Every morning I have fruit for breakfast. Sometimes it is something as simple as an apple, and other times I actually make myself a fruit salad. I would love to juice every morning but I seem to often run out of time. The one thing that I can enjoy every morning is a smoothie. I make them the night before and bring them with me to work. I enjoy any type of smoothie but I have a few requirements when making them. The first is that I do not use ice! I don’t have ice in any of my drinks as I do not enjoy the way ice dilutes the flavour of what I am drinking. The other is that I make a pure fruit smoothie. I would add yoghurt to the smoothie if I were drinking them straight away, but for breakfast I prefer to leave the yoghurt out, as the smoothie spends a fair amount of time on my desk before I finish it. I always use frozen banana for my smoothies as it adds a nice creaminess and flavour, and if I am drinking the smoothie straight away, it replaces the ice one would normally use. Today’s smoothie is a simple mixture of kiwi, banana and strawberry and I can promise you that it tastes good!
