Smoothie tips

To make the smoothie thicker, freeze the chopped up fruit and bananas before blending

You can use any liquid such as; trim milk, coconut water, almond, rice or soy milk

You can also use any fruit that you have available, some particularly good smoothie fruits are; apricots, plums, berries, feijoas, melons, peaches, pears

If fresh fruit isn't available, you can substitute stewed or canned fruit

For a bit more flavour you could also add a pinch of cinnamon, a teaspoon of honey or 1/4 of a cup unsweetened, low-fat yoghurt to your smoothie
