I don’t know if you heard but apparently there’s been a heatwave in Britain recently. Even here in Manchester where you’re lucky to even see the sun never mind actually feel true warmth (me? Dramatic? Nope. Never.) the sun has been uncharacteristically bright and warm and people are looooooving it. Who wouldn’t? But with that, my trusty oaty breakfast is just not going to cut it. Cue this pretty Mango Raspberry Smoothie Bowl, made with lots of frozen fruit and veg (yes veg, more on that later) it is the perfect cooling brekkie to survive this weather.
I like to use frozen fruit and veg for any kind of smoothie simply because its so easy. I am notoriously good and forgetting berries and bits of fruit in the back of the fridge and having to throw them away because they go bad. Frozen stops this from happening. Plus everything is pre-chopped so you can throw what you need straight into your blender. No fuss required. That’s a big win in my book.
Now back to that veg I mentioned. This recipe throws in a couple of florets of frozen cauliflower. Yup cauliflower. Firstly, and most importantly, you can’t taste it. But it adds a creaminess to your smoothie while toning down the sweetness a little bit. Plus you’re adding fibre and extra micronutrients which is never a bad thing.
Toppings wise, the world is your oyster. Fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, yoghurt, compote, granola, whatever you’ve got going that will satisfy. I like fresh fruit and some Quinoa Seed Granola.
You can use whatever blending apparatus you have on hand to blitz everything up. I use this Bosch Food Processor which comes with a separate blending jug and blade. It does a great job of breaking everything down, plus I use the other attachments all the time for things like grinding coffee beans or making this Vietnamese Pesto. Praise those kitchen appliances that you actually use on the regular!
