  • Lemon and Kiwifruit Drink

    Lemon and Kiwifruit Drink

    Oh my! This has to be my favourite fruit and veg drink of the month!  Not sure whether to call it a smoothie or a juice though.  It contains all the pulp so technically I guess I should call it a smoothie but it’s a lot thinner than my usual drinks so calling it a…

  • Beetroot and Lime Smoothie

    Beetroot and Lime Smoothie

    Immune Booster. Love the taste of zesty ginger and the intense flavour of lime? They add an interesting depth when combined with beetroot, carrot, apple and celery in this Beetroot and Lime Smoothie.

  • Dragon Fruit Green Juice

    Dragon Fruit Green Juice

    I couldn’t resist buying a dragon fruit at the local greengrocers yesterday.  Its vibrant pink beckoned me!

  • Coconut Chia Smoothie

    Coconut Chia Smoothie

    A quick word of warning, you might need a spoon for this coconut chia smoothie!  The chia-seeds when added to liquid tend to form a jelly-like consistency, which is great if you like your smoothies nice and thick but not so great if you are drinking on the run. As with all my smoothies, just play…

  • Purple Carrot Juice

    Purple Carrot Juice

    You’ll be forgiven for thinking that purple carrots are a new commodity. In fact they have been around for thousands of years and date back to the origins of the orange carrot that we know so well.
