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.

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.
