Apple, Pear and Turmeric Smoothie

We recently replaced our broken blender and with the weather starting to get properly warm and pleasant, we’ve been dying to have some smoothies! I stumbled upon this idea from a Waitorse and partners magazine and gave it a go.

I’ve tinkered a little with it as the original was a little too thick for my liking. I added some apple juice, though you can replace that with water if you want to keep the sugar levels down a bit.

Apple, Pear and Turmeric Smoothie

You’ll need:

  • 1 small apple, peel on, cored and roughly chopped into large chunks;
  • 1/2 small pear, peel on, cored and roughly chopped into large chunks;
  • 1 banana;
  • 3 tbsp Greek-style yogurt;
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric;
  • 4 ice cubes;
  • 50-100 ml apple juice.

Put the fruit bit by bit in a blender or fruit processor and start pulsing until smooth. Add the everything apart from the juice and whizz until smooth. Finally, add enough juice (try a little first, adding more as you go on) until you get your desired consistency.

This is a modified recipe, originally published by Waitrose & Partners magazine, not available online.
