Fruits are one of the tastiest and healthiest foods on the planet. They are full of natural vitamins, minerals, fiber, phytochemicals and antioxidants – all of which contribute towards vibrant health and can help protect against disease. Countless health studies recommend that fruits should form a significant part of our daily diet. That’s why Government health departments around the world recommend we eat at least 5 portions-a-day.
We make our smoothies only from pieces of whole fruit and berries and nothing else. We make sure that each Smoothie contains at least two portions of fruit. That’s 40% of the recommended daily allowance of fruit in every smoothie! We work hard as well to make sure that all of our smoothies are not only healthy but they taste absolutely delicious too! Smoothie Solutions – we’re customer inspired and we’re passionate about fruit
100% Pure, Natural & Delicious!
Highest Quality Nutrition
To ensure our customers receive the best tasting smoothie with the maximum nutritional benefit – our Smoothies are freshly made to order, one loving glass at a time.
We make our smoothies from fruit that is Individually Quick Frozen (IQF). This process locks in the flavour, goodness and the nutrition of the fruit – for life. The super fast IQF process rapidly flash-freezes our fruit in only 1 or 2 seconds, instead of the old fashioned way of over several hours.
And unlike bottled smoothies, we do not pasteurise our IQF smoothies so each Smoothie retains more of the natural goodness and taste of freshly picked fruit.
We make each Smoothie to one of our award winning recipes and we pack the smoothie mix into a a single-portion sachet.
According to Fitness Magazine IQF frozen fruit has equal nutritional value, if not more, than the fruit you find on the supermarket shelves.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you use frozen fruit?
To ensure our customers receive the best tasting smoothies with the maximum nutritional benefit – we make all of our smoothies with Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) fruits. This means we have access to the highest quality fruits, all year round and we know that no damaged or poor quality fruit makes its way into one of our smoothies. Guaranteed.
Not only this, but our IQF fruit often contains more goodness and more vitamins than fresh fruit.
What is IQF technology?
With IQF technology the fruit is flash-frozen in one or two seconds, instead of the old fashioned way of over several hours. This IQF process locks in the goodness and nutrition of the fruit – for life.
According to Fitness Magazine frozen fruit can contain just as much and very often more nutritional value than the “fresh” fruit you find on the supermarket shelves.
There have been numerous studies around the world that confirm that IQF fruits provide at least the same essential nutrients and health benefits as fresh fruit and that the nutritional qualities are naturally preserved.
Why does IQF fruit make better Smoothies?
The Best Quality – You always get the the very best quality of ingredients in every one of our smoothies because we use IQF fruit specially grown and selected for Smoothie Solutions. There is no damaged or over-ripe fruit – ever. Guaranteed.
The Best Taste IQF fruit tastes better than pasteurized fruit. Smoothies that you find on the supermarket shelves in bottles or cartons have been pasteurized. This means the fruit has been heated to a high temperature, which reduces the nutritional content and changes the flavour of the fruit from “fresh” to “cooked”. Our IQF frozen fruit is not pasteurized and retains the taste, goodness, flavour and nutrition of fresh fruit. Our fruit is simply picked, washed, cut and frozen – with no cooking at any time, whatsoever.
The Best Nutrition – Our fruit is picked, washed, prepared and rapidly quick frozen and usually the whole process takes place within two hours. The actual flash-freeze process that locks in the vitamins and the enzymes of the fruit is accomplished in just one or two seconds and the nutrients of the fruit are preserved for the life of the product – which is well over two years. Fresh fruit very often contains less vitamins and nutrients than our IQF fruit, as nutrients are lost almost immediately after picking. Fruit in the shop can be several months old.
The Best Recipes – Our IQF Smoothie Sachets contain special combinations of fruit and berries mixed according to our tried and tested, secret recipes. Every smoothie tastes great – every time.
Less Preparation – There’s no need to do any washing, cleaning, peeling, cutting, chopping, scraping or slicing of fruit – with our IQF quick frozen Smoothie Sachets – it’s all done for you.
No Waste – Every Smoothie Solutions sachet contains exactly the right amount of quick-frozen fruit to make one perfect smoothie.
Stable Prices – Our IQF Smoothie sachets cost the same price all year round. Guaranteed. Fresh fruit prices vary enormously from month to month, according to availability and the seasons.
Constant Availability – Unlike fresh fruit, our IQF Smoothie sachets are available from January to December with no breaks in supply. Fresh fruits are of course only available according to the season.
Safer, Easier Shipping – IQF quick-frozen fruit travels extremely well with zero or minimal deterioration in quality, nutritional profile or appearance. Fresh fruit is very susceptible to bruising and damage, and nutritional loss during handling, transport and storage. Our IQF quick-frozen fruit, handles, travels and stores without any noticeable damage to taste, appearance or nutritional content.
How many portions of fruit in one smoothie?
Every of our Smoothies contains 2.5 portions of the government’s recommended daily allowance of of fruit. That is half of the daily recommended 5 portions of fruit a day – in one drink! Each IQF smoothie sachet has been analyzed by an independent, internationally recognized laboratory so we know exactly what’s in each and every smoothie sachet.
What is a Smoothie sachet?
A smoothie sachet is a pre-portioned, ready-mixed pack of whole pieces of quick-frozen fruit that contains exactly the right quantity of fruit to make one smoothie, when mixed with fruit juice in a blender. Each smoothie sachet contains between three and four different types of IQF fruit or berries or vegetables, that have been carefully mixed according to one of our award-winning smoothie recipes. Our products are sometimes called “frozen fruit sachets”.
