Kiwi, grape and apple smoothie

Suitable for vegetarians


Smoothies are a fantastic way to pack fruit into your diet. By investing in a good quality hand blender or liquidiser you can make them at home to your own exact taste.


Ingredients - Serves 4 Adults

  • 6 kiwis
  • 1 medium sized apple
  • 300g / 10½ oz. of green seedless grapes - around 60 grapes
  • 6 ice-cubes
  • Water to dilute smoothie to your desired consistency

Method

  1. Wash hands and the fruit before beginning
  2. On a chopping board peel the kiwis using a vegetable knife.
  3. Then chop in half - if the white part running down the centre of the kiwi seems quite hard then carefully take it out using the knife and discard, chop the remainder into small pieces
  4. Chop the apple into small cubes
  5. Add the chopped kiwis and the grapes and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  6. Add the apple and the ice cubes into the blender then blend until no large pieces are present
  7. Pour into glasses and serve straight away

Serving Suggestions

Try this delicious and healthy smoothie with pineapple (fresh or tinned in own juice) instead of apple, for an extra exotic touch. To finish off get some coloured straws - green if you can find them - and use a kiwi slice for decoration! Every day's a good day get those greens in!

info

Getting the kids involved in cooking is a great idea; they are much more likely to eat foods that they have prepared themselves. Learning good habits from an early age will mean there is less chance of them being fussy eaters in later life!
