The Twisted Smoothie


I don't know about you, but finding time for anything other than getting through each day, is pretty tough. Making the time to eat well would always end up at the bottom of the list. But I have found a solution that works for me - smoothies!

Over the last 4 or so months I have tried to have a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch, each day.  With the right ingredients added they can really boost your nutrition intake and keep you feeling full for hours.

Once I find a recipe I like I generally stick to it, changing the fruit depending on seasonal availability.

So below is my basic, but yummy go-to smoothie recipe.

SMOOTHIE TIPS

- Freeze your overripe bananas and avocados. They add great texture and help keep the smoothie cold. Dice them up and pop into a snap lock bag in your freezer.

- I use frozen free-flow spinach, easy and keeps the smoothie colder.

- Use coconut water in place of almond milk if preferred.

- Vanilla flavoured protein powder can also be used.

- Chia seeds can be added for more nutritional value - just make sure you rinse the glasses and blender immediately after use.

- Your blender needs plenty of power to really make a great textured smoothie.

NZ AVOCADOS

Dreamy, creamy, smooth avocados are a “can’t live without,” in our books.   

That’s why we offer two different varieties - Hass and Reed avocados - so we can extend our avocado eating season as long as possible!

Hass avocados are the most common commercial variety in New Zealand, and for good reason. They have a lovely, silky, creamy texture. Green and hard when unripe, they slowly turn a dark green/black colour and soften when they are ready to eat.

Reed avocados are among the largest of the avocado varieties. They have a smooth buttery avocado texture and taste. Reed avocados remain green, even when they are ripe. To check for ripeness gently press the stem and if it depresses, it’s ripe! Don’t leave it until the whole fruit feels soft - by then it’ll be overripe.
