Berry and Banana Smoothie



Lets just put it out there; I love smoothies. I am always trying new recipes and ingredients at the weekend, and at the moment, I am loving drinking one in the morning before I go out as they are super refreshing, and super easy to just keep in the fridge and grab one when you want. I created a berry smoothie the other day, which I enjoyed so much I wanted to share the recipe with all of you to try if you want to!

Ingredients
Frozen Berries (I just used Sainsbury's basic)
1 ripe banana
Sprinkle of  brown sugar (optional)
Water to thin
Apple Juice to thin and add flavour (optional)

Just blend your berries with the water and the apple juice - I used apple juice to add flavor as well as thinning the smoothie down, but you could just use water - and add the banana in chunks, This gives the smoothie a slight sweet banana taste, but if you don't want the banana in your smoothie, just replace it with some other sweet fruit, or brown sugar. I added a sprinkle of demerara sugar, but it doesn't really make a difference! If you use raspberries, they make the smoothie very seedy, but you could just drain the seeds out if you don't like them.

Let me know if you try this recipe, and hope you enjoy!

  12. The smoothie looks wonderful! I didn't know adding apple juice to it might make it tastier as well. And the bottles where you put the smoothies with the straws are great, it makes such a beautiful presentation for the smoothies. :)
