Are you keen to try some new simple smoothie recipes?
As we hurtle through spring and head towards summer, we’re starting to change our eating habits in line with seasonal produce and warmer weather. We’ve ditched the winter stews in favour of salads, and are swapping our morning porridge for delicious smoothies.
So, this week, we’re sharing our favourite simple smoothie recipes to help inspire you to create a variety of flavours that will give you a little boost this summer:
Kickstart Your Mornings with a Zingy Ginger Smoothie
Ginger offers a host of health benefits. It can strengthen your immune system, support your digestive system, reduce pain and inflammation, and much more.
Its fiery flavour will certainly help to kickstart your morning; why not whizz up this delicious tropical concoction? The combination of pineapple and ginger will give your body a boost and set you up for a great day.

This delicious green smoothie is packed full of nothing but goodness. The nutritious ingredients include bananas, spinach and flaxseeds, helping to enrich your body with a host of vitamins.
The banana gives it a naturally sweet flavour, meaning it’s appetising enough to share with the whole family. You can choose to add a spoonful of natural maca powder, too, for an extra boost of energy.
Mix it Up With a Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are a fun twist on the classic smoothie. This recipe uses avocado to thicken it, but you can also use oats to help give it some substance.
This simple smoothie bowl recipe is loaded with nutrients, and you can adapt to suit your preferences. Simply pour the thicker smoothie into a bowl to enjoy, rather than a cup. It’s a delicious way to start the day, and you can top it with nuts, seeds, dark chocolate shavings or berries to give it some extra texture.
