Smoothies are ideal for filling up on vitamins first thing in the morning. They can be drunk or poured into a bowl, and you can use just about any fruit to make them.

Also, did you know that smoothies contain lots of good fibre, unlike juices? Also, smoothies that contain greens like spinach in addition to fruit are the best choice, as they tend to be lower in sugar and higher in fibre! 

Here's our favourite recipe: Spinach and Blueberry Energizing Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • A handful of fresh spinach
  • One cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • One ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Preparation

  1. Start by thoroughly washing the spinach and blueberries. Peel and chop the banana. Make sure all ingredients are ready to use.
  2. In a blender, add the spinach, blueberries, banana, plain yogurt, chia seeds and honey (if you prefer a sweeter smoothie). Then, pour in the almond milk.
  3. Blend until smooth and creamy. If the smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk to achieve the desired consistency.
  4. Pour your smoothie into a tall glass and enjoy immediately. You can also garnish it with fresh blueberries or a pinch of chia seeds for an aesthetic touch.
