Smoothies

Feb 4th, 2007, 18:11 PM   #1
 
we've gone fruit smoothie mad at our house this last week.
I've decided its a great way of getting your five fruits and veg a day! The kids are loving it!
Rebekah who wouldn't touch a kiwi had a kiwi smoothie yesterday! Kiwis are good for you too! The best fruit to eat so im really happy!

does anyone know any good smoothie mixtures ?

today we have tried Jamie olivers idea of apple juice and frozen summer fruits and a banana! YUMMY!!!

i haven't bought a special machine. we just got a kenwood mixer for 15 quid. you'll need one to blend bubbas food down so its worth geting
you could also get a hand blender for a fiver from argos!
