Fresh smoothies

Perfect for the summer

26. July 2017

Smoothies are colourful, delicious and packed full of vitamins and can be made quickly using any good blender. Suitable ingredients to use include many types of fruit and vegetables as well as milk, yoghurt and even some types of nuts and seeds.

1. By blending green vegetables into the fruit smoothie, the fructose content can be kept in check.

2. Many kinds of fruit and vegetables should be blended with their skin, if possible. Valuable minerals and vitamins often lie just under the skin. Don’t forget to clean the skin thoroughly, however, before use.

3. Frozen ingredients often contain more vitamins than improperly stored fruit and vegetables off the supermarket shelf. They are also easier to portion and can be used even if they are out of season.

4. Smoothies should be enjoyed soon after they have been prepared since many of their ingredients are sensitive to light or to contact with the air.
