As the weather has changed here in Ontario and I’m resentfully pulling out socks every morning I’m feeling more and more tired. Is it simply resenting the feel of these thicker clothes or does the reduction in sunlight actually have this affect on everyone? I don’t know but I do know that I cannot rely upon coffee to get me going in the mornings so I was on a quest to find a great smoothie recipe to give me the boost I need in the mornings.
Recently I was provided a GORGEOUS KitchenAid Diamond Blender for a future review (make a note to come back for that one!) which had a recipe from KitchenAid which is jammed with fruit to fuel me up! It’s their Energy Fruit Smoothie Recipe and I’m going to share it with you all simply because I prefer to think that I’m not the only one who is lagging these days. There is beauty in shared challenges right?
Energy Fruit Smoothie Recipe (serves 4)
- 1 cup of pineapple, peeled and chopped
- 1 medium orange, peeled
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 medium banana, peeled
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup crushed ice
You just cannot get more simple than this! Place all ingredients into the blender and blend on medium/high until it reaches your desired consistency. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
There it is friends, a lovely smoothie which will get that fruit into your daily diet and help keep energy up!
Don’t forget to come back to see what else I’m making with my KitchenAid Diamond Blender…..pretty soon there will be a giveaway for my Canadian readers…..
