This fresh-tasting smoothie is a great way to start the day.

My Strawberry and Lime smoothie contains a good source of protein from hydrolysed collagen peptides and healthy fats from avocado and nut butter, plus vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants from fruit.

Ingredients

1 cup (150g) fresh strawberries, (if using frozen reduce the ice)

1 sml or 1/2 lge banana(s)

1 cup (250ml) coconut milk, (from a carton) or use a nut milk

1/4 avocado(s)

1 Tbsp almond butter/spread, or cashew butter if preferred

1 Tbsp collagen peptides unflavoured (grass-fed)

2 tsp chia seeds

1 tsp lime zest

1 tsp vanilla extract (organic)

1 tsp maple syrup (100%)

1 cup ice cubes

Directions

Add all the above ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until you reach a smooth and creamy texture. Add a little extra coconut milk if you would prefer a thinner consistency.

Pour into a glass and serve.
