Nutrition Night Smoothie

 

Apple, Banana & Grape Smoothie -

 

1- banana                          (if you like banana flavour  1 1/2 bananas = 1 1/2 apples)

2 Apples (average size)

About 20-30 grapes

RED Grape Juice  (Use only red - as it looks disgusting otherwise) 

Apple Juice

Dash of Lemon Juice

Spoon of Honey if desired.

 

Chop and Blend all fruits and lemon juice (honey if desired leave till later) top up with 50/50 Grape/apple juice to desired consistency  (from the above I usually make it up to 1 Litre).

 

This recipe is good as you change the liquid top up as you want eg more grape less apple or all grape etc. (if putting in some milk or yoghurt leave out the lemon juice and apple juice and keep very cool).

 

You can add Wheatgerm or grain to this.

 

 Obviously with this one is easy to swap fruits another good one is pineapple instead of apple for the fruit (1 large tin drained).  Can swap grapes for raspberries, strawberries endless options to change with little thought.
