After getting the go ahead to try out The Orchard at Tesco project for fresh berries and cherries I thought the best way to use the products in a health way was definitely a smoothie,
I suffer from poor physical health and lack of energy so had been advised by loads of people smoothies were the way forward as you can put in different types of fruit and vegetables and get loads of your 5 a day and also a get energy boost. Since doing the fresh berries and cherries project I have increased the amount of fruit I eat each day and of course I do feel a bit healthier and full up between breakfast and lunch.
Wash and check all fresh berries - discard any that look off as these can make the smoothie taste sour.
Place the raspberries and blueberries in a blender/ smoothie maker and add half the milk. Pulse to help break down the fruit to mix with the milk.
Once the fruit is mushed down add the remaining milk and the pot of yoghurt and continue blending until the mixture becomes smooth. Add the ice and blend again at the end if you like a thicker smoothie.
Pour and enjoy!
If only making for one, then the second smoothie can be kept in the fridge overnight, or placed in the freezer and made into an exciting frozen mousse type dessert.
Be creative with different fresh berries and different flavours of yoghurt to create healthy smoothies.
Add a touch of honey or sweetner if needed
