Jamie Oliver’s Frozen Fruit Smoothie
1 ripe banana
1 glass (about 8 oz.) frozen fruit
2 heaping tbsp. natural yogurt
1 small handful oats
1 small handful mixed nuts
1 glass (about 8 oz.) soy milk, skim milk or apple juice
honey to taste, optional
1. Peel and slice your banana and put it into a blender with your frozen fruit and the yogurt.
2. Whiz it up and add the oats and nuts.
3. Add the soy milk, skim milk, or apple juice and whiz again, until nice and smooth. If it’s a bit too thick for you, just add a splash more milk or juice and whiz around again.
4. Give it a good stir, then have a taste. Rarely with a frozen fruit smoothie should you need to sweeten it, but if you think it needs a bit of extra sweetness you can add a little honey to taste—you won’t need much.
