all throughout the morning, keeping you fuller for longer and without that pesky sugar crash.

You don't have to use frozen banana, but I find that when the fruit is frozen, you no longer need any ice cubes- making it a smoothie made purely with fruits and milk. :)

I'm still trying to tweak up a green juice recipe. Once I get it exactly how I like it I'll be sure to share it on the blog. This one is going to be more veggies than fruits so it's very exciting as well!
