Food Monday ~ Smoothies

Mango, Banana and Orange Juice
Makes 2-3 glasses

This smoothie is filling and fibre-rich, but you have to drink it more or less straight away, as the bananas and mangoes will give the drink a sludgy grey colour in quite a short time.

1 large mango, peeled, stone removed and sliced
2 bananas, peeled
300ml orange juice

Blend all the ingredients until smooth.   Serve immediately.


Banana Smoothie
Serves 1

1 ripe banana
½ cup non-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
1 cup crushed ice
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
lime wedge or banana slice, for garnish

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the smoothie into a large glass and garnish with a lime wedge or banana slice.


Tropical Fruit Smoothie
Serves 2

1 frozen banana
1 cup fresh pineapple
¾ cup soymilk
1 tablespoon honey or sugar (optional)

Blend all of the above ingredients in a food processor or blender for 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
