This plum smoothie is more than just a drink; it’s a tribute. My mother used to blend this up as a special treat. Today, I’ve sprinkled in my own twist, giving it a contemporary edge while preserving that cherished taste of my childhood.
Plums: Ripe and juicy, these fruits are essential for the sweet base of our smoothie.
Ginger: A hint of ginger adds a sharp, spicy note to the mix.
Orange Juice: Adds a tangy freshness that complements the sweetness of the plums.
Plain Yogurt: Contributes to the creamy texture of the smoothie, with an option for flavored varieties for extra taste.
How to make a delicious Plum Smoothie
Cut the plums into chunks or wedges. You don’t have to peel the skin of the plums because they add a nice flavor and color.
Add the plums, ginger, orange juice, yogurt, ice cubes, and any additional ingredient of your choice to a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!

Plums, with their unique tart-sweet profile, harmonize brilliantly with blueberries, strawberries, mangoes, peaches, apples, and pineapple. Think of a colorful fruit medley!
Absolutely! Whether fresh or frozen, plums bring their delightful essence to your smoothie. If you’re seeking that chilled thickness, dial up or down on the ice.
Your luscious plum concoction will keep its charm in the refrigerator for about 48 hours. Past that, it might be time to bid adieu.
