Let’s just put it out there: smoothies can be amazingly delicious or TERRIBLE. When you buy a smoothie it seems simple. ‘It’s just fruit, right? Yeah, I can totally make that.’ No, no. It’s not. I’ve found out that there are some very bad combinations that can be made. Now that I’ve figured out this recipe (which actually works and is super-refreshing) I don’t need to keep trying weird combos and subjecting my poor taste buds to my crazy experiments. The secret is in the apple juice: it provides the liquid to let the mixture blend properly, and also sweetens it so that you don’t need to add any sugar.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 banana, peeled
1 tablespoon chia seeds, (optional)
125ml cloudy apple juice
handful ice
handful raspberries
or handful blackberries
or handful grapes

Method

  1. Blitz all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.
  2. For easy morning prep, place the berries, chopped banana and chia seeds in a sandwich bag and freeze. That way you just have to blend the contents of the sandwich bag with the apple juice and ice for a really quick breakfast.

Note:

  • You can blend in a handful of spinach leaves with the other smoothie ingredients if you’re looking for a nutritional boost. It doesn’t change the flavour at all but will add some iron and more fibre.
