    Chef’s tips

    – Adjust the amount of milk to achieve the consistency you require. For a thicker consistency, you could use frozen banana chunks.
    – Substitute the frozen fruit for any seasonal fruit you like and add ice cubes to make it colder.
    – Add kale instead of spinach and include chia seeds for additional protein and fibre.


    Flax seeds are benefical for digestive, hormone, immune and cardiovascular health and smoothies are a simple way to incorporate a decent portion of them into your daily diet. The omega 3 fats in flax seeds oxidise easily, so it is best to freshly grind the seeds as you need them, rather than to buy a pre-ground seed mix.
