Green Lunchtime Superfood Smoothie

If a smoothie could never replace a Full English or bowl of cereal in your book, how about trying a nutritional, green lunchtime smoothie instead? Superfood smoothies are super for a reason, they’re chock full of nutrients to make your skin glow and hair shine (and just generally make you feel good all round). This recipe from Sweet Peas and Saffron contains spinach which is a wonderful source of iron, mango which is full of antioxidants and chia and flax seeds for crucial dietary fibre.

You’ll need:

  • Spinach
  • Almond milk
  • Mango
  • Ground flax

Soups are an easy and delicious answer to what to cook for dinner, but if it’s a baking hot day outside you may not fancy slaving over a hot stove and filling your belly with warm liquid. That’s why Spanish cold tomato soup, gazpacho, is so great for summer and we love Easy Cooking with Molly’s take on it.

You’ll need:

  • Tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Sourdough bread
  • Water
  • Sherry vinegar
  • Seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • Croutons, cheese and cilantro to garnish
