Berry Blast Juice – a rockin’ way to start your day!
As you guys know, I love my berries (Cue clip from Ice Age), so it will come as no surprise that I often start my day with a delight deluge of some sweet zesty fruity jewels.
My Berry Blast Juice is truly an awesome way to get your body fired up first thing in the morning.
Naturally it’s packed with an abundance of fructose but I love to throw in some seeds (sunflower, pumpkin and chia) and smoothie-fy it with some coconut milk yoghurt.
Over to you Lil’ Richard…
Right, here’s how I make it…
2 heaped handfuls of blueberries
2 heaped handfuls of blackberries
2 heaped handfuls of raspberries
2 heaped handfuls of strawberries
2 heaped handfuls/ a large bunch of seedless grapes
2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp of sunflower seeds
3 tbsp of coconut milk yoghurt
3 tbsp of soaked chia seeds (check out my post on chia seeds to see what I mean by ‘soaked’)
A dash of water
Bits you’ll need:
A colander or a large deep bowl
A nuitibullet, blender or juicer
1. Wash all the fruit thoroughly under cold water and put in a colander or large bowl. Remove green tops of the strawberries and cut into smallish chunks if they’re quite large.
2. Spoon half the fruit in the nutribullet (or your preferred appliance). Add a dash of water and the pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Blitz for a few secs to a juice-like consistency.
3. Add the rest of the fruit, yoghurt and chia seeds. Blitz one last time till smoothie-like.
4. Pour and enjoy!
Switch it up!
I don’t tend to eat much dairy which is why I opt for the coconut milk yoghurt however a greek style yoghurt will generate the same results so use whatever you prefer.
