Sunshine and Smoothies

Today was an abnormally sunny day on the south coast of England, with just a tantalisingly subtle hint of spring in the air. In the winter months, I typically stick to warm drinks to stop myself from shivering, but today I decided to blitz up a healthy, refreshing smoothie inspired by the sunshine.

I like to create smoothies which aren’t entirely composed of fruit because they are less sugary and usually healthier than an all-fruit blend. However, if you prefer your smoothies sweeter, kiwi is a great addition to this recipe!

Ingredients:
  • 1 banana
  • A chunk of cucumber
  • A handful of spinach
  • A splash of coconut water

Does anyone else find that sunny weather puts them in a much more positive frame of mind? I’m always a lot happier when the sun is shining! If you have any favourite smoothie recipes, please feel free to share/link them in the comments – I’d love to try them out!
