I made a smoothie with butternut !!!!!
This smoothie, is out of this world, and how dynamic is the colour ??? I know, all that orange, just so bright and vibrant. I think this smoothie is screeeaming summer…yes, it’s heading for summertime here…so I selfishly will be enjoying the sunshine whilst a lot of you will be curled up in front of a heater, apologies, in fact double apologies, as that is how bad I am feeling 😦 .
So anyway, of course I made this and loved it. I actually had to make another, and it has been on the top of my list of fave smoothies, I am not going to lie !!!
Orange, Papaya, Butternut and Chia Smoothie
Preparation time: 8 minutes
Makes just over 1 cup
1/2 cup (125 millilitres) roasted, mashed butternut
50 millilitres orange/mango juice
1/2 freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup (250 millilitres) chopped papaya
1 Tablespoon (15 millilitres) chia seeds
Put all the above ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and the consistency you like.
NB* The above ingredients can be approximate. There is no hard and fast rule when doing my kind of smoothie, as it is really all about your taste, and the consistency that you like.
