How to Make a Smoothie Without a Blender – 3 Ways

How to make a smoothie without a blender

I am often being asked how to make a smoothie without a blender.  Most people think you absolutely have to have a blender to make a smoothie.  Of course it’s ideal to have a blender so you end up with a lovely smooth drink.  But what about those occasions where you find yourself without a blender but you still want a nice fruity drink?

For example, you might be on holiday, staying with friends, have a power cut, your blender has broken or you simply don’t have a blender.

I’m even going to show you how to make a GREEN smoothie without a blender.  As I believe it’s so important to get your daily dose of greens especially while you are travelling.

How to make a smoothie without a blender – 3 Ways

1: Fruit Powder Smoothie

This fruit powder is highly concentrated so you don’t need much at all.  It is freeze dried so you still get a lot of the nutrients and it tastes lovely.  The great thing about fruit powder is that it doesn’t go bad, is easy to travel with and there is no chopping required.  It also doesn’t require any preservatives or added ingredients – so you’re just getting the pure fruit goodness.

All you do is add 1 tablespoon of fruit powder to your cup and all you need to do is add a little bit of liquid to make a paste and use a fork to whisk it until it’s fairly smooth.  Then continue to add a total of 1 cup of liquid slowly until you have a fairly smooth smoothie.  For a creamier taste make the smoothie with your favourite milk.  I like 1/4 cup of coconut milk and 3/4 cup of water.  Or you could use fruit juice for a fruitier taste.  You could also add the ingredients to a blender shaker bottle and shake it until it’s smooth.

Here are some gorgeous flavour combinations of smoothie for you to try: (serves 1)

3 Ways to make a smoothie without a blender

  • Strawberry milkshake: 1 Tablespoon of Strawberry Powder and 1 Cup of Almond Milk
  • Tropical: 1 Tablespoon of Banana Powder and 1 Cup of Tropical Fruit Juice
  • Raspberry and Mango: 1 Tablespoon of Raspberry Powder and 1 Cup of Mango Juice.
  • Pomegranate Antioxidant Blend: 1 Tablespoon of Pomegranate Powder and 1 Cup of Orange Juice.
  • Sweet Acai: 1 Tablespoon of Acai Powder and 1 Cup of Apple Juice. 
  • Energising Green Smoothie: 1 Tablespoon of Banana Powder, 1 Tablespoon of Green Powder and 1 Cup of Apple Juice.

2: Mashed Soft Fruit Smoothie

If you prefer to use fresh fruit in your smoothie, another alternative is to mash some soft fruits.  The technique is fairly similar to using the powder but it takes a bit longer.  You have to use soft fruit such as ripe banana, ripe mango or berries.  You mash the fruit as much as you can in a bowl with a fork.  Keep squashing it until it turns into a mushy liquid.  Then add 1 cup of fruit juice, milk or water gradually continuing to whisk it with the fork until it’s all blended up. It won’t be perfectly smooth but it will still be drinkable.

3: Non Electric Blender Smoothie

    Hi, I have a blender but it is old and kinda sad, lol. I also have a juicer. Could I put the veggies and fruits in the juicer and the oats in the coffee grinder and then in the blender? Thanks
