Favourite Smoothie Base

Ingredients for two servings:

75g fresh or frozen raspberries
200ml yoghurt
1 banana
1 pkt of vanilla sugar
1-2 tsp grated ginger
juice of 2 oranges – about a glass
1 tsp almond butter
2-3 tbsp oats (optional)

Method:
Just put all the ingredients in a blender, mix until smooth and drink immediately!

Variations:

* Experiment with different fruit combinations – instead of raspberries, why not use strawberries or a mixture of re fruit? Ripe mangoes, peaches and nectarines are great choices too

* Instead of yoghurt and/or orange juice, use oat or almond milk

* If you’re not a fan of almond butter, try peanut, walnut, cashew, brazil or macademia nut butter.

* Instead of ginger, play around with other spices such as cinnamon, cardamom or nutmeg

  1. I love ginger-flavored just about anything. And if I saw those fruits in a market with that kind of charm, it would entice me to make a smoothie! My daughter likes them. I make them for her with ice.
