Something a little different on the blog today, as we've been having quite a lot of nice weather recently *touch wood* I thought I would feature a little recipe that I tried out for a zesty breakfast treat! Recently I was offered the chance to review the Kenwood Smoothie 2GO, and share a recipe which I made in it. The Kenwood Smoothie Maker 2 Go, is like a normal smoothie maker with a twist, the twist being that once the smoothie is complete you take off the blend and can swap the blade for a lid and it's ready to go, as simple as that. Which is such a creative idea for those who drink them on the go or don't have time to faff around with different glasses. I decided to put mine in a milk bottle as I had previously been to Ikea and purchased some and needed a use for them and my quirky straws!
Orange Passion Recipe:
I thought it was my first smoothie creation I would try something simple with things I currently had in the house. To create the smoothie I used:
- 1 large orange
- 1 large carrot
- 1 pot of fat free yogurt (which can be changed to fruit juice or milk if preferred)
- 7 ice cubes (for an extra burst of cold)
Step 1: Peel the the carrot then dice into small chunks,
Step 2: Peel the orange and separate then cut into smaller pieces.
Step 3: Place both in the blender and then add a tub of fat free yogurt.
Step 4: Finally add the ice cubes
Step 5: Turn the Blender on, it took me 2 minutes to create this, but dependent on what you use it can take different amounts of time. The less bits you want within your smoothie, blast it for longer.
Step 6: Unscrew the blender, take the blade off and replace with lid and you're ready to go!
Step 7: Enjoy the Zesty goodness!
