Ingredients (serves 2)

1 Small Banana

½ Cup of Berries e.g. Raspberries or Strawberries

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
