Let’s pretend that summer hasn’t abandoned us for this year with some simple and totally delicious berry smoothies using local and seasonal fruits.
August is peak harvest time for Dorset blueberries (I still find it surprising that this super-food is grown in Dorset – they seems so exotic!), and summer raspberries are in full swing too.
Blend 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup raspberries with one banana and a dollop of yoghurt for a delicious fruity pick-me-up. If you want to make it more substantial for breakfast, you can include some porridge oats and if you want to hide one of your 5 a day greens you can put a handful of baby spinach in and I promise, you won’t even know it’s there!
Most brilliantly, you can prepare the ingredients each smoothie mix in separate ziploc bags, freeze and then just take out the one you want. Easy Peasy!
