 A colourful start to your day.

We are back from holidays, schools have opened their doors and we cannot think of anything better for a fresh start to the day than smoothies: colourful, nutritious breakfast smoothies!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it doesn’t have to take long to prepare. Neither is eating healthy as difficult as many people think. Smoothies can provide a wholesome alternative and give you the energy boost you need to start your day. The best bit is that you can pack in a glass at least a few of your five a day and enjoy them in under 10 minutes. 

For our smoothies we use fresh fruit, rich Greek yoghurt and a spoonful or two of natural sweeteners. Honey is certainly one of our favourites. You can try our limited edition of Spring Blossom Raw honey or the dark amber colour,  Oak Tree Raw honeydew honey.

We equally love molasses, a spoonful can make a huge difference to the taste of your smoothie. You can choose from 4 different flavours and experiment with the sweet and sharp pomegranate molasses, our organic grape molasses or try out our new chocolatey carob molasses and velvety date molasses .

Greek yoghurt is without a doubt a go-to base for any smoothie.  If you want an alternative, you can enjoy your fruit blend with our organic kefir, produced at a small cooperative dairy with goat's milk from herds that graze in the mountainous Drama region of northern Greece.

We have five suggestions for you so you can put this blender to good use straight away:

 

Creamy Peach and Mango Smoothie with Date Molasses

A taste of summer in a glass: peach and mango make for the ultimate summer smoothie and you can still enjoy the fruit at the end of their season. We added Greek yoghurt and a generous tablespoon of date molasses.

 

Blueberry & Pomegranate smoothie with pomegranate molasses

PomegranadeBlueberrySmoothie_EugeniaM_lowres-IMG_0600This mix is rich in antioxidants and vitamins that will give a great boost to your immune system. We added pomegranate molasses to complement the fruit because we love this slightly tart flavour.

Berry Kefir

Have you tried Kefir? This nutrient dense milk is most well-known for its probiotic properties. We combined it with a classic forest fruit and loved the flavour.

Banana & carob molasses goodness

It’s no secret that bananas make any smoothie creamier and more flavoursome. We gave them the credit they deserve, blended in a few dates and gave them a chocolatey touch with carob molasses.

 

Super Green kefir smoothie

SpinachKefirSmoothie_EugeniaM_lowres-IMG_0612Green smoothies are the way to go if you wish to add a few greens in the mix and enjoy refreshing sips. We added some handfuls of spinach, kiwi, banana, a bit of avocado, lime juice and kefir. Feel free to play with different green leaf combination and top it of with a few fresh fruit or coconut flakes and chia seeds like we did for this one.
