Daily Health Tips: Fruit Juice

Q: Dr please, remind me how to make yoghurt in small quantity and which milk is good for its preparation. Is it liquid or powdered milk? Thanks

Q: Good morning Doc. Welcome to 2016. Please, how do I prepare fruit juice with…water melon, banana, apple, milk and orange?

A: Hello dear, it does sound like you’re planning a major fruit cocktail! It sounds yummy-delicious!

Okay, here goes.

Wash all the fruits first.

If you have a smoothie maker:

Cut up the water melon and remove the juicy fruit from the hard back.

If your smoothie maker is big enough, it can take a whole apple; if not cut up the apple into quarters. You don’t have to remove the seeds from the water melon or the core from the apple. The smoothie maker deals with all that for you 😀

Feed the water melon and apples to the smoothie maker. Collect the juice in a jug and keep aside.

Juice your orange manually or in an orange juicer. Add the juice to the melon and apple juice.

Then get a blender. Cut up your bananas and add the juice, a little at a time until the bananas are all blended. Then add the rest of the juice. The consistency will be either thick (if you have a lot of bananas) or watery (like the consistency of juice if there is more juice than bananas).

Now, I would not add milk to this. I would prefer to have this just like described above. If you want a milky drink, cut up some bananas and blend it up with some milk. That’s another yummy drink, right there!

If you do not have a smoothie maker, cut up the water melon and remove the juicy fruit from the hard back. Remove the seeds from the water melon and the core from the apple. Make the orange juice by manually squeezing it or juicing it. Use the orange juice as the liquid to blend the water melon and apple. Finally add the bananas and whizz it all

Have a great weekend, people 😀

    Good day Ma’am,

    I watched your Health Tips programme on Africa Magic. Using water melon to produce a juice, there was a creamy you added to the juiced melon, please what is the name of the cream? I wish to source for it.

    Your kind reply would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks Ma’am.
