Smoothies recipes

serves 1

Ingredients
1 medium sized banana
2 scoops of low fat vanilla ice cream
1 pear cut into chunks
3-4 fresh strawberries

Method
This Summer Breeze smoothie recipe really is a breeze to make and it tastes great. First of all break the banana into about 4 pieces, place in blender. Next add the pear chunks. Hull the strawberries and add them next. Finally throw the low fat vanilla ice cream in and blend on full power for around 30 seconds. Then set on smooth for 30 seconds. Pour out in a tall glass and enjoy it! If you need to make more, just double or triple the smoothie ingredients.
