Zero waste recipes

Zero waste melon and peach summer smoothie

It seems that everything we consume must come in all sorts of single-use plastic packaging or containers but little do we realise that we can reduce this waste to zero. I love my protein smoothies and lately I’ve been making sure to make them as eco-sustainable as possible. The biggest challenge was to avoid almond milk packaging and I managed to replace it by just adding 50g of roasted almonds, some honey and water.

Today I made a fresh summer smoothie which not only tastes great but also give me a good protein boost. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, just put in all ingredients listed below in a blender and mix for 1 minute.

  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter (home-made)
  • 3 slices melon
  • 1 peach
  • 1 banana
  • Chia seeds
  • Oats
  • 5 ice cubes
  • Grated ginger
  • 50g almonds
  • Maple Syrup
  • Water

* All ingredients above were bought off the counter without any plastic packaging.
