'Not Quite' Blackberry Crumble Smoothie

'Not Quite' Blackberry Crumble Smoothie

The nights are drawing in, the leaves are starting to change colour, there is a nip in the air first thing on a morning…autumn looks to be on its way.

We have come up with our take on a family favorite - Blackberry Crumble and made a ‘Not Quite' Blackberry Crumble Smoothie instead.  Not Quite Blackberry Crumble Smoothie 350ml Oat Milk...

Beta-Spice-Up Your Ginger Smoothie

As the cold weather finally hits us, it was time to think about smoothie ingredients that could warm the body, keep the sniffles away, improve circulation, decrease aches and pains, be a good source of vitamins and minerals as well as give an energy lift to fight the dark mornings. It’s certainly a tall order to achieve with just one drink. Why not give our favourite winter concoction a go and see what you think for yourself. Say good morning to your new breakfast friend our... "Beta-Spice-Up Your Ginger Smoothie". ¼...

Oh, how we love the Defender!

Oh, how we love the Defender!

Well, we had such a fab time trekking around the Stang Forest this weekend in the Defender, that we thought we'd share a few pics with you as the sunlight dwindled over the Yorkshire Dales on the longest day of the year - the Summer Solstice. We are also very sad to hear that this great British icon is nearing the end of its production life after 67 years this December. I bet quite a few of you have many happy memories exploring the wilds of beyond in these machines over the...

CHOC 'N' NUT UNITE

CHOC 'N' NUT UNITE

It’s no secret that we love our smoothies so it may come as no surprise that some of our good friends are just as nutty about smoothies as we are. We usually sing and dance about the green varieties but we were rather enamoured with the chocolate and nut one that was made for us recently by the lovely Lanchana, in fact so much so that we felt it was good enough to share so if peanuts and chocolate turn your stomach you best look away now :-) otherwise, those of...

Guilt free chocolate

Guilt free chocolate

We love a bit of smoothie here at OG and the usual response from people who see our 'Heavenly Green Smoothie' recipe card is "ewwwww" haha until they try it of course. The look on their faces when they realise that actually it tastes great could be a blog post all of its own. So can we tempt you with a bit of chocolate in your smoothie this time? It's fair to say that when we think of chocolate it is usually the kind that is full of sugar and categorised into...
