10 Easy Smoothie Recipes To Make in 5 minutes or Less.

Oh Smoothies!, This is probably the happiest I’ve ever been to write a post, Can’t believe it took us this long to talk about the single greatest drink that ever lived–Smoothies!. A Smoothie is essentially, a drink made from mixing pure raw fruit and/or vegetables, typically using a blender. It has various physical benefits such as improving bone health, enhancing immunity, detoxifying the body, improving the skin and helping to lose weight. Honestly, the benefits of smoothies surpass human imagination, and even deserve it’s own post which I’d get to some day, but right now, we need to focus on easy recipes anyone can make, anywhere and anytime.

STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE

Tips: Personally, I recommend using frozen fruits over fresh fruits with ice, either way works perfectly though. Also, when the recipe says Ice, we mean crushed over cubed, which is easier for a blender to break up. Never cubed ice for your smoothies please!

P.S. The quantity of ingredients depends on the number of people yearning to taste your amazing smoothie.

2. TRIPLE BERRY BLEND SMOOTHIE

Ingredients: 1 cup of mixed blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of Greek yoghurt, 1 cup of ice.

Toppings: Strawberry fruit, Blueberry, or Kiwi fruit.

Steps:

  1. Pour the cup of milk into the blender.
  2. Pour the cup of Greek yoghurt into the blender.
  3. Add the cup of mixed berries to the blender.
  4. Pour your cup of ice.
  5. Blend for 30 seconds.
  6. Pour into your cup and Top with Strawberry/ Kiwi fruit.
  7. Serve chilled.

P.S. Always add the liquid first. This lubricates the blender blade and keeps the solids moving. A liquid barrier also keeps the blender from overheating and reduces the noise of the blade as it goes to work.
