Smoothies

For my birthday in 2012, I got a blender from my parents. I wanted one, because I wanted to make smoothies. Well, I did this a number of times during the summer (my birthday is in June) and then gave up. Until last Friday that is, when the idea popped into my head again. I bought some ingredients and on Saturday, made quite a delicious smoothie. Well, a nurse ended up doing most of the work, even the things I could do myself. Then yesterday, I made another smoothie myself. Both of these recipes are really easy. I noticed most people say prep time is only five minutes for smoothies, but I took a bit longer.

Banan-orange-kiwifruit smoothie

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 banana

  • 2 kiwi fruits

  • 1/2 orange

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup yoghurt


Throw all ingredients into the blender and blend till smooth.

Pear-kiwifruit smoothie with fresh mint

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 2 kiwi fruits

  • 2 pears

  • A bit of fresh mint (I used only 3 leaves)

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup yoghurt


Again, put everything into the blender and blend till smooth.

Being that I still have a lot of fresh mint left, I think I’m going to make tea out of this. Speaking of which, the idea of making my own herbal teas popped into my mind. I haven’t tried this yet, but when I have, will sure share a recipe.

  1. I could go for a smoothie right now. It would really go well with the too many pancakes I had for dinner 🙂 I love smoothies and yours sounds really yummy!

  2. I love smoothies! Since I destroyed my old plastic blender (by *trying* to crash frozen strawberries there) I can’t make any decent smoothies any more ;-(

  3. I’d love to get a smoothie maker! I always love to do banana, strawberry and a dollop of yoghurt for summer, but I would go crazy if I had a proper machine! x
