5 smoothies to get you going in the morning


If there’s one addition to the modern kitchen that has actually made a difference... it’s the smoothie maker.
These genius little machines don’t take up a lot of space, are easy to clean, and are absolutely brilliant time savings devices. With our current, ‘go climb that ladder’ corporate world, no one really has the 1950’s fantasy of the sit down breakfast with the kids. But rather it’s spilling coffee as you run to out the door with barely cooked toast.


A better way to start your morning is getting on board the smoothie train. A well-made smoothie is the killer addition to your morning routine that can see you (finally!) getting a good breakfast. We think, the simpler, the better. Throw in some fruit, a bit of milk, or yoghurt if you’re feeling fancy, and hit the whizz button. Ten or twenty seconds later and you’re out the door, job done! 


Check out these five brilliant recipes for some deliciousness each working day of the week!

Mango blitz.

1 mango; you can use frozen if it’s not in season

1 banana

½ cup of coconut water

Optional: pinch of cinnamon or turmeric

Garnish: crumbled banana chips

Paint the town.

1 cup of blueberries; fresh or frozen

1 small raw beetroot; peeled and diced

¼ cup of pineapple

¼ cup of vanilla or natural flavoured yoghurt

Optional: teaspoon of manuka honey

Garnish: fresh blueberries

Blackberry gold.

1 banana

1 cup of fresh or frozen blackberries

1 cup of vanilla or plain Greek yoghurt

½ cup of orange juice

Optional: 1 teaspoon of ginger

Garnish: break up a blackberry into segments and sprinkle over the top

Mean & green.

1 banana

1 cup of baby spinach leaves

1 cup milk, or coconut water

1 teaspoon of manuka honey

Optional: ¼ cup of oats to thicken the smoothie

Garnish: crumbled banana chips

Aussie punch.

1 banana

1 cup of pineapple; fresh, frozen, or tinned

1 cup of coconut milk

1 teaspoon of manuka honey

Garnish: pineapple wedges

The method for any of these smoothies is the same. Use one of our better smoothie blenders, place the fruit in followed by the liquids, then blend until you can’t see any chunks. Pour it into a glass, or travel cup, sprinkle with garnish if you like and enjoy a better breakfast. If you like the smoothie cold you can add some ice cubes, if you like it a little thicker then you can add in a ¼ cup of oats. Experiment with the flavour combinations and figure out which one makes you feel better. 


We’ve included recipes that cater to most dietary requirements, but if something is not to your tastes you can experiment with a replacement, or simply leave it out. There’s no real rule to what makes a smoothie perfect, but these recipes will give you some good ideas for what to add to your next creation.
