How to Make a Great Smoothie

Smoothies are a popular way to increase your healthy dose of fruits and vegetables.  There are lots of recipes for smoothies on the internet, but you can actually just use one simple formula for creating the perfect blend!

To start with, you should choose a leafy green vegetable.  Choose something like spinach or kale for example.  This can act as a base for your smoothie.  Next up, choose 2 or 3 different fruits and vegetables to create the flavour of your smoothie.  Our favourites include pineapple, apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.  These add flavour as well as healthy vitamins and fibre.

The next step is to add a healthy fat to your smoothie.  This will help you to stay full and satisifed.  You might like to include some nut butter, avocado or nuts and seeds.  These can be blended down smoothly in your blender.
