Making the Ultimate Superfruit Smoothies

Posted Aug 02 2010 11:18am

From the acai berry to the cranberry, we are blessed with numerous superfruits to tantalise our taste buds and give us a healthy lift. What makes these fruit so special is the antioxidant content, which is supposed to fight against damaging particles in our bodies.

Super superfruits

Here are some of the superfruits we love:

  • Acai berry
  • Blueberry
  • Cranberry
  • Goji berry
  • Grape
  • Mango
  • Pomegranate
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries

Any combination of these superfruits can taste amazing in fruit juice, but we think they are even more substantial as smoothies. It is up to you which fruits you mix together, and how you garnish it to serve.

Super superfruit smoothie

Here is one of our favourite superfruit smoothie recipes which has the advantage of the antioxidant content of both acai and blueberries:

Ingredients

  • 1 peeled banana, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 100 gram packet frozen acai pulp
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup ice

Preparation

  • 1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • 2. Serve immediately

About acai

One of the ingredients used in the above recipe is the acai berry, pronounced ass-eye-ee. Aside from its superfruit status, acai is said to taste like a mix of berries and chocolate. Acai has been enjoyed in Brazil for many years, commonly appearing with granola as a simple source of nutrients. Luckily, the growth in popularity means that acai is now available to purchase here in various forms, including the frozen packets used in this recipe.
