Low Fat Low Calorie Exotic Smoothies
A couple of years ago i wrote a hub about low fat low calorie smoothies and how to make them,after experiencing them on my travels around Australia,well the hub was so successful that i have decided to do a follow up hub, but this time i have tried experimenting at home and have gone with my usual wild abandonment and made some quite outlandish smoothies,or as i like to call them EXOTIC.As i have said before and still stick to, these are a great way to eat fresh fruit if like me you are not a fruit lover,the only fruit i can manage is an apple and even then i don't particularly enjoy it,so with a smoothie i get to try lots of different fruits and you know what, most of the time i like the flavours,I'm not one for breakfast either so if i make one of these smoothies and leave it in the fridge overnight it is perfect fro when im running out of the door on the way to work.Below i will include some of my exotic recipes i have made and let you give them a go,feedback would be excellent.
This one was a surprise to me as i hate any kind of berries but my wife had some and i was feeling crazy so just popped a few blueberrys into the blender (Approx 7oz) along with 7fl oz of apple juice, 4 fl oz of natural yoghurt and one banana,blend it all up and hey presto you have yourself a Blueberry Sparkler.
6fl oz apple juice
4fl oz natural yoghurt
1 banana sliced
Forest Fruit Smoothie
The forest fruit smoothie seemed like a good idea at the time as it got quite a lot of fruit down me in one go and as i have said i don't like fruit,however it did mean buying frozen forest fruits such as blueberries,raspberries and blackberries.
13fl oz of orange juice
1lb of frozen forest fruits
Blend and serve with fresh strawberries
I'm sorry but i didn't like this one,that's not to say that you guys wont,I'm just not a lover of coconut in any form,don't ask me why i tried.
12 fl oz of pineapple juice
4 fl oz of coconut cream
5oz frozen pineapple chunks
My favourite out of all the exotic smoothies i made the sugar and lemon give it a real zingy twist which i loved especially on a hot summers day.
Juice of one lemon
3fl oz of water
4 tbsp of sugar
6fl oz of natural yoghurt
3 oz of frozen pineapple chunks
