5-A-DAY SUMMER SMOOTHIE July 17th 2013 Smoothie connoisseurs The Farmery reveal how to re-create their famed summer smoothie… read more In need of a healthy does of scrummy summer goodness? Then we have the recipe you’re after! John and Ismail, owners of the delightful frozen yogurt spot, The Farmery, shared their ‘Five A Day’ Summer Smoothie which you can easily re-create at home. Jam-packed full of antioxidants and vitamin C, what better way to drink to good health eh? You will need: 1 small cup of The Farmery’s wild strawberry frozen yoghurt (130g) or strawberry frozen yoghurt of choice. 5 whole strawberries cut into quarters 1 clementine 1 thick slice of pineapple (diced) 1/2 of an alphonso mango (diced) 1/2 a ripe banana (sliced) 1 cup of freshly pressed apple juice Recipe: Before we start it is essential that you help yourself to a strawberry or two for a very important taste test (we quite agree). Moving on to the construction of the smoothie; quite simply blend all the tasty ingredients well until silky-smooth and foamy on top. Then pour into a tall glass or on-the-go cup for a tasty, healthy treat. Pop in a straw for a finishing touch and if you are feeling fancy add a piece of fruit on the straw for an exotic touch! And that’s it! We did say it was easy. Who knew something so healthy could be so scrummy and simple to create. Perfect for those of us always on the go, whether you have a glass for your breakfast or a dessert treat – these would also make a lovely drink for summer parties, weddings or picnics. Better still why not pop along to The Farmery in Richmond to see what other tasty treats they have in store. Sharing a love of frozen yogurt, Ismail and John came across the pond and set up shop in Richmond producing an array of scrummy fat-free treats including a range of healthy smoothies and frozen yogurt. Working with small dairy farmers in the Isle of Anglesy, their frozen yogurt flavours have our PR Manager Shelly sneaking in for guilt free trips regularly at the weekends. With a range of flavours (hello salted caramel!) and vibrant fruit toppings alongside our favourite Eton Mess summer special – The Farmery is the taste of summer …and our very own secret frozen yogurt heaven. Will you be popping along to The Farmery or re-creating their Five A Day smoothie? Even Sarah, our Social Media Assistant, who proves disastrous in the kitchen whipped up this fruity smoothie in no time!
