Berry Smoothie Bowls

Berry Smoothie Bowls | Add A Little

Who doesn’t love a delicious smoothie to start the day? I find it such a perfect breakfast as it’s so easy to put a good chunk of your 5-a-day into your morning and it makes you feel amazing!

I love adding oats to my smoothie as I find it makes them so much more filling as I tend to get hungry an hour after having just a plain smoothie. They also make the smoothie super creamy and rich as an added bonus!

I’ve chosen to serve it in a bowl here as I think it’s so fun to put toppings on and make it look beautiful, but if it’s just an average morning I’ll just put it in a bottle good to go.

This smoothie bowl is such an easy and fun breakfast. Feel free to change up the fruits to make a different flavour as this recipe serves as a guideline. I like adding some greens, although the colour isn’t as appealing as it goes slightly brown! Adding oats and nut butter makes the smoothie much more filling so if your looking to have it as a meal, I would recommend adding these.

1 ripe banana (frozen if possible)
1 cup blueberries (strawberries also work well here)
Handful of oats
1-1.5 cups milk (I use almond or oat)
Optional: superfoods such as chia/ flaxseeds, nut butter, spinach/kale
Toppings: shredded coconut, banana, superfoods, granola or muesli

If using, blend the oats into a fine powder.

Add the banana, blueberries, 1 cup of milk and any optional ingredients.

Blend until smooth. If it’s too thick, add more milk or water until the perfect consistency.

Serve immediately or leave in the fridge until ready to serve.

GUYS.

I’m beyond excited.

It’s finally come.

Green Smoothie | Add A Little

My nutribullet arrived!! I’ve wanted one for so so so long and then I won one in a competition yada yada yada but it’s finally here – seems like Christmas came early!

I was slightly overwhelmed as to what to make first; vegan mac ‘n’ cheese, baba ganoush, hummus, vegan pesto, creamy tomato soup – the possibilities are endless!

In the end I settled for a green smoothie!

I’ve got to say: I’m a massive green smoothie lover, however I’m quite specific that I don’t like it to be full of fruit, I like it to be about 60:40 on the veg to fruit ratio.

This delicious smoothie is a perfect afternoon pick-me-up as well as a portable breakfast: it would be great to add in a handful of oats or some chia seeds in here to keep you fuller for longer!

2 handfuls of kale
1/2 banana, frozen
1/4 avocado
Squeeze of lemon
Knob of ginger
water of almond milk, adding until desired consistency

optional: mint, dates or stevia to sweeten

Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.

Serve straight away, adding ice cubes if preffered.

Summer Fruit Mint Tea

Summer Fruit Mint Tea | Add A Little

I made a drinks recipe yay! I haven’t made one yet on Add A Little and thought you would enjoy this refreshing, minty, slightly fruity drink that’s perfect for summer! And I know it’s nearly the end of summer (nooo) but lets just pretend it’s still hot and sunny and we can have picnics.

I also decided to give an outdoor shoot a little go, which was super fun! What do you think of the shots? I’m really happy with the way they turned out so I’ll definitely try different sceneries more often! (Just ignore the fact that it was fuh-reezing outside and my fingers nearly fell off!)

Summer Fruit Mint Tea vegan, gluten free, dairy free

A delicious summer drink that is refreshing on a hot, summers day.
Feel free to add any fruits of your choice and this is delicious served warm if you add a slice of orange and some fresh mint leaves too.

2 teabags of good quality mint tea
500ml cool water (you can use boiling water if you want to speed up the process but I think long steeping gives it a more crisp, minty flavour)
Fruits of your choice: raspberries, frozen grapes, plums, nectarines

optional: sweetner such as agave or stevia

Steep the teabags in the cool water for about half and hour.

Chill in the fridge and serve cold with fruits.
Use frozen grapes instead of ice cubes so the flavour doesn’t go!
