Fred and Bex
It’s that time of the year again, when colds and sniffles are lurking everywhere, hoping to spoil the festive fun – so show them the cold shoulder with this delicious Fred & Bex fruity smoothie packed with great healthy ingredients.
Blueberries are a famous superfood, full of antioxidants (which help fight the damaging effect of free radicals) as well as Vitamin C (vital to boost your immune system at this time of year) and manganese (essential for the antioxidant system). Of course, it can be hard to get fresh blueberries in the winter month, but I actually prefer to use frozen ones – I bought a bag of mixed frozen blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and blackcurrants from the supermarket and put them straight into the blender without defrosting. They’ll still blend easily and serving this smoothie chilled is really refreshing.
Also packed into this pretty purple smoothie are walnuts (full of powerful antioxidants and great for boosting heart and brain health) and honey (great for the immune system). Finally – and some might say most importantly – it tastes scrumptious, with a real flavour kick from the Fred & Bex Blueberry Vinegar. It’s the perfect way to start the day!
Blueberry Booster with muesli
120g frozen fruit, including blueberries
200ml skimmed milk
1 tbsp walnuts
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp Fred & Bex blueberry vinegar
Makes a big glass for one, or smaller glasses for two
The method here is pretty simple – just chuck everything into the blender and whizz until smooth. You can play about a little bit with the proportions, so that it tastes just right for you – add more milk if you’d like it to be less thick, or more honey and less vinegar if you’d like it to be sweeter (although if you’re wondering about adding vinegar to a smoothie, don’t worry – this is nothing like the vinegar you put on your chips! It adds a big flavour punch with a little sharpness, but no bitterness).
