Method

  1. 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 to remember to do this the day before.
    2. Put the banana and spinach in a blender and pour in the apple juice.
    3. Cut the lime in half and squeeze all the lime juice into the blender.
    4. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.

  2. 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. Put the pears and blueberries in a blender, then pour in the apple juice.
    3. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.

  3. For the orange smoothie
    1. Use a teaspoon to scrape all the skin off the ginger, then finely grate onto a board using a microplane.
    2. Peel the carrot, then trim and roughly chop it.
    3. Put the ginger, carrot and frozen mango in a blender, then pour in the orange juice.
    4. Cut the lime in half and squeeze all the lime juice into the blender.
    5. Secure the lid and blitz until smooth, then serve.

  4. 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.

    3. 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.
