When it is the middle of summer, all we want are cold drinks. But trying to avoid the sugar filled sodas and carbonated drinks, means going to the fresh and natural. Bottled fruit juices are full of added sugar – just what we don’t need in our diets! So we came up with this wonderful fruit smoothie – all natural and yummy.Filling too!
Any fruit that you like – fresh only ( not canned – too much sugar) cut into pieces that will fit into your blender – no pits, skins or peels e.g. peaches, plums, pears, nectarines, bananas, berries of all kinds ( blueberries and blackberries will make the color of the drink darker but taste yummy) oranges, tangerines etc.
Preparation time: 10 minutes plus an hour or two for refrigeration of the fruit
Cooking time: None
- Place the chilled pieces of fruit into the blender and whiz away until its as smooth as you like it
- No need for ice cream or milk – great for those who are lactose intolerant – and also keeps the calorie count down without losing any flavor
- Put the unused smoothie into the fridge and whiz it once before serving at a later stage since the liquid and fruit will separate.
