Summer berry smoothie

Three amazing summer berry smoothies

Make the most of berry season with smoothies that are quick and easy to make, healthy and super tasty


They may be little but the likes of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries pack a big nutritional punch. They’re also low in calories and fat.

Most importantly of all, they’re delicious, and, right now they’re in season which means they’re at their best and their cheapest.

That doesn’t mean to say that you can’t enjoy these smoothies all year long though (because, believe us, once you’ve tried them you’ll be hooked!). In fact, frozen berries are a thrifty, year-round choice.

Low fat berry loveliness

This smoothie tastes like an indulgent treat but is actually low in calories and fat. What’s not to love?

Ingredients: ½ a banana, 6 strawberries or a small handful of mixed berries, ½ a glass of water, a few mint leaves (optional).

Method: Blitz all the ingredients until combined, adding a few ice cubes if you want your smoothie super-chilled (or just use frozen berries).

This smoothie can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 12 hours but it's best drunk straight away.

The breakfast berry smoothie

This is one of those smoothies that satisfies your hunger and keeps you going from breakfast till lunchtime. Plus, you’ve got the added health benefits of oats which are rich in a specific type of fibre called beta-glucan which helps to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol.

Ingredients: a handful of blueberries or berries of your choice, a handful of oats, ½ a banana, ½ a glass of skimmed milk, a drizzle of honey (to taste).

Method: Blitz all the ingredients until combined. Enjoy straight away.

The refreshing smoothie

This smoothie will keep you cool and refreshed on warm summer days. We used Gala melon but any variety of melon will work.

Ingredients: ½ a Gala melon, 6-8 raspberries or a small handful of mixed berries, 1 apple, peeled and cored, ½ a glass of water.

Method: Blitz all the ingredients until combined. This healthy smoothie can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 12 hours but it's best drunk straight away.

Hi what's the best smoothie to have as I have cancer and been told to try them but I can not have solid foods

I'm new to all things smoothy, so am just trying things out. I have made a couple of delicious (I think so) smoothies full of goodness. Method was same for both. Place Mango, Papaya, pineapple, apple, (or mixed berries) in 500ml glass. This mix is very thick so I added some apple & mango (or orange) juice. Pour into jug & blitzed with my hand held blitzer. I added the spinach as I went along. Then when right consistency pour back into glass Yummy!
