I was thinking about fruit tonite and how much I love smoothies this time of the year in Florida, it’s so hot here and humid so a cold smoothie calms down not only my internal temperature but my mood too. And, if I’m going to indulge on a cookie or bun, washing it down with a glass of banana or strawberry smoothie is the perfect end to a lovely snack. Keep reading for the recipes for all three of my favorites: Banana, Strawberry, and Kiwi.

Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup or 6 large fresh strawberries
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
4 ice cubes

To create this strawberry smoothie recipe put all the ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Serves 2.

Banana Smoothie
1/4 cup orange juice
4 bananas
3 scoops of plain ice-cream
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
3 tablespoons of plain yoghurt
Lemon juice (optional)
Sugar (optional)

Cut the bananas into small pieces and put in the blender. Add all the other ingredients. Blend on full for 20 seconds. Put lemon juice around the rim of the glasses then roll the rim in the sugar so it sticks to the lemon juice. Serve immediately. Serves 3.

Kiwi Cream Smoothie
2 kiwi’s, peeled
6 tbsp natural yogurt
1 tsp honey

To make this quick free kiwi cream smoothie recipe, peel kiwi fruit and pop into blender, add the natural yogurt and honey. Mix for 35 – 40 seconds and serve at once to enjoy the full benefit. 

Serves 2.
