Made cold, they can be very refreshing (and are a lot healthier than soft drinks and energy drinks!) and I’d prefer one to an eggnog any day 🙂
If making one for a baby or toddler, it can effectively be their meal and you can add a bit of formula powder to add nutrients if you feel the need (personally, I think adding some banana is enough to give then plenty of vitamins and minerals).
A Christmas fruit smoothie
6 – 12 strawberries
2 kiwi fruit
sprinkle of cinnamon
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yoghurt (fruit yoghurt tastes nice but adds sugar)
500 ml milk
Put everything into a jug and use a blender to mash and mix it up.
Pour into two cups (or more smaller serves for kids) and drink.
Put bananas, yoghurt, cinnamon and milk into a jug and blend.
Add strawberries and kiwi fruit blend on a low-speed but leave some small pieces of fruit (to show the Christmassy red and green 🙂 ).
Pour into cups and serve.
