Yoghurt and Fruit Smoothies

Postby Fairie » Sat Oct 29, 2005 12:47 pm

200g Natural Yoghurt (I like the Vaalia Natural Low Fat)

100g Blueberries (Frozen Box Creative Gourmet) or 160g Mango

I like these 2 fruits as they are sweet enough and I don't need to add any sweetner, but you can use any fruit you like.

Put in blender with 1 cup of water and blend till smooth then add another 1/2 to 1 cup of water depending on how thick you like it.

I guess I'll be asking my family for a blender for Christmas.
Thanks for the healthful recipe Fairie.

Do you reckon this can be made into Frozen yoghurt?
Would be nice to have some in the freezer for when I am craving ice cream.

Hi Morgan, I guess if you want to eat it as an ice-cream you could always omit the water.
The natural fruit sugars would be a lot healthier than the shop yoghurts that put in chemical sweetners as their sugar substitute.

Mmm I'd be interested in trying the frozen yoghurt thing too. Will have to work on that.

i make fruit smoothies too (usually what i have for breakfast each day) and i've found that when u put the smoothie in the freezer for a couple of hours it turns into a sorbet sort of texture (more icy than frozen yoghurt) which is really yum! :lol:

my recipe is:

200g vanilla yoghurt (i use nestle french vanilla (the WW one) or yoplait no fat)
1/2 - 3/4 cup skim milk
5-10 frozen bluberries (the creative gourmet ones)
5-10 frozen raspberries (the creative gourmet ones)
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup pineapple juice (optional)
1/2 cup oats (optional.. e.g i add oats when i'm extra hungry at brekkie time - fills u up for way longer)

just chuck it all in the blender and blend for a minute or two.. when i'm freezing it i put it in one of those metal milkshake cups (they come with those breville milkshake makers, lol) cos it makes it freeze faster than if u used plastic or sumfn, and it stays extra cold whilst u eat it..

Hey Ash, I used the rasberries in the same brand you mentioned, for a smoothie and it had this really peculiar taste, (almost like a dirt/earthy taste) do you find that or do you think I may have just had a bad batch or something....

The smoothie recipe sounds really yummy, but I was just a bit dubious of buying the same ones again...please let me know if you have the same trouble. Thanks.

no, i can't say i've ever had that problem, lol.. did u try the raspberries on their own to see if they tasted odd? i love both raspberries and bluberries and i find the frozen ones are better (and cheaper!) than the fresh they sell at the supermarkets here..
