I posted a couple of days ago about enjoying a healthy breakfast – one of the new habits I am trying to build in September.  This Rainbow Smoothie is one of my healthy breakfast options

This is Day 4 of my 30 Day Blogging Challenge. I don’t want to spend a huge amount of time blogging at weekends so this is more of a photo post.

I love a smoothie in the morning. I’ve got my trusty Nutribullet and I’m not afraid to use it!

I like to chuck a lot of stuff in, and don’t really mind if the result turns out sludge brown. It usually tastes delicious! So this morning I made a Rainbow smoothie for breakfast.


Red I started with Frozen strawberries

Orange – I chucked in some frozen melon and papaya

Yellow – frozen pineapple & a fresh banana for extra thickness and creaminess


Green – frozen spinach – fresh is better but I didn’t have any so these frozen nuggets are really handy (and cheap)


Blue – Fresh blueberries – I love blackberries or blackcurrants too.


Purple – fresh grapes – yummy!


Add some oats and some flax seed mix for protein, fibre and Omega 3s


Give it a quick whizz in the Nutribullet……

All the colours in one rainbow smoothie – nicely chilled and ready to drink because of all the frozen stuff!
