This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

To celebrate European Heart Failure Awareness Day (Friday 5th May), Ninja Kitchen have teamed up with olive oil company Filippo Berio to challenge some of us recipe ninjas to create a healthy smoothie recipe. We all know that smoothies are amazing for general health, while olive oil has been recognised for years as being fantastic for a healthy heart – so why not combine the two?!

I fancied going down the super green, tropical vibe in celebration of the nicer weather Spring is treating us to, using Filippo Berio’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil which offers a delicate punch of flavour but without being overpowering and works wonderfully with the other ingredients. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • Large handful frozen pineapple chunks
  • Large handful frozen mango chunks
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Handful spinach leaves
  • 1 tsp any green superfood or matcha powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 20ml Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 150ml coconut water
  • To decorate - fresh strawberries, freeze-dried raspberries, pumpkin seeds, bee pollen

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
