Addicted to smoothies - two new recipes

S enjoying a chocolate smoothie for breakfast.

I think I'm experiencing my first ever pregnancy craving, for smoothies. I can not get enough of them. Every day I feel antsy until I get my smoothie hit.

Hmmmm. Mmmm. Hmmmm! And then life is so good.

I've been experimenting around a little, taking my base recipes from Riddlelove's smoothie catalogue and adding a few extras that my body seems to want, like coconut oil and a few drops of fermented cod liver oil.

Since smoothies are on my mind, I thought I would share my two current favourite recipes with you.

Chocolate dream smoothie


Blend on high speed until smooth, then get it in you as fast as humanly possible (unless you're not a crazy pregnant lady, in which case you can savour it at a more leisurely pace).

Berry delight smoothie

  • 1c raw cream or milk (or combination)
  • 1/2c milk kefir or homemade yoghurt (or combination)
  • 1c ice
  • 1 banana
  • 1c frozen berries (blueberry, raspberry and strawberry is a nice combination)
  • 1T honey (if we open a tin of fruit, I save the juice and use that instead to sweeten this smoothie)
  • 1T coconut oil (you could melt it first for a smoother finish, but I don't bother)
  • Few drops fermented cod liver oil

Blend on high speed until smooth, then drink it while still standing at the bench (unless you're not experiencing mad pregnancy cravings, in which case you can sit down and enjoy it at your leisure).

  1. yum! we have a daily kefir smoothie. Usually just banana, but add mango or berries when in season (ie when cheaply available!).
