Who says you can’t have a smoothie in autumn? I have put together some recipes of my favourite fruity smoothies to make at home and hopefully it will give you some ideas next time you need a quick recipe that uses up lots of fruit.
I use a NutriBullet to make my smoothies but of course any blender should work.
The classic strawberry and banana smoothie: an easy but always delicious choice.
-1 large handful of strawberries, with the leaves cut off
-1/2 of a banana
-2 tablespoons of Greek style yoghurt
The most refreshing smoothie; it is more like an icy slush and requires very few ingredients.
-2 slices honeydew melon
-1 handful of ice cubes
THE GREEN ONE
The healthiest choice (and one of the tastiest); the spinach is packed with lots of vitamins and minerals while the fruit and cucumber make the smoothie cooling and zingy.
-1/2 an apple
-1/2 a kiwi
-a few cucumber slices
-1 small handful of frozen spinach
An exotic smoothie for when you’re feeling tropical!
-1 large handful of frozen mango chunks
-a sprinkle of frozen berries (to enhance the orange colour)
-2 tablespoons Greek style yoghurt
Switch on your blender and get smoothie making! (Disclaimer: switch on your blender once the fruit is inside, lol.)
