The Goods X The Statement Life: Smoothies And Oodles of Zoodles Recipe

Sponsored by Ninja Kitchen
I love creating recipes with my friends, you can share different flavour combinations! Klarisa from thegoods and I have created the perfect Summer smoothie, 'The Statement' smoothie It's great for digestion, refreshing and filling. I also somehow managed to get her to share her most eaten noodle salad. You guys will love it!
We used the Nutri Ninja Blender to make our smoothie. We were able to extract the whole fruit and veg to drink all of the nutrients (I get so excited when I see the word whole fruit and veg = fibre). I love it, it's easy to use, powerful and great value - I even make Luna's purees with it!

Klarisa and I are excited to announce that 5 per cent of the 'The Statement' smoothie sold in December will be donated to Karinya House! This makes me sooo happy.
I am now so obsessed with The Goods zoodle salad! It's a great alternative to traditional pasta. Super healthy - lots of fibre, flavour-FUL and clean. I asked Klarisa super nicely (thank you for sharing) to share it with me and YOU so we could make it at home! 

Over to Klarisa to talk recipes...
I’m so excited to be sharing this recipe with you guys! It is one of my favourites and something we’ve had on the menu at The Goods since the very beginning. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s just soooo versatile - you can do absolutely anything with this pesto and the zoodles as well! I’ll often coat different veggies in the pesto, then lightly bake them, serve with a drizzle of pesto on top and voila you’ve got a beautiful side dish for dinner. The pesto lasts so well, just jar it up and it’ll keep for at least a week in the fridge, you can then bust it out as an addition to almost any dish.

Now the thing I love about zoodles it that they’re a great alternative to traditional pasta, but because it’s just raw zucchini you’re getting this fabulous vegetable hit as well. I serve this salad as a main meal with the addition of grilled proteins (chicken, salmon, steak, whatever you want!) or as a beautiful side dish. You can also substitute the tomatoes & olives for any of your other favourite vegetables. Sometimes I bake off diced sweet potato and add that in with some rocket leaves as well, completely transforming the dish!

Anyway, enough chat, here is the recipe. It may seem like a lot of ingredients but because you’re essentially just blitzing them all together (for the pesto) it comes together really quickly! Hope you enjoy! Klarisa x
