Chef's tip

«You can use any and all fruits and vegetables that you like in this smoothie, just be aware that mixing too many colours may turn the smoothie a muddy shade of green. »

Smoothie are a great way to get your five a day in one go: quick and simple to make, they keep you feeling full and satisfied much longer than a juice ever can, and you won't crash after a carb high.
