Maple Syrup and Vanilla Bean Smoothie

Whizzed up in no time at all, tastes GOOD and is nice and healthy too. You don't need much maple syrup in order for this be to sweet, so fear not about a few calories and give it a go!

Vanilla Bean Smoothie

I use the Froothie Optimum 9200 Next Generation POWER Blender simply because I believe it's the BEST blender out there. It crushes ice in seconds and is easy to use too, it has three speeds and three timer settings including a handy pulse button.

As I'm an ambassador for Froothie if you order anything on their site (excluding the Healthy VibroFit) you can get FREE Delivery as long as you add this 'Free Ambassador Delivery 2403' in the comments section of your order; the delivery cost will be credited back to your card.
The Optimum 9200 is a commercial-grade super blender designed for longevity, versatility and BRAWN. Stronger, faster and more powerful than a Vitamix, the Optimum 9200 will set you up to make amazing soups, the silkiest smoothies, super smooth dips, nut butters, ice cream and more.

In my opinion this really is the best blender you'll ever use and the last blender you'll ever need. Once you try it, you'll wish you'd had it all your life. The 6 blade assembly creates a vortex that will suck your ingredients down and make blending a breeze. It's also super easy to clean and maintain by simply blending water in the jug at high speed.

The Optimum 9200 blender is so powerful it can actually turn stones into powder! You can see the video of it doing just that included in my full review post of this amazing blender here.

Maple Syrup and Vanilla Bean Smoothie


500g Natural Bio Yogurt
1 x vanilla pod
2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or to taste)


Split open the vanilla pod and using a knife, run the knife along to scrape out the seeds.   

Add the yogurt to your blender followed by the vanilla seeds and maple syrup.  

If you're using the Optimum blender; blend on slow for about 10 to 20 seconds.  Have a taste and add more maple syrup if you think it needs it.  Whiz for a few seconds more, and you're done.
