Dessert Smoothies

recipes to warm the soul

Full of ‘good for you foods’ and topped with a little ‘not so good for you, but delicious foods’…because we believe in ‘everything in moderation, including moderation’.  We wanted to have a little fun with our best-selling smoothie varieties and turned back time with some retro desserts.

We made our dessert smoothies a little thicker, just by adding slightly less liquid, but only so that the smoothies supported the weight of our chosen toppings.  We’ve used lightly whipped double cream, sprinkles, Madeira cake slices, biscuit crumbs, sponge fingers and meringues. Of course, you don’t have to be quite so indulgent in your added extras.  Squirty cream can be a lot of fun and is available in a low fat lighter option – or try a vegan cream if you’re keen to keep your smoothies vegan.
