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.

The taste of this smoothie is sweet and sour with a whiff of mint. I recommend to make your own grapefruit juice instead of packed grapefruit juice
Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries (150 gram)
  • 1 banana
  • ¾ cup grapefruit juice (180 ml)
  • 1 cup fat free yogurt (240 ml)
  • 8 mint leaves
Instructions
  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.
  4. Pour the smoothie in two glasses and enjoy! :)

This cherry mango smoothie for breakfast will give you all the vitamins you need for the rest of the day. Cherries are fat free and contain lots of vitamins and antioxidants.

I used frozen and unsweetened cherries for this cherry mango smoothie, because they are already pitted.

Combine the mint honey and the fruits and you will have a spectacular tasty smoothie!

Some nutrition fact of cherries and mangos. They are almost fat free fruits and contain lots of vitamin C and vitamin B 6. Those are antioxidants that will prevent strokes, cancer and heart and vascular diseases.

  • 1 cup mango pieces (150 gram)
  • 1 cup fat free yogurt
  • ½ cup skimmed milk

  • 6 fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Peel your mango and toss the mango slices in the blender together with all the other ingredients. Blend till smooth for about 40 seconds.

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.
