Recipe: Lilli Ansell’s Summer Smoothie

Published June 17, 2012

This recipe is from Great Food readers Chris and Lilli Ansell of Kirby Bellars, near Melton Mowbray.

Says Chris: “Just pop all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz it up for a refreshing, healthy summer smoothie. I make it for Lilli, my six-year-old daughter, every Saturday evening. She loves it. We often get our fruit from Wymeswold Pick-Your-Own down the road, and use thick, creamy yoghurt from Manor Farm, Thrussington, and local honey.”
