I adore my latest smoothie creation, St Clements Smoothie!
I do love citrus fruit. On their own, in a dressing, flavouring a cake or dessert, in yoghurt, as a juice or in a smoothie. This time I went for two of the best and a nursery rhyme immediately sprang into my head as soon as I put oranges and lemons together.

You owe me five farthings, say the bells of St Martins,
When will you pay me, say the bells of Old Bailey,
When I get rich, say the bells of Shoreditch,
When will that be, say the bells of Stepney,
How should I know, says the big old bell at Bow,
And here comes a candle to light you to bed ........"
I just hope you don't know the rest of the song. I'm really not a violent person!
I do remember playing that game as we sang the same song in the playground as a child. Did you play it too?
Yeo Valley website where they are giving away a Compact Power Juicer from Cuisinart – worth £100 along with their new Limited Edition 0% Fat Orange, Carrot & Mango Yeogurt.
I can confirm the new yoghurt is most yummy, especially for a 0% fat yoghurt. In fact I think the new yoghurt or Yeogurt as they call it must have inspired me because I have been making a lot of orange and carrot smoothies for Cooper and I since I tried it.
My St Clements Smoothie doesn't have carrot in it, but it does have oranges and lemons and it is slurpilicious! Cooper gave it his stamp of approval too.
St Clements Smoothie
A fruity smoothie with a gorgeous citrus flavour. Slurp!
- 4 easy peelers
- 3 red apples
- 100 ml orange juice
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 tsp Yeo Valley 0% Greek Style Yoghurt
- 1 tsp honey
1. Peel the fruit.2. Blend the fruit with the orange juice, lemon juice, yogurt and honey. If you are using a juicer, juice the fruit then whisk, blend or shake in the other ingredients. A tupperware jar with a tight lid would do the job nicely.3. I like to add ice cubes when I am blending the fruit, but if you are juicing the fruit, then just add the ice to the glass.4. Enjoy!
Yield: 4 glasses
