I’m a huge smoothie fan! Not only are they quick and easy to make; they look good, taste great and deliver an instant hit of essential vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Smoothies are endlessly versatile and you can mix and match your ingredients to match your health goals. Hurray! Fancy filling up of your five a day first thing in the morning?
