Frozen Smoothie Time
Boost your fruit intake with this ice cold smoothie recipe. Whether you go for strawberry and banana or melon and mandarin, these smoothies are a must try!
Smoothies have taken the world by storm, competing with designer drinks such as the mochaccino or skinny soya latte. But while some smoothies are dairy-based, we prefer to keep the cows at bay and stick to purely fruity options. Here are some of our favourites, so have a go at these and then experiment with some of your own ideas. Get blitzing!
|150g||your fruit of choice|
|1||strawberry and banana|
|2||pineapple and mango|
|3||melon and mandarin|
|4||apple, pear, blueberry and blackberry|
You will need a blender.
WASH or peel your chosen fruits.
CHOP them up into small regular-shaped pieces, ideally the size of a raspberry.
LAY them out on a tray and freeze. If you’ve got more than you need and you want to be organised, store 150g batches in the freezer until needed.
POUR the apple juice into a blender and tip in 150g of the frozen fruit that takes your fancy.
BLITZ for 30 seconds, until your ice-cold fruit smoothie is lump-free and thick.
EMPTY into a glass and slurp through a straw.
You can also buy frozen fruit pre-prepared at some supermarkets. Just add fruit juice, blitz it and Bob’s your uncle.
