My Favourite Smoothies
Summer just began a few weeks ago and so far it has been wonderful with great temperatures, not too hot and not too cold. I love it!!!!
This summer I plan to make fifty different smoothies so watch this space. I shall keep on posting as I make and keep on drinking of course…..
Please note that bananas tend to oxidize and turn brown when exposed to air. It’s always important to add a citric juice like orange when making smoothies with bananas. The other alternative is to add 2-3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice. I found this smoothie really sweet, my daughter didn’t so I guess it’s not really sweet. I have reduced my sugar intake over the years so my palate is not used to SWEET…
Banana Cantaloupe Pineapple Smoothie
Preparation time: 5 minutes Serves: 3 x 280ml cups
- 1 cup fully-packed, diced cantaloupe
- 1 cup canned pineapple tidbits with juice
- 3 bananas, sliced (I used Dole)
- 1 cup orange juice
- Combine everything and blend till smooth. Serve.
- The smoothie was quite sweet so I didn’t add sugar
Point to Note
I always refrain from adding sugar to smoothies. If you want it sweeter, add whatever sweetener you prefer.
