There is no denying the perks of smoothies and juices. I am no stranger to the eye roll at yet another smoothie/juice Instagram post as the ever growing health craze continues. However, why should we deminish the smoothie craze when there is no real disadvantage of them?

Today i find myself laying in bed feeling sorry for myself as i have been struck down with tonsillitis. I don't know about you but when i am ill, i really crave smoothies and juices. They are perfect for when you are not feeling great and the prospect of a giant plate of fruit and veg seems too much to handle. I love smoothies because you can make them up as you go along. Unless there is a particular recipe i am looking for (energy boost, clear skin, detox, etc.) or i just happen to fancy something, then when it comes to making a smoothie i simply look what ingredients i have and go from there.

In my opinion there are no rules to smoothie/juice making. Like with anything, it is all about trial and error. It may look like swamp water or like it has come out of an infants nappy, but if it tastes good then whats the problem!

 This morning smoothie consisted of:

2 handfuls of strawberries

a handful of frozen red grapes

3 big handfuls of spinach

1/4 of a banana

teaspoon of flax seed

1/3 cup of water

I decided to add more spinach than i usually would to my smoothie this morning because Spinach is high in Iron and Vitamin K which restores energy and increases vitality.
