Orange Boo Smoothie Recipe🍊👻

The frozen banana is the genius part of this recipe. It adds a brilliant creamy texture to the smoothie without having an overpowering taste of banana. The combination of vanilla and orange is reminiscent of the iconic ice pop the ‘Super Split’. To really amp up the flavour the orange zest or orange blossom are great in this Halloween smoothie. The only thing you will need is some food colouring to really boost the flavour and have it looking that vibrant spooky orange colour. This smooth, creamy, orange smoothie is an unusual twist on a smoothie but one you are sure to love.

ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 250 mls orange juice
  • 250g pot of vanilla yogurt  / orange yogurt
  • 1 tsp orange blossom / zest half orange
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • drop of yellow and orange food colouring
  • Optional: 1 orange peeled and chopped up

method

  • Freeze the banana for a few hours before you need it. Weigh out the ingredients and pop them in the blender. Blitz, pour and serve.

  • 300ml-400ml milk

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

method

  • Add the bananas,cocoa powder, oats, seeds, peanut butter and 300ml milk and blend for at least 30 seconds, until completely smooth. If it is is too thick, add some more milk and blend again. Pour into two glasses and serve with a straw.

Mango, Passion fruit and Orange Smoothie Recipe🥭🍊

This was my first time to ever buy passion fruit so I had to look up how it is eaten. To eat a passion fruit raw, it is cut in half and a spoon is used to remove the pulp and seeds. The pulp and seeds are edible, the rind is not. Smoothies taste better slightly chilled, so always add a handful of ice to the mix.

ingredients

1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into pieces

2 passion fruit, flesh scooped out

1 orange, peeled and cut into pieces

2 bananas, peeled and cut into pieces

method

  • Put the fruit in a blender and top up with 150ml water and a handful of ice. Whizz for about 1 minute until smooth, then pour into glasses and serve. This recipe serves 2.
