Happy New Year everyone. Hope you had a fab 2013 and here is raising a smoothie to an even better 2014.
Of course, children don’t know it is new year, so the 6.30 alarm clock of “mama, daddy I wake!” still went off, so I sent my poor OH, who complained that his head was feeling “a bit dry” off to deal with them.
But soon guilt started to kick in. I have a whole list of resolutions which I am definitely going to keep this year. One of them is to be nicer to OH (yeap), and the other is that we have to eat some seriously good healthy food to work off all our Christmas and New Year food excesses.
So I produced this smoothie for him.
And for the whole of January I will be treating you to some delicious healthy recipes that might just help you keep some of your eating resolutions. If you have any like me, that is.
Frozen berries of any sort work well here if you don’t have any fresh ones, as do those left over porridge oats you have in the fridge. I like this best with strawberries and OH likes it blackberries but see what works for you. And my yoghurt of choice for today’s breakfast smoothie is the rather creamy Total Greek yoghurt.
Well, I am off to go drink some more smoothies whilst we slowly fold away wrapping paper and start taking down the decorations. Happy New Year again and look forward to hanging out with you through 2014 and beyond.
Below are some other smoothie recipes you might like.
