3 Ways With Smoothies: Smoothie Ideas for Cafés
3 smoothies, 3 recipes, 3 price points. We show you how to use our frozen smoothie sachets 3 ways with 3 café smoothie ideas.
Smoothies have reported category growth as demand since the pandemic has surged, particularly with the rise of on-the-go purchasing. Yet you can do so much more than simply blending and pouring into a glass or takeaway cup. With a few small extras, you can mix up your smoothie menu and your prices too to gain extra profit and keep your customers coming back for more!
Perfect for cafes, coffee shops and juice bars looking for fruit smoothie ideas, breakfast smoothie ideas and smoothie bowl ideas.
Smoothie Idea 1: The Premium Smoothie
Don’t just blend and serve. Attract a more premium price point with a little extra effort. In this recipe we have used our new smoothie for the season: Cherry Berry. Add to your café menu at an RRP of £3.95+!
The Premium Smoothie Recipe
- Blend your café smoothie and pour into a recyclable takeaway cup or glass with a straw
- Then, add some berries or a slice of fruit on top, or cut into a wedge on the side of the glass
- Finish with a sprig of mint, a twist of orange zest or a sprinkle of chia seeds.
We recommend selling our smoothies in a tall glass at £3.95+. Or serve for takeaway in a 12-14oz recyclable PET cup.
Smoothie Idea 2: The Breakfast Smoothie
A smoothie for a breakfast occasion. Try our café and coffee shop breakfast smoothie recipe. For this smoothie we suggest a sweet fruity one such as our Strawberry Fantasy, containing strawberries and banana. Add to the menu with a price point of £4.45+!
The Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
You will need:
- 1x 150g sachet of Strawberry Fantasy Smoothie

Smoothie Idea 3: The Smoothie Bowl
Ever tried a smoothie bowl on your café menu? We have used one of our super smoothies blended into a thicker double serving for a healthy and colourful smoothie bowl that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Think breakfast, pudding or an afternoon treat! We recommend our Acai Smoothie for a tasty smoothie bowl with a real depth of flavour. Add to the menu with a price point of £5.95+!
