    1. ARRSE Runners

    Crushed ice
    Full fat double cream
    Vanilla ice cream
    Fruit of your choice (I prefer banana)

    All blended together to create a thick and tasty smoothy that is very refreshing on a hot summers day.
  3. I like strawberry and mint, with or without a drop of elderflower cordial or apple juice.
    You could use spirulina(which is high is a good source of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and most importantly, for your training, protein). It tastes somewhat strange by itself and can be a bit erm, lumpy, but you can't tastes it in smoothies.
  4. Well maybe i like to have some strawberries and sunbath lol.... Yeah seems healthy taste nice and beats eating raw eggs

    This isn't the naafi, so no crayoning please.

    Peelsome banana and freeze them. Then you use them as the base for the smoothie, adding whatever fruit is nearest to going off in the fruitbowl and a little fruit juice.

    Also can be enhanced by the addition of rum.
  6. 1 cup orange juice
    3 tbsp milk powder
    1/2 banana; cut into pieces
    10 fresh strawberries; hulled
    3 ice cubes


    1 Cup yoghurt of your choosing
    1 banana or other fruit
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup ice cubes

    Add 1oz of protein powder to a smoothie or oat bran, almonds etc. for an extra burst of nutrition.
  7. I love smoothies and tend to mix a variety of fruits. I never use ice cream, milk or cream but add water for a healthy option. Avocado is a particular favourite of mine (not so healthy but lush).
  8. Remember to add a scoop or two of whey protein to top-up your protein levels. I recommend Phd Pharma-whey Cookie Dough flavour for anything with bananas in it
  9. There's nothing wrong with sauce in a smoothie :-D.

  10. Nar that'd be telling owd lad.:)
  11. Just made a smoothie
    1 tin of peaches with pineapple juice(didnt have fresh), 1 banana, 1 pear and 1 carrot
