Drink of The Day: Ribena & Strawberry Smoothies


Fadzil is a big fan of Ribena, but not me and lil Naqi. We both loves fresh juices or yogurt drinks instead. Yesterday night, as I was doing some paper cutting and pasting recipes that I collected through magazines and newspaper into my scrapbook, I found a recipe for Ribena smoothies from the Ribena pamphlet that I received. It quickly captured my attention as it only involves only 3 ingredients and the method of preparation is so simple!

I've tried it out today and for someone who doesn't fancy Ribena, it tasted good! I love it, En. Fadzil tak payah cakaplah kan. Kata peminat Ribena :) Since it's so easy to prepare, and it's a healthy drink (the smoothies rich in vitamin C and calcium) why not I share it with you, my dear readers :)

To prepare the drink, all you need is:


- Ribena (of course :P)

- Yogurt

-Ice-cubes

+

a blender/mixer

Since I love to experiment with recipes, I decided to use the blackcurrant with strawberry instead of the normal blackcurrant and strawberry yogurt instead of plain yogurt. You can modify the recipe according to your preference, if you want to...the choice is yours :)


The measurement is also simple. Basically it is 1:2:4.
-75gm Ribena, 150ml yogurt, 300ml ice cubes
or
-150ml Ribena, 300ml yogurt, 600ml ice cubes

Alternatively, you can measure it using a cup, for example:
half a cup of Ribena with a full cup of yogurt and two cups of ice cubes.

To prepare the smoothies, all you have to do is to pour the 3 ingredients into a blender/mixer. Blend it until the ice totally crushed and it's ready to serve! Ain't it easy? :)
Two glasses for both Me and Fadzil.
Our Naqi was asleep that time... :)


Ok, till we meet again. I need to sleep now. Can't wait to have fun tomorrow morning with the hot mommies and cute toddlies

Happy trying! :)

Fadzil boleh geng dengan Armi's family. They love Ribena since they were young. hihi. I macam you jugak, prefer fresh juice instead. But your recipe share here looks so tempting dear. Macam terasa je masam2 lemak ribena with berries tu. Dahla i suka berries kan!! hihi.

Oh ye ke. Actually kan, my siblings sume hantu ribena jugak. Ingat lagi masa kecik2 pepagi mak I bancuh ribena utk bekal skolah diaorg. I air masak je sbb dulu I mmg tak reti minum air manis2 langsung. Plain water je la favourite I sampai arwah abah kata untungla sape dapat I, jimat blanja sbb I minum sky juice je. Hihihi. Dah masuk high school br I blaja minum minuman lain.. :)

A'ah dear, rasa dia masam2 lemak manis mcm tu. Its so easy to make so if you happen to have the ingredients around, do try it! ;)

Ok dear, see you and ur family tomorrow! Can't wait to have fun, I tak pernah jejak kaki kat playgym lagi ni, excited ngalahkan budak2. So kalau I lagi over dr Faaz esok sila buat2 tak nampak ye. Hihi. I pun nak kacau Oman lagi, nak dgr suara serak2 basah dia ckp "tanok" :D
