Gluten and Dairy Free Carrot, Orange & Ginger Smoothie

Hello

I’m sticking with the orange themed colour of Halloween for this post.  Carrot isn’t something that I would of thought of to put in a  smoothie but I had a carrot smoothie when I was out and loved it.  I’ve paired this with some fresh ginger and orange for the perfect start to the day.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple, Mango & Basil Smoothie

Hello

I’ve started to take a smoothie to work everyday for my mid morning snack in an attempt to cut down on the amount of cakes and sweet treats I tend to find myself eating when I’m at my desk.

I’ve been experimenting with new flavour combinations so I’ll share a few of my favourites with you over the coming months.

Enjoy!
