Red-fruit yoghurt smoothie – OAS friendly!

Red Fruit Yoghurt Smoothie

Here’s a surprisingly healthy recipe from yours truly.

Some of the steps will seem surprising to you. In fact you probably won’t need them at all. One of the difficulties with having a food allergy is that you have to take steps to mitigate the risk of an allergic reaction. This might be through complete avoidance of the foodstuff in question.┬áThere are some items which I avoid anyway such as apples, which is one of the reasons I can’t drink the shop-bought smoothies, as they are frequently apple-juice based.

In my case, I can get around my OAS by cooking  the fruit first. Unfortunately this will destroy some if not all of the Vitamin C (although to be fair reading up about how fragile Vitamin C is, just looking at it wrongly is likely to damage it!) As such when I pick my fruit, I freeze it until I need to use it.

This is quite quick to do. Due to my own food allergy I have to take a bit longer by cooking the fruit and letting it cool down. If you can eat fruit raw then you do not need to do this.

  • Some Blackberries
  • Some Raspberries
  • Some Blackcurrants
  • 2 Bananas
  • 100 ml Orange juice (or squeeze some oranges)
  • 1 thumb-size piece Ginger
  • 2 dessert spoons Honey
  • 500 g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Icecream (If you can't bear the thought of a healthy smoothie)
  1. heat the soft fruit in a saucepan along with the orange juice, honey, sugar (if needed) and grated ginger until simmering but not boiling. I have to do this to destroy the allergen in the fruit. If you don’t suffer with OAS then you can avoid this step.
  2. pour the saucepan mix into a blender and allow to cool.
  3. slice the banana into the mixture and blitz until smooth (I’m able to eat bananas and citrus without cooking them these days, so I add them now).
  4. Add the Yoghurt and ice-cream and blitz again until smooth. Blitzing the mix gets some air into it which makes for a fluffier texture.
  5. Pour into dessert glasses and chill before serving (not required if you’ve not had to cook out the fruit).
