There’s nothing like a healthy smoothie to start the day and, depending on your personal preferences and health requirements, the ingredient choices are endless.

I tend to have a staple few ingredients I use each time, but to that I can add any number of fruits, seeds, vegetables, or health supplements I fancy.

Bananas are a wonderful sweetener and thickener, and many people use these in their smoothies, however I try to keep the sugar content down so I tend to go with berries, with maybe an occasional addition of grated apple or mango when they’re plentiful. Another nice way to sweeten the smoothie is to add a tablespoon of natural runny honey or date puree which I make up myself.

You’ll notice the quantities I use are pretty loose; this is because it really comes down to your own personal preferences – whether you like it thick or thin, sweet or tart. So experiment until you find what works for you.
