You can’t go wrong with this simple formula: use your imagination and change the fruit – the fruits in season are usually the ripest. Make sure you have your glasses ready before you start.
200g (7 oz) fresh soft fruit e.g. raspberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas
200ml (7 fl oz) cold milk
1-2 tbsp flavoured syrup e.g. grenadine,
1-3 scoops vanilla ice-cream
If using larger fruits such as bananas or peaches, peel, stone if necessary, and cut into small pieces. Berries can be added whole.
Place the fruit, milk and syrup (if using) in the blender and whizz until you have a smooth, well-blended cream. Finally add the ice-cream and blend until all is bubbly, frothy and creamy.
