I’ll be honest, I’ve never owned a blender. Come to think of it, I don’t think my mum ever owned one either. I’m not sure why. I used to love drinking banana smoothies as a kid, but we would have to mash up the banana with a fork before putting it into the milkshake maker and whiz it up with milk.

I attended a conference a month or so ago and heard Kemi speak about “adding more raw” food into your diet. (I might do a separate post on Kemi later.) I’ve always been a pretty healthy eater, but I thought I’d start making green smoothies.

I have a hand held stick blender which I used but I decided to get a proper blender. I bought a Vitamix because a) they are amazing, b) it will last forever, and c) it came with a free knife, chopping board and a cool cooler bag with wheels.

I’ve been making green smoothies, but this morning I made this delicious one…



•  banana
•  kiwi fruit
•  berries
•  a small stick of celery
•  almond milk
•  biodynamic yoghurt
•  agave
•  sunflower kernels
•  walnuts
•  chia

Throw everything into the Vitamix and whizzzzzzz!
