Winter smoothie

Today is the darkest day of the year and it feels only natural to start the day with a vitamin filled smoothie. I try to pack in the fruit and vegetable through liquid form to ensure I get enough nutrients throughout the day, now that my time is limited with a little baby. Thus, smoothies are great additives to a diet that are quick and easy to make. Since we will be enjoying a delicious but heavy Christmas meal in just three days, a refreshing smoothie is the best way to start the day. My husband and I both love this combination of ingredients and the rich purple colour is appropriate for this festive season.

  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

I personally do not think it needs additional sweetening, but you can add a few drops of vanilla extract into the oatmilk for a sweeter effect. You have got to love the colour palette of this dish, it makes sunday mornings just right…
