The strawberry grapefruit juice smoothie is an amazing fruit smoothie that will also work great in your dieet.

I drink a glass of grapefruit juice almost every morning. Grapefruit contains a lot of vitamins and dietary fibers and you really feel a whole lot better during the day.

  • ¾ cup grapefruit juice (180 ml)
  • 1 cup fat free yogurt (240 ml)

  1. Make the grapefruit juice. You will need one grapefruit for about ¾ cup of grapefruit juice.
  2. Peel the banana and break it in big chunks.
  3. Toss all the ingredients in your blender and blend till smooth.

Is that baby pineapple for real!!? :) Yes it is, and it comes from South Africa. It tastes just the same a normal pineapple, but looks pretty good for the picture.

I made my pineapple strawberry smoothie with fresh orange juice, but you can easily use orange juice from a pack.

I used two superfood supplements for this fruit smoothie; flax seed and cinnamon. Flax seed is perfect for your dieet, because it contains a lot of dietary fibers.
Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the bark of several trees and is a product that is reported since 2000 BC in China and ancient Egypt. In the past cinnamon has been used as a traditional medicine for many cures, but its effects has not been proven by nowadays science.

  • 1 cup Frozen strawberries (150 gram)
  • 1 cup Fat free yogurt (240 ml)

  1. Slice the skin from the pineapple and remove the hard core. Cut the pineapple in chunks. Toss all the ingredients in your blender, except for the cinnamon. Blend for 40 seconds till smooth. Drape a pinch of cinnamon on top of the smoothies.

Tangerine apple smoothie for two servings in five minutes ready to drink! This is the perfect breakfast smoothie made of fresh fruits that will boost your day.

A tangerine apple smoothie with banana and honey is a perfect fruit smoothie.

What makes a great fruit smoothie? The basis of a good smoothie is three different fruits and one of those fruits needs to be frozen. I always have some frozen fruit in my freezer. You can buy frozen fruits in the supermarket, but I like to freeze some fresh fruits myself.
One of the easiest fresh fruits to freeze is the banana. Peel a banana and break it in chunks. I always use freezer bags for proper hygiene.
Ingredients
  • 6 Tangerines
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Banana (frozen chunks)
  • 1¼ cup fat free yogurt
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
Instructions
  1. Peel the tangerines and remove any seeds. Cut the apple, remove the core and chop in pieces.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in your blender and mix for 40 seconds till smooth.
  3. Serve the tangerine apple smoothie in two big glasses.
  4. Optional: you can make your own orange juice. You will need the juice from 3 oranges.

A spinach melon smoothie will boost your day! The honeydew melon is the sweetener for this green smoothie with frozen spinach and celery.

Spinach is one of the best veggies to use in a green smoothie. Raw frozen spinach chopped or leaves contain many vitamins and minerals!

Make sure you do not buy the creamed frozen spinach for this smoothie.

My spinach melon smoothie has a pretty sweet taste, because the honeydew contains a lot of natural fruit sugars. Celery contains a lot of water, but also some vitamins.
I use celery a lot in my green smoothies to give the main veggie some additional flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (150 gram)
  • 1 cup honeydew melon (150 gram)
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 cup skimmed milk (240 ml)

Our coconut blueberry smoothie is a really fresh fruit smoothie with an amazing color. The mint taste combines perfectly with the fruit flavours.

First you will need to drain the fresh coconut water from the coconut. I always use a head screwdriver and push it through the sofest of the three holes on top of the coconut.

Unfortunately not all coconut will hold the fresh coconut water. In that case you can replace the coconut water with skimmed milk or plain water.

To easily crack the coconut open I put the coconut in my hand palm and tap the coconut alongside the equator on a hard rock.
Alternatively go outside and throw the coconut 8 feet in the air and let it crack open on the pavement.

My banana chunks were also frozen, but that is not a necessity for this coconut blueberry smoothie.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup fresh coconut chunks (150 gram)
  • ½ cup fresh coconut water (120 ml)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (150 gram)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup skimmed milk (120 ml)
  • ¾ cup fat free yogurt (180 ml)
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Crack the coconut open en extract the fresh coconut chunks. For ½ cup of coconut chunks you will need half a coconut.
  2. peel the banana and toss the banana chunks in your blender with all the other ingredients. Blend for about 45 seconds till smooth.

This carrot pineapple smoothie is a really healthy one! The pineapple, honey and ginger ingredients gives your smoothie a sweet and sour taste.

I just love my carrot pineapple smoothie! Carrots are not only good for eyes, but also prevent cancer, strokes and infections. Start blending those carrots and enjoy all the sweet and sour taste of your healthy orange veggies.

Carrot is a root vegetable and the wild carrot origins in Afghanistan. Already around 3000 BC carrots were cultivated in Europe! The first orange coloured carrots were cited in The Netherlands. Funny because orange is also their proud national color. Before that carrots were described as being red or yellow.

Everyday you learn something new ;)
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup carrot in pieces (275 gram)
  • ½ cup pineapple pieces (75 gram)
  • ¾ tablespoon ginger root shavings
  • 1½ cup fat free yogurt (360 ml)
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions
  1. Wash the carrots and chop them in small pieces, because carrots are pretty tough to blend. Grate little slices of a peeled ginger root and toss all the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth.
