5 steps to make a perfect smoothie

Blend up a smoothie – an easy and delicious way to boost your daily fruit and vegetable intake in 5 minutes.


  • Pour a liquid base like milk, plain or fruit yoghurt, fruit juice, coconut milk, coconut water or almond milk into a blender.
  • Top with your favourite fruit and/or vegetables.
  • Add a little honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla essence or sweetener of your choice (if needed)
  • Drop in a few ice cubes or some crushed ice and
  • Blend until smooth.

But what happens when you want something a little more indulgent?  That’s when you try my favourite! 🙂  Or check out the Indulgent Smoothies below.
