(That pleasing moment when your nail polish matches your smoothie.)
Here are the recipes for 3 of my favourite smoothies at the moment. I’ve never been a fan of vegetables in smoothies before as in my old blender they were something like lumpy, cold soup (sorry old faithful £5 blender). In a power blender they are completely different. A great way of getting an extra portion of raw veg in before I’ve even started the day.
Orange Tiger Smoothie (named by George)
- 1 Orange peeled
- 2 Carrots chopped
- 1 tbsp of fresh raw ginger peeled (I store mine in the freezer and use straight from there)
- 1 Apple chopped
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- Blend until smooth and serve over ice.
- (I like heaps of ginger, you may like to try it with less.)
- 1 cup Spinach I keep this in the freezer and use it fresh from there
- 1 cup Water
- 1 Apple chopped
- 1 Banana peeled
- Blend the water and spinach for about 30 seconds until like green liquid.
- Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
Beetroot Berry Burst
- 3 small Beetroot raw, peeled
- Handful of raspberries I use frozen
- 1 Banana peeled
- 2 cups Almond milk
- Blend until smooth.
- I like to garnish with some extra frozen berries.
Are you a blender fan? How do you squeeze extra fruit and veg into your diet? Do you think smoothies cancel out cake?

Wowee that machine looks like a beast! I have never heard of it but am definitely off to investigate. Those smoothies look amazing and I love your glasses – I have a soft spot for Kilner and those recycled style glasses x
Those smoothies look so inviting, especially the beetroot berry burst, purple is my favourite colour after all! Clearly a £5 blender is no match for the mighty Froothie 🙂

These all look beautiful, but I am especially a fan of a green smoothie. I start my day with one every day.
wow those smoothies look gorgeous!
Oh I love those beautiful colours of your smoothies! What a great machine Froothie must be 🙂

Wow, that does look like a great Smoothie maker but I’m not sure I can justify the cost to hubby. He’s still begrudging me buying a Nutribullet. The smoothies look great though xx
Love these juices, they look like jewels:-) I would love a Froothie as my Braun Multipractic may have served me well but it can’t do all this:-)

Beautiful smoothies and great review Sarah. It sure is a fabulous beast!

I have just pinned these to try S and I need to have more beetroot in m diet.
We love our Froothie, it’s become a key appliance in our kitchen, for the reasons you mention. It’s quick, very powerful and not too noisy either. I love it for making custard, as an ice cream base and of course, in summer being able to freeze fresh fruit and make instant sorbets is fantastic.
Isn’t the froothie wonderful? I’m able to do so much with it that I never could in my old blender and as you say, the smoothies are so, well smooth! Love the trio of bright colours you’ve made and they all sound quite delicious.
Oh yummy bab! I could be tempted to get me one of these! Treat round yours on Wednesday yeah??? x
Your pictures are gorgeous! And the smoothies sound delicious. I have the 9400 and love it but the timer buttons on the 9200 sound pretty useful.
