It was a smoothie heavy blender party last week, with two of our features, and five out of the six recipes linked up being delicious, superfood rich smoothies. That’s not all we had going on though, and I implore you to check out the refreshing and cooling Cherry Mint Spritzer by Almost Bananas (as well as her Apricot Juice Syrup with a fermented ingredient option). If it’s really the healthy smoothies you’re craving however check out out features, a Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie by In Search of Yummyness or a Kale and Spinach Smoothie by My Juice Cleanse Recipes, or any of the other links from last week’s Blender Party.

Ally’s Party Favour: Creamy Kiwi Apple Smoothie
With avocado and banana, this smoothie is rich, creamy and filling – it’s almost a ‘thickie’! I love the satisfyingly tangy taste of kiwi, apple and lemon and enjoy making this smoothie extra, extra thick – something easily done using simple ingredients from your fruit bowl of pantry.
- Flesh of 1 medium avocado
- 1 medium banana
- 1 green apple, quartered and cored
- 2 kiwi fruit
- 1 cucumber
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 1 - 1½ cups spring or filtered water
Optional extras: add one of these to the recipe for an even creamier smoothie (may change suitability for some dietary needs/choices)
- ½ tbsp flax meal/LSA
- 2 tbsp rolled oats (not paleo/gluten-free)
- 2 tbsp natural yoghurt or milk kefir (not vegan/dairy-free)
- 1 extra banana/avocado
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Use frozen banana instead of room temperature
- Handful of activated cashews
- Add all ingredients to the bowl of a high powered blender (such as the Optimum blender range). Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
- Add some of the optional ingredients to make your smoothie even thicker and creamier.
- Serve in two tall glasses and enjoy.
