Despite my current romance with smoothies, I didn’t used to like fruit very much. As a kid I only ate apples. I was generally picky, but struggled with the texture of most fruit. I loved the flavour of a peach, but its squishy texture was offputting. Pineapple is yum but stringy. Oranges are messy. Yes – I was a weird kid. But as an adult I learnt that blitzing them together means that you get to enjoy all of the yum flavours with a nice smooth texture (no down side!) and this became my default way to enjoy fruit. Prior to smoothies, the one other tasty fruit option I discovered in my early adulthood was these little punnets of pureed apple and strawberry. The flavour combo just works. Its so good. Given that, how could I not try it in smoothie form? Adding a banana ensures that it will have the perfect texture.
