How To Make This Healthy Delicious Fruit Smoothie

There are many fruit smoothies all around but it does seem that many Nigerians do not find fruit smoothies as a healthy way to start their day. Certain people are used to consuming heavy high calorie foods like yam, rice and potatoes as breakfast while smoothies of different types exist for them to explore.

One of the best ways to kick start your day is to consume a light and healthy food usually in liquid or pureed consistency. In view of this I have decided to share with you a fruit smoothie that both children and adult will find delicious whether as breakfast or as snacks.

Making A Healthy & Very Tasteful Fruit Smoothie

Yes, this smoothie looks very inviting and things you need to make it are very cheap and easy to come by. Just follow the rest of this post to make something like this for yourself.

Ingredients for making the Smoothie

  • One big size apple
  • Two fingers of banana
  • Water (To your preferred consistency)
  • Two oranges or tangerines
  • One sachet of Milk 25gram


  • A blender

Method Of Preparation

Clearly, the step by step method of making this smoothie is so simple.  Thanks to my powerful blender that helps produce smoothies of creamy consistencies.

  • Wash your hands clean and also your fruits. Do not spare the blender. You do not want to battle with food contamination.
  • Dice your apple into smaller pieces for ease of blending and keep aside.
  • Peel and dice the bananas and keep aside.
  • Peel the oranges using your hands. This time you do not only need the juice but you also need the fibre. Usually, I prefer tangerines. Try as much as possible to remove all the seeds except you bought seedless variety.
  • Pour all the prepared fruits into the blender and add water based on your prefer thickness or consistency. Actually, I love mine slightly thick. Do not forget to add the 25g of milk.
  • Blend at both high speed and low speed until a creamy solution is made. Hey, your heathy fruit smoothie is ready.

I hope you will find this lovely. This is the way I make my smoothie. You could be adventurous with this recipe by adding a few carrots to increase the fibre content. But for every added fruit, you might want to add one more finger of banana. Anyways, the choice is all yours based on your preference. I definitely love bananas.Hey do not forget to place the whole mixture in the fridge to make it chill.

By my estimation, this smoothies is about 500kcal. It can be served for two people during breakfast or mid snack supplying an average of 250kcal of healthy food.

  1. Thanks again for this lovely information. I’m really enjoying this site. I visit everyday. Pls keep the goodies coming.

  2. Smoothies of this nature are like poison to diabetics. Reason being that the glucose content directly infiltrate the blood stream rapidly increasing the blood glucose levels. Breakfast of a moderate compound carbohydrate which gradually breaks down to glucose is more ideal for diabetics.

    1. The diet for diabetics is not a shoe fits all. As a nutritionist, I have worked with a diabetic patient and I had to include a fruit like pineapple into her diet as a way to satisfy her sugar cravings which eventually lowered her sugar level after a period of diet therapy. In the management of diabetis, you do not exclude sugars, you could include healthy ones from natural sources like those itemised in this smoothie at calculated amount. For treatment of a condition like this, you need to speak with a qualified health care professional.
