Packed with brain-friendly antioxidants, prebiotic carbohydrates and probiotic bacteria, this smoothie is a filling breakfast or an energizing midday snack. This simple recipe works well with any type of berry.
If you prefer your smoothies on the thicker side, add a few more strawberries, or increase the proportion of yogurt to milk.
This soothing drink is ideal when you’re feeling under the weather or just wanting a caffeine-free alternative to tea or coffee. Serve it warm or hot, and double the ginger for a spicier version.
This refreshing smoothie is great for a hot summer day – it's perfect for drinking poolside. I refrigerate the melon for a few hours before making it so the smoothie is nice and cold.
If you don't have blueberries on hand, strawberries work equally well.
You can substitute any 100% unsweetened fruit juice for the orange juice in this recipe. Pomegranate juice works especially well, and gives the smoothie a deep crimson colour.
Ground flaxseeds give this smoothie a slightly nutty flavour and a boost of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
My taste testers loved this delicious vitamin C-rich smoothie! You can't go wrong with the combination of strawberries, kiwifruit and mango juice. One serving of this smoothie contains more than twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin C!
Fresh ginger gives this smoothie a refreshing and delicious taste - my taste-testers couldn't seem to get enough of it! I prefer to use freshly squeezed orange juice, but it's not necessary.
Ground flaxseed adds a boost of fibre to this antioxidant-rich smoothie. If you prefer your smoothies on the thinner side, add ¼ cup (50 ml) skim milk or low-fat soy milk. Or, add a few ice cubes before you puree.
