Finnberrys wild nordic super berry powders have taken over my kitchen since they sent me some samples, especially at breakfast time. For me they are such a taste from home and the powder I used in this recipe especially, lingon. Don’t worry if you don’t have this particular ingredient though as this smoothie is delicious anyway. This has been my breakfast a lot for the last couple of weeks and I’m quite excited to share the recipe with you.Smoothies really are a great way to get a lot of goodies in the morning all in one glass. I love smoothies, I will admit it, I could have smoothies for every meal. At least since we got a new high speed blender which has really changed my smoothie making game.
A friend of mine, Caitlin who writes this blog, was raving about her new Nutribullet and how smooth her smoothies were now. Yes these are the things we talk about when we meet up, we share a love of food related articles, haha. She said it was so great for frozen fruit and even root vegetables. I was tempted, especially since our blender has seen its glory days, and was talking about this enough for my partner to get me an early birthday present. More than a month early, I think I was maybe talking about it a bit too much. Rob went for a Nutri Ninja though after doing some research and I must say it’s a great machine. Enough about blenders though. This smoothie is great for a morning pick me up and to up the nutritional value I add some oats and nut butter to get that extra bit of protein and some healthy fats too. I hope you guys will give it a whizz, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as me.
