Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

A deliciously cold, quick smoothie is one of my favourite ways to start the day – here are four of my favourite combos. Once you know how to do it, feel free to use whatever seasonal fruit and veg you’ve got to hand and experiment with your own favourite flavours.


For the green smoothie
1. Peel the banana and cut into nice big slices on a chopping board – ideally you want to use frozen bananas, so try and remember to do this the day before.
2. Add the banana and spinach to a liquidiser.
3. Pour in the apple juice.
4. Cut the lime in half.
5. Squeeze all the lime juice into the liquidiser.
6. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.


For the purple smoothie
1. Remove the stalks from the pears, then use a knife to cut into quarters, removing and discarding the cores.
2. Add the pears and the blueberries to the liquidiser.
3. Pour in the apple juice.
4. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.


For the orange smoothie
1. Use a teaspoon to scrape all the skin off the ginger.
2. Finely grate the ginger onto a board using a microplane.
3. Use a Y-shaped peeler to peel the carrot, then trim and roughly chop it.
4. Add the ginger, carrot and frozen mango to a liquidiser.
5. Pour in the orange juice.
6. Cut the lime in half.
7. Squeeze all the lime juice into the liquidiser.
8. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.


For the white smoothie
1. Peel the banana and cut into nice big slices on a chopping board – ideally you want to use frozen bananas, so try and remember to do this the day before.
2. Add the banana and ground almonds to a liquidiser.
3. Pour in the milk.
4. Drizzle in the honey.
5. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.

Tips

You can make all these smoothies with fresh fruit, but it’s a great idea to bag up fruit combos and freeze them ahead of when you need them, which also means you don’t need to add ice.
