Scale

Ingredients

  • 500g (1 lb) frozen berries [e.g. strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, black currants, red currants, etc.], partially thawed
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) caster sugar
  • 300ml (½ pint / 1¼ cups) freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) single [light] cream [optional]

Instructions

  1. Tip all but a few summer fruits into a blender or food processor and add the sugar and orange juice. Blend until smooth, adding a little more orange juice if the mixture is too thick.
  2. Pour the smoothie into 3 tall glasses and, using a teaspoon, swirl a little cream into each glass. Top with the reserved fruits and serve with long spoons to mix the cream.

Notes

  • If you do not want to squeeze the oranges, you can buy juice – but avoid the concentrated juices.
