Sometimes with food and drinks you just feel like you want to have the familiar, classic flavors. Think: Caprese Salad, simple but so delicious, high quality Vanilla Ice cream, a simple Brownie etc. When it comes to smoothies, for us it has to be the all-time classic combination of banana and berries. It just gives that creamy structure and the berries cut the sweetness a bit with their tangy flavor. To lift the fruity flavors we added some yoghurt to the mix. Something we could have anytime of the day!
The twist in this combination lies in the extra nutrition by sneaking in some spinach and hemp seeds. The spinach might give the smoothie a less attractive color, mixed with the blueberries and all, but it’s all about the taste right? I swear, if this doesn’t make you smile in the morning, we will have to take extreme measures and deliver some puppies to your doorstep!
List of Ingredients:
- Handful of Blueberries
- 1 Banana
- 1 cup (soy) Yoghurt
- Handful of Spinach
- 1 tsp Hemp seeds
Classic B&B with a Twist Smoothie Song: Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
Oh the lovely Paloma Faith…..Born with that name, she was destined to become an artist! Many people don’t know that she actually started out as an actress and has appeared in both UK TV shows and film (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus). Her latest album A Perfect Contradiction, which was released last March, is a lovely mix of pop and soul with a jazzy feel to it.
Only Love Can Hurt Like This is the second single of her album, soon to be followed by Trouble with my baby this month. We are eager to know what this girl has got in store for us in the future. For now, this is a perfect way to slide in that weekend effortlessly.
