Refreshing Summer Berry Smoothie

It’s the hottest day of the year so far, summer is here!  Very often I don’t feel like eating too much, so a smoothie packed with summer berries for breakfast is a really delicious and nutritious start to the day.

I used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, all of which are prolific in the shops right now.  Coconut water, avocado and a potassium rich banana. 

Coconut water has many essential vitamins, including vitamin C, B1, B2 and vitamin B6.  It also contains significant amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium.  More on coconut water and coconut oil in future posts.

Recipe:

1 cup blueberries, raspberries, strawberries (or more or less to suit your own taste)

½ banana

1 small avocado – cubed

100 ml  coconut water

juice of  ½  small lemon or lime

few cubes of ice, to your own taste, blend 3 or 4 with the above, then add a couple of cubes to your glass for a lovely cool, refreshing drink, full of antioxidants, vitamins and good fats from the avocado.

Blend, sip slowly and enjoy!
