Smoothies by Liz Franklin

Smoothies are thick and fruity and chock-full of vitamins – a meal in a glass, in fact. There are so many delicious flavour combinations; the list is endless

For 2 glasses


Strawberry and mango smoothie

  • 1 large, ripe mango
  • 250g (9oz) strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • 250ml (9 fl oz) cold semi-skimmed milk
  • Extra strawberries for garnishing

Orange, papaya and pineapple smoothie

  • 1 large, ripe papaya (paw paw)
  • 2 thick slices from a medium ripe pineapple
  • 300ml (½ pint) orange juice (freshly squeezed if possible)
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Ice cubes


The way to create the superlative Smoothie is to make sure that you use the ripest fruit possible. When a fruit ripens its natural sweetness intensifies. For instance, a squidgy, black-skinned banana whizzed up with a glass of ice-cold milk will make a glorious, naturally sweet milkshake, packed with banana flavour. On the other hand, choose an unripe banana, and you have a drink that tastes of nothing.

Strawberry and mango smoothie

  • Place the fruit in a blender, Smoothie Maker or use the Bamix De Luxe and whiz until smooth. Add the yoghurt and milk and whiz again. Pour into glasses, garnish with a strawberry and serve immediately.

Orange, papaya and pineapple smoothie

  • Peel and deseed the papaya. Chop the flesh and place it into a blender, food processor or Smoothie Maker. Peel the pineapple, chop the flesh and add this as well. Add the orange juice, a squeeze of lime juice and a few ice cubes. Whiz everything until smooth and serve immediately.
