Healthy Raspberry Blueberry Smoothie
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 300ml (or 1¼ cup) non-fat yogurt
  • 1 medium-sized banana, peeled and quartered
  • 1 mandarin orange, peeled and segmented
  • 70g (or ⅔ of a cup) frozen blueberries
  • 70g (or ⅔ of a cup) frozen raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons of boiling water, optional
  1. To a 1-liter (or 1-quart) blender, add the yoghurt and the banana.
  2. Hold the mandarin segments against the light to check whether they have pips/seeds in them. If they do, use a sharp knife to make a little cut in the segment’s skin and push the seed out. Add the mandarin segments to the blender as well.
  3. Top with the berries and, if you like your smoothie cold but not too cold, add the boiling water.
  4. Blitz for about 1 minute, or until smooth. It’s a smoothie we’re making, after all… Divide over 2 glasses and serve immediately.
