5 Autumn / Winter Smoothies

Vitamin Packed Smoothies

I love a morning smoothie, we are lucky enough to have picked and stored a lot of blackberries this year so don’t be surprised to find them in a few recipes!

Smoothies are a great way to add to your fruit and vegetable intake and although I do combine my fruits and vegetables it doesn’t mean you have to. When it comes to digestion and digestive health, everyone is different. We each have a unique microbiome and respond to foods differently.

So, if you don’t feel good about combing fruit and vegetables or these particular combinations don't work for you make adjustments. Take out the spinach, make a vegetable only green smoothie, don’t mix that pineapple and banana. But do experiment, find what works for you.

Here is a list of in season fruit, vegetables and herbs to choose from plus 5 of my favourite winter smoothies:

Fruits

  • Apples (cooking and eating)
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries

Herbs

  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Parsley
  • Mint
  • Dill
  • Basil

Vegetables

  • Courgettes
  • Cucumber

And a bunch of others I won’t be juicing! You can read more here.
