How To Make a Smoothie In a Thermomix
Let’s start by running through the basic Thermomix fruit smoothie recipe and instructions. The good news is that pretty much any ingredient can be blended in this awesome machine. You don’t need to worry about whether it’ll manage to puree your veg – it can handle anything.
The key is knowing which speed setting to use for smoothies. We recommend using speed 8 or 9 for around one minute. Then check to see if the consistency is smooth enough and blitz it for another minute if required.
Now let’s jump into the actual smoothie recipes…
Summer Mango Smoothie
Making a mango smoothie with a Thermomix is super-simple. We like to combine juicy mango with fresh banana and almond milk. It creates a refreshing and substantial smoothie that’ll keep you full until your next meal.

Thermomix Green Smoothie
Making a green smoothie in a Thermomix is a piece of cake. No matter how hard your green veggies are, its powerful blades will turn them into super-smooth goodness.
Leafy greens are one of those ingredients that can go either way in a blender. The best models will pulverise them into liquid without a second thought. But weaker machines will just chop them into tiny leaves that get stuck in your teeth…
Thankfully, we don’t have this problem with the Thermomix. It enables us to blend up spinach and kale without any issues and make delicious green smoothies.
This is one of our go-to breakfast smoothies as it’s filling, energy-packed, and feels that bit healthier thanks to the leafy greens.
- Pineapple – 2 slices
- Banana – 1 whole, peeled
- Spinach – 1 handful of leaves
Blend together at speed 8 for 1 minute, adding a little water if needed.
Vanilla Protein Smoothie
We love making a good protein smoothie in the Thermomix. It thoroughly blends the protein powder so we get a silky smooth shake at the end.
There are loads of protein sources that you can add to smoothies like chia seeds and tofu. But we tend to stick with flavoured protein powders because we know how many branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) we’re getting. These are crucial for muscle repair and strength improvements following a workout.
Our 3-ingredient protein smoothie includes…
- Banana – 1 whole, peeled
- Almond milk – 125ml or 1/2 cup
- Vanilla protein powder – 1 scoop
Blend together at speed 8 for 1 minute.
Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie
This tasty treat has all of the flavour of an indulgent dessert and is thick enough to be devoured with a spoon. It combines fresh berries, plant-based yogurt (suitable for vegans), and biscuits to create a creamy and decadent treat.
Using a Thermomix for this strawberry smoothie ensures that the biscuits are thoroughly blended into a silky texture. If you’re enjoying this as a smoothie bowl instead of a drink, then feel free to add extra biscuit crumbles and strawberry slices on top.
- 8-10 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 individual vanilla or strawberry vegan yogurt (120g or ½ cup)
- 1-2 digestive biscuits
Blend all the ingredients together at speed 8 for 1 minute, then check and blend again if required.
Creamy Banana & Cinnamon Smoothie
There are so many different ways to make a banana smoothie in a Thermomix. Because of their subtle taste and creamy texture, they pair well with pretty much every other ingredient. One of our favourite tricks is to blend them with a spice like cinnamon which adds a whole new flavour dimension…

Avocado & Pear Smoothie
Avocado makes an ideal smoothie base as it’s thick and creamy. For people who don’t like a banana in their smoothies, avocado is a great alternative. It’s also perfect for smoothie bowls!
This Thermomix avocado smoothie also features pear and pineapple. Some blenders struggle with pineapple’s stringy bits and hard centre which is why we love making it in a powerful Thermomix. Simply combine…
- Pear – 1 – core removed
- Avocado – ¼ – stone and skin removed
- Pineapple – 2 slices – skin removed
Blend together at speed 8 for 1 minute with a little water. If you’re planning on using this recipe for a smoothie bowl instead of a drink, then just omit the water so it’s thick enough to enjoy with a spoon.
Oreo Thermomix Smoothie
Who doesn’t love cookies?! So when we saw this recipe for a smoothie made with Oreos, we knew it was one for the Thermomix.
Although the original recipe scored high on the minimalism scale (just 3 ingredients), it was packed with dairy products which we’re not fans of. So, we decided to use it as inspiration but adapt it with our own twist. Our Oreo smoothie is made with…
- 6 Oreo cookies
- 1 frozen banana (instead of ice cream)
- 125ml or 1/2 cup of almond milk (instead of dairy milk)
Blend all of the ingredients together in your Thermomix on speed 8 for around 1 minute. Check the consistency and blitz for another minute if needed.
Carrot, Apple & Ginger Smoothie
A Thermomix machine is ideal for making smoothies from hard ingredients. Some blenders struggle with dense fruits like carrots and apples, let alone stringy fresh ginger. But this machine blends them into a super-smooth liquid without any problems.
Simply place the following in your Thermomix bowl…
- 1 carrot (head removed)
- 1 apple (core removed)
- 1 small piece of fresh ginger (peeled)
Blitz on speed 8-9 for one minute and serve. If you don’t have fresh ginger, you can also use ground powder in a pinch.
Strawberry & Banana Breakfast Smoothie
A Thermomix can grind porridge oats to dust in just a few seconds, which makes them perfect for breakfast smoothies! Adding oats to pretty much any smoothie recipe will make it thicker and more filling – an ideal start to the day.
This recipe from Janky Cooking With Jessy includes frozen strawberries, banana, oat, and almond milk. Check out how quickly the machine pulverises everything into a super-smooth liquid!
We’d recommend skipping the cocoa powder and syrup to keep it healthy – the almond milk and fruit provide plenty of flavour on their own.
Simple Coffee & Banana Smoothie
Coffee and banana are the best of smoothie friends. Their flavours combine perfectly to create a delicious and nutritious drink. Not everyone realises that coffee can be added to shakes and smoothies – simply add the granules and they’ll dissolve in the liquid!
- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 125ml or 1/2 cup almond milk
Peel the banana and place it in the Thermoix bowl, followed by the almond milk and coffee granules. Then blitz on speed 8-9 for 45 seconds and your smoothie will be ready. You can also substitute other types of plant-based milks if you prefer (hazelnut is particularly good).
