Summer is the time when it is good to eat lighter and when the weather is as hot and sticky as it is right now, I often don't feel like eating anything much, so a smoothie packed with summer berries for breakfast is a really good start to the day.
I love berries of any description, for this smoothie I used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, all of which are prolific in the shops right now. Pomegranate juice, full of heart healthy antioxidants, avocado and a potassium rich banana.
1 cup blueberries, raspberries, strawberries (or more or less to suit your own taste)
1 small avocado - cubed
50 ml pomegranate juice
50 ml coconut water (or water)
juice of ½ lemon or lime (optional)
few cubes of ice, to your own taste, I blend 3 or 4 then add a couple of cubes
to my glass for a lovely cool, refreshing drink, full of antioxidants, vitamins and good fats from the avocado.
Blend, sip slowly and enjoy!
