Breville Blend-Active Smoothie Maker

Breville Blend Active smoothie recipes
A little bit of a non beauty related post from me today as I am obsessed with my new Breville Blend-Active Blender. You definitely know that you're getting on a bit when you get over-excited about kitchen appliances!

I have recently decided that I need to go on a bit of a health kick as I have become too lazy when it comes to food and I've been cramming my body with way too many carbs and fatty foods. I'm going to New York in October and I want to be as fit and healthy as possible as there will be a lot of walking involved, so that is my goal. I can't remember the last time that breakfast was included in my diet and I am very aware that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For some reason, I just can't eat food in the morning, it makes me feel really ill! I have therefore been searching for a healthy alternative to food and this is where smoothie making comes in.

I am by no means a pro-smoothie maker but the Blend-Active Blender is pretty fool proof and I threw together a couple of delicious recipes earlier on today:

Banana/Fresh Berry Smoothie

300ml Almond Milk
1 cup of raspberries
1 cup of blueberries
1 chopped banana
1/4 cup of chia seeds

Frozen Mixed Berry Smoothie

300ml of cold water
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup of chia seeds

I can't wait to try out some more recipes, I think a green smoothie with spinach will be next on my menu!

What do you eat as a healthy breakfast? Do you have any delicious smoothie recipes to share with me?
