Smoothies are a fun way to get one of your 5-a-day portions of fruit and veg. Try inventing your own refreshing smoothie by experimenting with different fruits.
1 ripe pear
4 ice cubes OR 4 x 10ml spoons cold water
220g can of pineapple (chunks OR slices) in unsweetened juice OR ¼ medium-sized pineapple
Blender or smoothie maker
Cups to serve
Skills used include:
Measuring, peeling, chopping, blending and serving.
Smoothies can be high in sugar from the fruit in them, so if serving to young children dilute them half smoothie and half water. Smoothies are also best drunk with meals, rather than between meals, to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
