Method

Some 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, canned fruit or frozen fruit
•For a bit more flavour you could also add a pinch of cinnamon, or 1/4 of a cup unsweetened, low-fat yoghurt to your smoothie
