It has been a little while since I last posted (sorry!), but I have been busy over the last couple of weeks studying for university exams (3 exams in the space of 2 days - not again please!). Today I thought I would post a couple of smoothie recipes that are delicious and a little bit healthy!

The first smoothie is a healthy Spinach and Avocado


2 tablespoons chopped avocado
2 cups spinach leaves
170g of plain greek yoghurt
Roughly around 15 green or red grapes
1 ripe pear, chopped
1 or 2 tablespoons of lime juice

To serve the smoothie, I just used a washed pasta sauce jar - which is the perfect size for smoothies and cocktails - and used a thick straw from IKEA.

Recipe inspired from Sweet Spinach Smoothie

The second smoothie is a Mixed Berry (makes me think of the All Berry Bang smoothie from Boost Juice!)


2 tablespoons of mixed berries (mine were frozen)
3 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt (for extra berry flavour you could substitute this for a mixed berry yogurt)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
A splash of pomegranate juice

Again, I served this smoothie in a washed pasta sauce jar and used the IKEA straw. 

The blender I currently have is an older Bellini model that I purchased from Target a few years ago. This works ok, but isn't good at blending sometimes. The blades are small and don't work the ingredients around too well, as most times you will still have chunks of unblended fruit or ice when you serve. 

I'd love to know your favourite smoothie recipes, and if you try making these two let me know how it went! :)


  1. I looove smoothies, especially doing them myself! Will love to try the second recipe <3
