With winter behind us, we begin to look at healthier eating plans as well as fun, light and easy ideas to help us get back into shape for summer.
Summer soups are an equally healthy alternative to salads and range in variety of styles, from a lovely light and chunky Spanish inspired gazpacho soup to a chilled smooth cucumber, mint and parsley soup. They can be served as a refreshing starter or a quick main that can be added to your menu when entertaining friends.
The Moulinex Soup and Co is a handy appliance that can help you create soups and smoothies alike. It can blend, puree, crush and cook just about any delicious mix of ingredients for a convenient and healthy dish which can help increase your daily intake of fruits and vegetables at the same time.
Another way to increase your fibre and fruit intake is to convert your daily breakfast of oats or cereal into a great tasting on-the-go breakfast smoothie. All you need to do is throw together fresh or frozen fruit, some fat free yoghurt, a twist of your favourite citrus fruit juice and some oat bran or muesli and the Soup and Co will do the rest.
Nothing does it like a cold and creamy milkshake in those hot summer months. This recipe may seem so easy however simple can be the most delectable when those sweet tooth cravings arise. If you feel this is not indulgent enough for your tastes buds to handle, try adding in some chocolate chips or a swirl of caramel syrup.
+ 2 bananas
+ 500 ml cold skimmed milk
+ 10 g liquid honey
+ 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
• Peel and cut up the bananas and add to the Soup & Co. Add the milk, honey and the scoop of vanilla ice cream.
• Blend on maximum speed for 2 minutes. Pour into four glasses and serve immediately.
