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.

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.

Fruit Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

  • One half banana, chopped
  • One half kiwi fruit, skin removed
  • Small handful frozen mixed berries
  • 100ml fresh apple juice, not from concentrate

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!

Variations

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.
