  • This smoothie can be made even lower in fat if you use low fat natural yoghurt.
  • Replace the banana with any soft fruits you have on hand or even frozen fruits to create your own favourite flavours. You won’t need ice cubes if you use frozen fruit.
  • If you don’t have a blender but you have a stick mixer, just remove the ice cubes and pop them in after you wizz it!
