Ingredients
  • FOR THE GREEN SMOOTHIE (makes 4)
  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • 100g baby spinach, washed
  • 1tsp honey
  • FOR THE ORANGE SMOOTHIE (makes 4)
  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 oranges, peeled
  • TO SERVE
  • ½ small watermelon
  • ½ cantaloupe melon
  • Cake Décor Edible Eyes
Method
  • Put all the ingredients for the green smoothie into a blender with a handful of ice and blitz until smooth. Rinse the blender and repeat with the ingredients for the orange smoothie plus another handful of ice.

  • Use a melon baller to cut 8 balls out of each melon. Firmly press an icing eye onto each melon ball, then skewer each one on a straw – it may help to pierce a hole first.

  • Divide the smoothies between 8 glasses and finish each one with two ‘eyeball’-topped straws.
