Berry Banana Smoothie

A smoothie is a drink made out of blended fresh fruit; it can also contain ice, sweeteners such as honey or sugar, milk, ice cream and/or yoghurt. Similar to milkshake in consistency it is often referred to as its healthy variation. This type of drink started to come out during the 1930’s in the United States West Coast and it was initially based on Brazilian recipe. During those days the popular ones are the banana and pineapple smoothie variants. Then in mid-1960 there was resurgence in macrobiotic vegetarianism and smoothies became really popular as it was served in health food stores and restaurants and the rest was history.

For this recipe it won’t be as healthy as the original smoothie as I always use vanilla ice cream instead of yoghurt, but trust me this will make any bad day turn into good.


2 pcs banana, sliced or smashed
8 pcs strawberries, frozen
8 pcs raspberry, frozen
8 pcs ice cubes, crushed
1 cup vanilla ice cream (or yoghurt)
1 cup milk


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender then blend until smooth.

    You should try freezing peeled ripe bananas in plastic wrap and putting them in the blender first (minus the plastic wrap of course) -gives the thick consistency of using ice cream but without the added calories. Also a great way to use up the really ripe bananas…

    I didn’t know smoothies had Brazilian roots! I think its interesting how many different things people consider “smoothies,” its a difficult thing to pinpoint what it means.
