Indian Smoothie Recipes

Healthy, delicious & super simple to make! My yummy Indian Smoothies will help cool you down – they are light, refreshing & always a nice way to beat the heat. Best of all, you can drink these tasty treats anytime of the day ☺.

Now I recommend using Greek Style yogurt or even vanilla yogurt since these varieties work really well with other flavors. The low fat and low sugar versions are fine to use. Also, I highly recommend using fresh fruit but if it’s unavailable - frozen fruit or fruit juice concentrates will work in a pinch. Feel free to add honey (or any variety of flavored honey) in place of sugar if needed. Please adjust the recipe as needed to suit your own personal taste. You can also pour the smoothies into popsicle or kulfi molds for a delicious frozen treat.

Needless to say – but I don’t need to remind you to wash, trim, de-seed & peel your fruit as needed.
