Smoothie and yogurt

The smoothie recipe, a bit late

Posted on June 30, 2020 at 18:32

I told you a few posts ago that my next post would contain a smoothie recipe. I forgot about that, in my excitement about getting healthy, but remembered it now. So here it is, the recipe for a smoothie I drink ever so often:

You need:

  • 3 deciliter of frozen, mixed berries (I use a mix of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
  • 1 banana
  • 0,5 deciliter light yogurt (I use the non-flavoured one)
  • 1-2 deciliters of cold water (depending on how thick you want it)
  • A blender that can handle frozen berries

How to:

  1. Start by putting everything in the blender. If you’re not sure of which consistency you want, start with the lower amount of water, you can always add in more after.
  2. Blend for about 45 seconds, if the berries won’t mix try to pulsate the blending a bit.
  3. Add more water if too thick.
  4. Enjoy!

I have even made it even easier for me, since that is my philosophy. Instead of having to bring out three bags of berries and peel a banana and mix in, I have pre-packaged a mixture of all the berries and the banana, cut up in pieces, in bags and boxes that are portion-sized, and put in the freezer. That way, I just need to take one portion out of the freezer, put in the blender and add liquids. Easy peasy!

Fruit bowl

A bowl of awesome

Tonight’s dessert wasn’t sorbet, it was something if possible even more fruity – a fruit salad! I made it myself and it consisted of about 7 strawberries, one banana and an orange. As I’ve said before, healthy doesn’t need to mean boring.

Some people are against fruit. They say it’s too much sugar, but I don’t care about that. I am a fruit lover. I don’t think sugar is the enemy. Of course, too much sugar – too much of anything really – is bad. But just because it’s possible to eat too much protein for example, does that mean we should stop eating protein? No.

A bit of most things is what I call a healthy diet. And that includes sugar. Whether you want to have your sugar in your morning jam on toast, in your yogurt, in your ice cream or in your fruit is up to you. To lose weight you need to limit your daily intake, but that doesn’t equal cutting out sugar completely.

I like a bit of sweetness some evenings. Fruit is an excellent source of that, so I’ll continue to have it despite people saying it’s bad.
