Valentine's Day Breakfast Smoothies

Sup people, so today is VALENTINES DAY!!!!! So you've already got all the dishes ready for your three course meal right? You haven't? Well check out my three previous blog posts for an entree, main and dessert.

To really tops things off I decided that I should also teach you how to make a drink that you can use during the night, so something that you can drink after dessert. Night cap? I don't think that's the right word....but something that you can drink after dinner.

This is going to be something light and fruity, perfect to make you feel healthy after that large Valentines day meal. In fact you can also serve this for breakfast in can still make it in time as long as you are behind Sydney in time zones, in other words practically the rest of the world.

I'm going to be showing you how to make 2 different fruit smoothies, one that has a refreshing zing, whilst the other is a nice summer one.

The first one will be a cucumber, kiwi and apple smoothie (summer) and the next one is a lime, apple and pineapple smoothie (refreshing)

So I guess it's time to get started:

Cucumber, kiwi and apple smoothie 
½ small cucumber
1 apple
1 kiwi tiny knob of fresh ginger
few cashews
small glass of apple juice
pinch of salt
dollop of natural yoghurt
extra chopped kiwis (optional)
Lime, apple and pineapple smoothie
½ small lime
1 apple
3 rings of a pineapple (1/2 cup)
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream OR some yogurt
2tbs honey
pineapple rings cut in half (optional)

Cucumber Kiwi and Apple Smoothie
1. Peel the kiwi and ginger, core the apple and roughly chop all three.
2. Chop up the cucumber. 
3. Whiz everything in a blender or juicer until smooth
4. Done, serve with some chopped kiwis on top.
Lime, apple and pineapple smoothie
1. Core and peel the apple and roughly chop it up.
2. Place all ingredients in a blender and squeeze in half the lime, whiz until it is smooth.
3. Serve in a glass with the pineapple on the edge of the glass.

I hope that you will all like these refreshing smoothies because they are really great for your body, packed with vitamins and antioxidants that will make your skin shine. 

Hopefully you will all have a great Valentine's Day, whether you are alone or in a couple, and that you are most important of all happy. I'll be continuing on with the rest of my blog week, and I look forward to posting up more interesting recipes for you all to follow.
