Healthy Smoothie Recipes

I'm sure I'm not alone in getting a bit carried away over the festive season, eating a little too much of the things I shouldn't. Thankfully I didn't splurge uncontrollably, but even so, as soon as January arrived I felt I needed to re-introduce some discipline and get back on track.

So I've been trying out some new smoothies, packed with superfood ingredients and intended to help me lose a little weight ahead of my next holiday. I have enjoyed one every morning for breakfast along with a cup of Pukka Supreme Matcha green tea. So far I'm feeling pretty good and haven't been tempted to snack mid-morning.
