Blog Link Party with Super Smoothie Ideas

Nothing compliments a hot summer’s day better than a refreshing fruity smoothie. Not only are smoothies delicious and hydrating, but when made with fresh fruit and yoghurt they make a super healthy and vitamin-packed beverage too.

Of course, you can make smoothies a little more indulgent by adding some ice cream, melted chocolate or cream into the blender;. They make lovely treats for when your pals come over to play some; or enjoy a barbecue party. So if you’re in need of some smoothie ideas, here are a few suggestions for you to try out.

A delicious fruity smoothie

Banana Bonanza

Bananas are packed with potassium and healthy fats. They release their energy slowly so you’ll feel satisfied for hours. For an indulgent smoothie, take a food processor and blitz your banana with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, several ice cubes, a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of peanut butter or malted chocolate powder. Alternatively, give your smoothie an exotic Caribbean; twist by whizzing your banana with a small pot of mango yoghurt, half an avocado, reduced fat coconut milk and a few ice cubes.

Berry Blast

For something a little more refreshing and light, try a zingy berry blast smoothie. You can either use frozen or fresh berries for this recipe, depending on your preferences. In a food processor, blitz two cups of berries (we recommend strawberries. blueberries and blackcurrants) with some ice cubes and some red grape juice. A squeeze of lemon juice will give it a refreshing and tangy taste. Once you have blended the berries together, strain the smoothie through a sieve; to rid it of any seeds and pulp. Remember, if you’re using frozen berries, you do not need to add any ice cubes into the smoothie mix.

Adding a punnet of fresh strawberries to your smoothie packs in plenty of vitamins and makes your smoothie taste even fresher and sweeter.
