Blended and chilled, a smoothie is a wonderful drink any time of the day. Great for a wakener in the morning, to keep you going through the afternoon, or to relax with in the evening, they are great. Here is a selection of some of the best smoothie recipes to try at home.

Breakfast is the most important time of the day; when the body is all geared up to take on board as many nutrients as possible. With that in mind, here is one of the all time classic breakfast smoothie recipes. And only taking about five minutes to make, it will not disrupt the usual mayhem.

All you need is 1 small ripe banana and a mix or one of 140g of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. The banana needs to sliced and put into a blender along with the berry selection. The ingredients should be blended until smooth, and poured into a serving glass. To reach a smoother consistency, apple juice or water can be blended in.

Moving onto the afternoon, here too there is a great recipe for a pick me up. Particularly great after a long morning, it contains everything that is necessary. With a quick instant hit of sweet sugar for immediate action, slow release sugars to keep things going through the day, and proteins to keep the body and mind working well, it really is ideal.

A sliced banana, 250ml of soya milk, 1 teaspoon of honey and 2 teaspoons of oats is all that is needed. Blended until very smooth and served in chilled glasses with grated nutmeg and maybe some hazelnuts will make this delicious drink complete.

In the evenings, the last thing most people want to do is cook a heavy meal. Bearing this in mind therefore, this wonderful concoction could be just the thing. It takes a little time to prepare, but does not require any slaving over a hot oven. Further, prepped in advance, it is also great for party time in the right way!

Simply prepare a quarter piece of a mango and a papaya, a 40g serving of mixed berries, (frozen work well here), half a cup of orange juice and the same again for grapefruit juice. These should all be piled into the blender and mixed until smooth. Topping with a sparkling white finishes.

These are just three of the numerous smoothie recipes that are most well liked. However, much as with cocktails, there really is no limit. Kids too will love them of course, so let yours and theirs imaginations just go, and there will be plenty of fruity fun to have.
