Sunshine smoothie

A large and delicious taste of summer for under £1. I am a great fan of frozen fruit in my freezer-storecupboard, for affordability, and some even suggest they have more vitamins than fresh fruit that has been sitting around for a while. At my local supermarket (Tesco) they sell 500grams of frozen strawberries for £1.99 or 3 boxes for £5. This smoothie is a large one person portion (happy husband) and uses 100grams of frozen strawberries- 33pence.

Not trying to suggest that we are all pinching pennies, but just to point out there are many ways to eat more fruit and vegetables without spending the earth

This is GORGEOUS.

  • 125 mls water
  • the juice of 1 lemon (15- 30pence, depending)
  • 100grams of frozen strawberries (in this case, 33pence)
  • 1 flavoursome apple (20-40pence, depending….)
  • 1 flavoursome clementine (10-20pence, depending)

My photo uploader has been malfunctioning for ages, hence no photo again.  For a more filling smoothie add a small banana and a touch more water. I would not omit the lemon here- it totally lifts it. Bon appetit friends!
