How to make a healthy yummy berry smoothie

Super simple, super tasty and so adaptable. Make a berry smoothie for breakfast or as a snack.

We all know we need to eat at least five portions of fruit or vegetables a day as part of a healthy diet. This is to increase the amount of dietary fibre, vitamins and antioxidants in the body. However, many of us struggle to get a recommended daily intake of fresh fruit and veggies.  

As long as you’re not adding extra sugar to your smoothie, it makes for a great healthy start to your day – or a  delicious snack.  

Whatever your tastes, there’s a smoothie for you. This berry blend can be adjusted with your choice of berries and what is seasonably available.
