Im into Smoothies at the moment as they are little more nicer than straight juicing and better than having the normal fry up for breakfast. Ocean Spray sent me some great recipes that I am loving at the moment:
225ml (8 fl oz) Ocean Spray® Chilled Cranberry Original juice drink
12-15 raspberries, fresh or frozen
4 medium strawberries, hulls removed and cut into halves
1/2 cup crushed ice
- Put all ingredients, except garnish, into a blender.
- Blend for a few seconds on high speed or until ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Pour into a large glass.
Cranberry, Cherry and Mango Smoothie
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
200g frozen pitted cherries or summer berry mix
200g frozen cubed mango or exotic fruit mix
300ml Ocean Spray® Cranberry & Cherry juice drink
1 x 150g carton Greek-style vanilla yogurt
Fresh cherries and/or mango slices to garnish – optional
Combine all smoothie ingredients in a blender. Blend at high speed, until smooth (15 to 20 seconds).
Pour into glasses and garnish with a fresh cherry and/or mango slice as desired. Refrigerate or freeze any leftover smoothie mixture.
Blueberry and Orange Smoothie
Takes: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 glasses
200ml Ocean Spray® Blueberry juice drink
Juice of 1 fresh orange
100g fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
3 tbsp low fat natural yogurt
Manuka honey, to taste
Place all the ingredients, except the honey, into a blender. Whiz until smooth. Add honey to taste and serve over ice.
Top Tip: For a richer, creamier smoothie add a scoop of ice cream or frozen yoghurt to the blender.
