  Smoothies and Health drinks

You can put most fruits or vegetables into a smoothie and know that you will be getting the full nutrition of every ingredient. We love the Nutri-bullet for blending and crushing all our ingredients, but a regular blender will do the job well.
We have tried and tested them all and here are a few of our favourites....

If you make half veg / half fruit and then adjust to personal taste...you cant go wrong!
