Smoothie Tips:

  • On a hot day, try adding ice to your smoothie for an instant cool down.
  • If you prefer thicker smoothies add frozen fruit. Bananas are perfect for this!
  • Adding water, milk or juice can make your smoothie thinner.
  • Honey or grapes are perfect for sweetening up a smoothie.
  • To make a smoothie creamy, add avocado. Ice cream or yoghurt works too!
  • Is your smoothie bitter? Pineapple or oranges work a treat!
