Simple Fruit Smoothie

Fruit is a rich source of vitamins and minerals – not to mention the fact that it tastes great. Smoothies are one way to eat more fruit and they only take a few minutes to make. It’s also a fun way to get children interested in fruit and involved in the kitchen.

Serves 2


  • 2+ pieces of large fruit washed and peeled
  • ½ pot (62g) of low fat diet yoghurt (natural or flavoured)
  • 90 ml low fat milk
  • Optional: 4 ice cubes or 90 ml unsweetened fruit juice

If you don't want to include milk or yoghurt in your smoothie, just add more fruit instead!

Why not try out some of the following fruits:

  • Banana and Berry smoothie – add 80g of fresh or frozen berries and 1 banana
  • Strawberry smoothie – add 160g fresh or frozen strawberries
  • Pineapple smoothie – add 160g fresh or canned (stored in own juice) pineapple


    1. Make sure all the ingredients are chilled before use.
    2. Wash and peel fruit
    3. Blend fruit, yoghurt, milk and juice together using a hand held blender or a smoothie maker until creamy
    4. Add ice cubes and blend again
