Food - Brekkie Smoothies

A kick ass brekkie smoothie. Seriously, I can't think of any better way to start the morning. But that's just me... I love smoothies and while I could tell you all the good places around my area to buy them I'm not going to. I'm going to tell you all about the smoothies that I make because I think they are pretty amazing. They are quick, easyand best of all, they are cheap! You know, who wants to pay a whopping 6 dollars from a Boost Juice (or whatever) when you can make one that is equally fabulous at home...and I promise you, they are fab.

So, here's what I do:

1. Get my Thermomix all preped and ready to rock and roll (if you are wondering, 'what the f*** is a Thermomix', it's what I use for a blender. And what an amazing blender it is. It's so good that I'm going to dedicate one whole blog to talking about it. But more of that later. It's Smoothie time)

2. I put a handfull of ice cubes, one frozen banana (this is crucial, a frozen banana makes the texture of the smoothie much thicker and infinitely better), a couple of frozen raspberries, about 50ml of Orange Juice and 100ml of skim milk all into the Thermomix bowl. I turn the Thermomix up to full capaxity spin and BAM. We have a smoothie.

3. For the finishing touches, I sometimes add a teaspoon of honey for a little bit of extra sweetness. Yum.

Honestly, they are incredible and super healthy. No bad stuff, it's all good. So good that I'm off to make one right now.

Do you make any amazing smoothies?
If you do, please tell me about them!

*Kick Ass - note the reference to Tash's previous blog! Yes, I did that on purpose!
