Pokémon Starters – Squirtle Smoothie

All of this sound like a little too much work? Yeah I know what you mean so why not take things down a notch with Squirtle! Go easy and chill out with one of these super cool blueberry smoothies and spend your time doing the things you love!


Very Easy


10 minutes


One chopped banana, one teaspoon of honey, 80g blueberries, 20g raspberries, 250ml tropical juice, 4 ice-cubes


You’re going to need a smoothie maker or have a Machamp on hand to crush and mash all your ingredients together for you! This is as easy as pie to make!

You’ll just throw all of your ingredients into the smoothie maker, no particular order and blitz it all together. No there isn’t really much else to do except pour it into a glass and enjoy! Seriously, Squirtle Smoothies are all chill!

I have a few tips for you though, if you like thick and creamy smoothies then freeze your bananas too! Peel and chop them the night before you need them and place them in the freezer! Guaranteed thicker smoothies every time! If you’d prefer a lighter smoothie, only use half of the banana and add a little more juice and ice cubes.

These smoothies are a fantastic way to kick start your day, they’re filling but they’re not heavy because there’s no dairy in them. I add in a tablespoon of linseed and grains to give it an even healthier boost. These are ideal for breakfast or as a midday/late evening snack to help beat those sugar cravings.


Need something with a bit more of a punch why not try our Charmander Soup?
Why not take a leaf out of Bulbasaur’s lifestyle and relax with this leaf green salad?

3Pokémon Starters - Bulbasaur Salad

This green salad packs a serious punch with a zesty dressing! Packed full of iron and vitamins, you can add other greens or vegetables to suit your taste or take out what you don’t like! A handy and healthy snack, this makes a great lunch served with a toasted sesame seed bagel or bulk up your portion and add some cooked fusilli pasta for dinner!




20 minutes


Salad: Mixed salad leaves (lettuce, rocket, water cress, spinach) 3 sticks of celery, 5 radishes, half a cucumber, one spring onion, one small head of broccoli. Mixed seeds and grains.
Dressing: 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, a tablespoon of fresh squeezed ginger juice, juice of half a lemon, tablespoon of dark soy sauce.


If you can’t make salad then you can’t train Pokémon! This Bulbasaur salad is ideal for anyone inexperience in the kitchen; you’ll only need a sharp knife, a big bowl to serve and a sealable container for your dressing.

Start by tossing your salad leaves together, then chop your vegetables. I like to cut my cucumber and radish into thin round slices and chop the celery into chunks. Slice the spring onion into small pieces and chop the stalk off your broccoli. Chop the rest of it into small florets and then toss the veg into the salad leaves.

For the dressing measure out your liquids, I added a dash of cracked black pepper to give a small kick to it (it really doesn’t need any extra kicking!). Combine all of it together in the sealable container, I used a small lunch box container, then shake the living daylights out of it. Pop it in the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes.

Drizzle as much as you want over your salad and serve. For lunch I accompanied my Bulbasaur salad with a bagel and garnished it with a handful of mixed seeds and grains.
