Ingredients (serves 2)
1 Small Banana
½ Cup of Berries e.g. Raspberries or
175ml Semi Skimmed Milk (chilled)
100ml Fruit Juice
1. Peel and slice the banana.
2. Place all ingredients in a blender,
liquidiser or smoothie maker.
3. Blend till smooth, serve immediately.
Experiment with a combination of fruit to your taste
Recommended to include bananas as this prevents the mixture from splitting
or having a curdling appearance
Natural yoghurt may be added for a creamier effect
Avoid adding ice cream as this will be adding extra calories
Smoothies are not recommended as a snack and should be consumed as
part of a meal – see oral health section
Smoothies count as only one of your 5 portions of fruit and vegetables
regardless of the quantity of fruit you include, this is due to the blending
process removing a lot of the fibre
