Make a Smoothie

Click here to go straight to our recipes

To make a smoothie is easy - all you really need is some fruit and milk, yogurt and ice.

However you can experiment to your heart's content with the combination of fruits you choose.

Instead of milk or yogurt why not try using soya milk, goat's milk, coconut milk, ice cream or almond milk. In fact a smoothie is as exciting as your imagination wants to make it.

Most smoothies can be made in a blender; however if you want to use fresh orange, lemon, or grapefruit juice then it's best to invest in a citrus juicer as well.

If you want to eat your five a day but are struggling with this, either because it seems a lot or because you just don't like fruit, then a smoothie is a delicious way to do this.

A smoothie can be a meal in a glass which is good news for people who are looking to grab something which is a light, easily digested energy boost at breakfast or lunch time. Make a smoothie for dessert, the kids will just love it.
  • Use fresh fruit
  • Use fruit which is organic
  • Use fruit which has not been bruised or damaged
  • Wash fruit before using
Serve your smoothies immediately or at least within 20 minutes.

Serve Chilled
Smoothies are at their best when served chilled. This can be achieved by chilling the fruit, milk or other ingredients before you make a smoothie. It can also be achieved by adding ice cubes with the smoothie before blending.

Serve Straight Away
Serve your smoothies as soon as they are made. If a smoothie is left, the fruit could discolour and the liquid will separate. Although it won't spoil the taste of the smoothie it will however spoil the nutrient content and not look nearly as appetising.

If you feel there is not enough sweetness in your smoothie, perhaps because your fruit is not ripe, then add some runny honey.

Wash Your Blender
After you have made your smoothie it's so much easier to wash your blender if you do it straight away. Leave it at your peril because it can be hard work if the fruit and milk have dried.
