Jamie Oliver's Frozen Fruit Smoothies

Courtesy of Jamie Oliver
One of my favorite all time chef's is Jamie Oliver.   

He has a way of making everything wonderful. These smoothies can be adapted to your particular tastes.  Use the base of a banana, but I freeze the banana too.  While Jamie calls for natural yogurt,my favorite is goat yogurt, but for some that may be difficult to find.

Make Sure to Use Fruits in Season.

Stay healthy and use only local fruits in season.  My favorite and healthy nuts are almonds, walnuts and pistachios.

Jamie Oliver’s Frozen Fruit Smoothie
Makes 2
  • 1 ripe banana
    1 glass (about 8 oz.) frozen fruit
    2 heaping tbsp. natural yogurt
    1 small handful oats
    1 small handful mixed nuts
    1 glass (about 8 oz.) soy milk, skim milk or apple juice
    honey to taste, optional

1. Peel and slice your banana and put it into a blender with your frozen fruit and the yogurt.
2. Whiz it up and add the oats and nuts.
3. Add the soy milk, skim milk, or apple juice and whiz again, until nice and smooth. If it’s a bit too thick for you, just add a splash more milk or juice and whiz around again.
4. Give it a good stir, then have a taste. Rarely with a frozen fruit smoothie should you need to sweeten it, but if you think it needs a bit of extra sweetness you can add a little honey to taste—you won’t need much.
