Making yummy smoothies at home

With my recent health kick, not only am I trying to work out and live a better lifestyle, I am also trying to eat a lot better and find the best way to ave fruit is by making a smoothie. I am loving the smoothie mixes from www.superbsmoothies.com.

My favourite mix is Fine Fettle, which is banana and strawberry, you simply mix water or juice with it in the blender and you have a delicious smoothie. One pack contains 1 banana and 10 strawberries. They are gluten free, dairy free, and vegan which is great for anyone that has a food intolerance or chooses a vegan lifestyle.

Freeze dry food is just as good as fresh fruit and it lasts a lot longer! It is something you can keep in the cupboard for months and will always taste great 🙂

fruit snacks

Superb also have a range of fruit snacks which are great to have throughout the day as a healthy treat. From mango to banana or apple, there is something for everyone. A pack of dried mango is only 26cal and is great to have between meals as a quick healthy snack.

Get fruity

As I am trying to eat better and incorporate healthier snacks into my life, 

I decided to give the Get Fruity bars a go.

There are so many different flavours available I just couldn’t decide what to try so went for a mixture!

The best thing about these bars is the fact they are the perfect snack. You can pop one in your lunch box, hand bag, in the car, even in your pocket!

They are gluten and dairy free which is a massive bonus as I have a slight intolerance to both of these! They are suitable for vegans too and have no added sugar, so they are pretty much something everyone can eat!

The bars are all made by blending oats with fruit, so it is one of your fave a day(big thumbs up). 

I am really impressed with the large range of flavours, the first one I tried was the moist mixed berry. I usually don’t eat berries as I don’t like the texture of them and the seeds, so usually to try and up my fruit intake I blend everything into smoothies, so it was nice to actually be able to eat something good for you and it taste good.

I like the texture of the bars with the fruit and the oats, and they are quite filling 🙂

The raspberry and strawberry bars were so yummy too, I think the berry ones are my favourites. 

The pineapple, coconut and lime had a taste I cant really describe. I am so used to blending lots of fruit together for my smoothies that I like having multiple flavours in one, so this was really nice and refreshing almost.

You can buy them in places like Tesco and Co Op, as well as online (if you want to buy a box of 25 you can get them direct from www.getfruitybar.co.uk)

I think I am pretty much hooked on these now as my afternoon snack at work 😉
