Recipe Notes

When you're not quite hungry, but need a bit of energy to get you through to the next meal, this is an excellent choice.  Mix it up by using other fresh herbs such as basil or coriander.  Dependent on the mood, you may want to opt for a more spicy filling using fresh chilli + lemon and omit the balsamic ingredients.

Enjoy!

Berry Smoothie
No nonsense smoothie, making the most of the in-season cherries! I normally don't add a powder mixture to my smoothies as do not like to interfere with the natural flavours, however I had no leafy greens to hand, and the intense flavour or the berries overrode the powder taste.

  1. Carefully remove the pips from the cherries and add to your blender. You may want to use gloves as the juice can really get under your finger nails and look gross!
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. The consistency should be quite thick and deliciously creamy.. Like a dessert!
  3. Indulge and wait for your cells to become alive!
Recipe Notes

Be careful not to get too carried away with smoothies, and notice the serving size is relatively small.  Smoothies can be a good thing, but should not be consumed in replacement of a meal, nor an everyday occurrence unless you have specific dietary needs.  This is mainly because they can interfere with regulating your blood glucose levels with too much fructose and also process quickly into your bloodstream due to the carbohydrate level.  As a rule for any smoothie, add some good fats + protein to allow the nutrients to enter steadily into your body versus a rapid race.  It is also best to chew your smoothies, just like your food.
