Banana and Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

I hope I'm not the only one that has children that change their minds like the wind. One day they really like something, the next day they hate it. This happens a lot when it comes to fruit and vegetables. I've found a good way to get them have some of their five a day is to make a smoothie. The good thing about smoothies is that you can vary the flavours. A firm favourite in this house is the banana and raspberry smoothie.


* 2 x bananas
* 2 handfuls of raspberries ( I used fresh but you can use frozen)
* 2 tsp of sugar
* 1 tsp of vanilla essence
* 600 ml of semi skimmed milk

banana and raspberry smoothie

Preparation is simple, it is just a case of popping all ingredients into the food processor and mix together for around a minute.

This recipe makes around 3 - 4 glasses of smoothie depending on how much you want to have. This does make quite a thick smoothie which is how I prefer it but if you would like it to be less thick then you can always add in more milk to the recipe. 

I find this makes a great alternative for breakfast in the morning or as alternative to snacking.

What is your favourite smoothie flavour??



  1. Banana and raspberry sounds lovely! I like banana, oat and milk smoothies.

  2. I love a good smoothie. Need to use our Vitamix more for this sort of thing - so yummy and so healthy. Thanks for linking up with #recipeoftheweek :) I've pinned and tweeted this post and there's a fresh linky live now. Hope you join in x
