Banana & Kiwi Fruit Smoothie [Thermomix It Up!!]

Friends and family are tired of me gushing over my fabulous Thermomix… but it really is an awesome machine (even if it’s a touch pricey).

My latest favourite breakfast smoothie is a borrowed mix from a fruit stall vendor here in Singapore. I wanted the banana and strawberry smoothie, however they had no strawberries. The fellow behind the counter suggested that I try banana and kiwifruit. Yum!

Here’s how I re-created this at home:

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 kiwi fruit
  • ice (to taste – I usually use about 10-15 cubes)
  • Optional – you could add milk (half a cup)

Method:

  1. Cut skin off kiwi fruit and peel bananas (it’s obvious, I know… but I also know someone who didn’t skin the kiwi fruit the first time they made juice with it – eeek!)
  2. Break/cut into chunks and put in blender / Thermomix
  3. Add ice
  4. Blend (on Thermomix I used 30 seconds on Speed 8)

Other thoughts:

  • You could possibly add a couple of shakes of cinnamon to spice this up a little
  • ENJOY! 🙂

    There is a lot to be said for a bog standard blender!

    I wasn’t sure at first, but after reading the recipe, it actually looks quite tasty! I’ll have to try this sometime. YUM! 🙂

    Thanks! And it’s not a combination I would’ve thought of myself. It’s also really nice if you add a dollop of honey (for those with a slightly sweeter tooth).
