Smoothies are fast, easy, incredibly versatile and great either as a kickstart to your day or as an afternoon pick me up. In its simplest form, a smoothie is a combination of liquid, fruit or vegetables and maybe some ice. By blending these components together, you immediately have a refreshing and flavoursome drink that is full of healthy goodness.
Making your own is far better value than the store bought alternatives, with the added advantage of knowing exactly what goes into your finished drink. This guide goes through some basic principles for smoothie making, but the fun is all in the experimentation, so have a rummage through your fridge or freezer and blend up a storm.
