Gluten and Dairy Free Creamy Orange & Mango Smoothie

Hello everyone

I spent a few hours going through the recipes that I needed to share on the website – this one falls into the category of being typed up but missing a photograph.  I try to be organised but I have recipes and photos all over the place – things written on spare pieces of paper in a folder, some in a notebook and some typed up on my computer.  I also have a  mix on the computer of recipes typed up with no photographs and edited photographs with no recipes. I’m planning on spending the next few weeks sorting through everything rather than keeping working on new things.

Today’s recipe is for this simple but delicious smoothie – very creamy from the banana and dairy free natural yoghurt.  Smoothies came to popularity in California beaches in the mid 1960s and were traditionally made from ice, orange juice and strawberries.  They replaced milkshakes, flavoured with fruit syrups, in popularity due to the invention and mass marketing of the blender.  It wasn’t until years later that smoothie varieties expanded to include dairy, vegetables and a wide variety of fruit.

Enjoy!

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!
