How to Make a Simple Summer Smoothie

Posted on 26 Apr 2016 by Anna Scott
It’s an easy way to reach your 5-a-day, but how can Sainsburys promo codes, Ocado discount codes and The Hut discount vouchers help you make that smoothie? Well, with savings on essential ingredients and utensils of course! But first you need to know how to create said smoothie, and it’s really not as complicated as you might think. There are many, many recipes out there, but we think this this one is as simple, delicious and nutritious as they come…

You will need…

1 banana, peeled and sliced

1 small glass of orange juice

1 handful of frozen mixed berries

A blender or hand blender

You can use fresh berries too of course, but as the emphasis here is on ‘simple’, then we think frozen berries are the way to go – they’re inexpensive and you don’t have to wait until they’re in season to enjoy (although if you’re making this in the spring or summer then you should have no shortage of fresh options). For extra value you can use our Sainsburys voucher code to pick up a bag of their Sainsburys Basics Red Berry Mix 400g for £1.50, and don’t forget, that Sainsburys discount code also gets you £20 off your first online order when you spend £100 or more.

To make the smoothie, put the orange juice and chopped banana in a bowl or blender and partially defrost in the frozen berries in a microwave. We recommend not fully defrosting them as the partially frozen berries will give you a nice chilled smoothie as an end result – perfect for a hot summer’s day. Add the berries to the bowl or blender then mix together (with a hand blender if using a bowl), until smooth, then serve immediately.

Using our current The Hut coupon code you can have your pick of all the top brands AND make a saving with a 15% discount as a new customer, so consider their Bosch MCM4100GB Food Processor 800W (£98 before discount) or the Tefal BL142140 Fruit Sensation Blender (£29.99 before discount). They’ve also got a retro-inspired blender that you can save on with this The Hut promotional code – the Gourmet Gadgetry Retro Diner 3 in 1 Milkshakes, Smoothie and Cocktail Maker (£26.99 before discount).


For more fruity savings, why not give our Ocado promo code a go? If you’re on the look-out for another online supermarket delivery service, this one could be right up your street, literally. A combination of fantastic quality and a great reputation for customer service, this Ocado voucher code might well add to the temptation with 25% off your first order when you spend £40 or more.

Picking up a smoothie habit this summer might just be the best nutritional move you can make. Many of us struggle to include those 5-a-day in our diet, but making regular smoothies with the help of our Sainsburys coupon codes, Ocado promotional codes and The Hut discount vouchers, it can certainly be more achievable as well as money-saving.
