Do You Even Smoothie?

A good homemade smoothie can provide a healthy dose of essential vitamins and nutrients. Not only are they easy to make, it can also prevent excess fruit and vegetables going to waste… Experiment with flavour combinations or just chuck them all in!

 

OUR TIPS:

DRINK FRESH to get maximum benefit of nutrients. Not possible? Store in an airtight container.

FREEZE & SAVE – if you find yourself with an abundance of fruit and veg but no time to eat/drink it all, simply dice it up and freeze it! Alternately buy your ingredients in bulk and keep them frozen to save $$$ and time.

Same goes for milk and yogurt, simply pour into ice cube trays and wella!

BE AWARE - some recipes can be quite high in calories. Keep your goals and overall daily calorie intake top of mind and simply adjust recipes to suit your requirements 

GET CREATIVE – There are endless smoothie recipe options, base your recipes around whatever fruit is in season to save money.
