ingredients

And the key ingredient to give it a tropical twist:

passion fruit

  Ingredients:

  • 3 Carrots
  • 2 Oranges
  • 2 Grapefruit (I chose 1 red, 1 white)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Passion Fruit
  • A Large Thumb Of Ginger
  • A Large Thumb Of Turmeric
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon MCT Oil
  • ½ Pint Of Water

Method:

1.  Wash your ingredients.

2. Peel your oranges, grapefruit, lemon, turmeric and ginger.

3. Cut off the ends of the carrots.

4. Chop the fruit and veg into chunks (cut the carrots into smaller pieces than I did as I broke my blender with these!).

5. Chuck half of them into your blender.

6. Add the flax seeds.

7. Scoop in the passion fruit.

8. Throw in the rest of your fruit and veg into the blender (if struggling for space grab a potato masher and squish them down).

9. Attach your blender to the rest of it (this step is important if the bottom of your blender leaks when you add liquid).

10.  Add the MCT oil and water.

11. Mix until the consistency looks smooth.

12. When the shake looks nice and creamy, detach from the blender and pour out as desired.

Perfect as a light, healthy, immune boosting breakfast for the family, sharing with your flatmates or just something to sip on throughout the day!
