If you've never made a fruit smoothie before or you are just looking for easy fruit smoothie recipes, then let me show you how to make a one that is healthy, easy, and quick. This is a very simple recipe where mixed berries are the main flavor. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a mixed berry smoothie as there are other fruits included in the recipe too.

Smoothies are real easy to make and will give you several helpings of fruit in one delicious drink. I used to make mine for breakfast but I now find I get more benefit when I make them at around lunchtime or even late afternoon. The vitamins and nutrients give me a real boost just when I'm starting to need it. Much better than sugary snacks or coffee.

This recipe shows you how to make a smoothie with frozen fruit. The reason I include frozen fruit in my recipe is to make it quicker to prepare and also because frozen fruit can be stored longer than fresh. If you replace the frozen stuff with fresh, then you have a fresh smoothie, and it will likely taste just as good. I should point out here that the only frozen fruit I use are frozen berries. The rest I use fresh, as you will see. So let's take a look at how to make a fruit smoothie and the ingredients needed.

The one shown in the picture below is the type that I would recommend. With these ones you normally get a bunch of different cup sizes and one or 2 lids. The beauty with these is that the blades are embedded in the lid. So all you need to do is fill your cup with ingredients, attach the lid and then click into place on the base and it will blend in your cup. No need to wash out big jugs and spouts and things like that. Just blend and go!

Fruit Smoothie Recipe Instructions

  1. Place the frozen berries, chopped banana and kiwi fruit into a smoothie maker or blender.
  2. Add approximately 100ml of fresh Apple Juice and whizz for about 30 seconds, stopping to shake about half way through to make sure all the fruit smoothie ingredients get blended.
  3. Check thickness. If it's too thick add in some more apple juice and blend for a further 5 seconds.
  4. Pour into a glass and drink!

Nutritional Benefits

Berries, such as blackberries, raspberries and strawberries include high levels of vitamain C, vitamin K and are also an excellent source of dietary fibre.

Bananas are known for their excellent potassium content which helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure level and is useful in maintaining the right balance of acid levels in the body, especially in the gut. Bananas are also a good source of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fibre.

The pure apple juice (not from concentrate) will provide you with high levels of vitamin and is also known for containing important phytonutrients which can help fight destructive diseases such as cancer, asthma, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Kiwi fruit is another ingredient in this homemade smoothie that packs a high vitamin C content and is good for digestion as it is another good source of dietary fibre. Kiwis are also a good source of the B-vitamin, folate which is good for cellular health.

Variations of Fresh Fruit Smoothie Recipes

This recipe tastes great, but it's very easy to alter it depending on what ingredients you have in your kitchen. Or it might just be that you fancy a yoghurt fruit smoothie. In which case, you would reduce the amount of apple juice, and replace with yoghurt. It might be that you don't like the idea of making your smoothie with frozen fruit. If that's the case, simply substitute the frozen mixed berries for fresh ones, and the result is essentially the same.

The fruit smoothie recipe that I've provided in this article gives the nutrition set out in the table. However, if you don't use fresh squeezed apple juice, then the nutritional value will decrease. The fresh-squeezed apple juice is an important healthy element to this recipe.

So now you know how to make a fruit smoothie by following my delicious recipe. But don't stop there. Have a look at other recipes. And be creative - there's loads of fruit that's perfect for these tasty, healthy beverages. I really like the combination of mango and banana.

        Thanks Maryjale! It's my favourite - although I say that as I'm drinking a mango and banana smoothie that I just made. Cheers

        Many thanks for stopping by Brakel2 and for your kind words. I would use ice cubes in some smoothie recipes but in this one I use frozen berries so don't feel the need for ice cubes too. I've also never tried using a juicer. I just stick to my trusty blender that I bought second hand years and years ago! Thanks again. Matt

        These sound like very tasty smoothies. My husband and I love any kind of smoothie. We use ice cubes in our smoothies, even though most people do not. We cannot decide whether a blender or a juicer is better. I voted your recipe with 5 stars and as useful. It has been my pleasure to visit your hub and to meet a new person to me, anyway, on the site. I also posted it to facebook. Thanks for sharing.
