Tips for a delicious smoothie

  • Make sure to wash your hands with soap and water before you start making your smoothie.
  • Don't worry if you don't have a blender, you can still make a delicious smoothie with soft fruits such as kiwi, mango, raspberries, bananas and plenty more. Simply mash up your soft fruits with the back of a fork or press through a sieve with a wooden spoon, then mix in the yogurt and milk with a spoon or whisk.
  • We recommend using natural low fat yogurt without any added sugar for an extra healthy and tasty smoothie.
  • Dairy-free yogurt alternatives are available in supermarkets as well as dairy-free milk alternatives if you can’t have dairy.


  • Frozen fruit works just as well as fresh fruit, just don't forget to take it out of the freezer a couple of hours before you make your smoothie if you're planning on using a fork or whisk instead of a blender.
  • If you don't have a straw or if you prefer a thicker smoothie, you can eat it from a bowl with a spoon instead of drinking it. Smoothie bowls can also be decorated with your favourite fruit or low sugar cereals.
  • For a delicious healthy ice cream alternative, try putting your smoothie in the freezer!
