I've really got into making smoothies recently because my son refuses to eat vegetables in any other form. So I've managed to come up with a few concoctions that I absolutely love and I thought it would be polite to share it with you. The first one is being used to help with my son's skin (will explain soon) and takes just a few minutes to throw together.

Smoothie one (ingredients):

2 Beetroot, 1 avocado, 1 whole banana, a handful of strawberries, a handful of spinach or kale, 1 whole mango.

Smoothie two (ingredients):

half a cup of yoghurt, banana, strawberries, broccoli, orange juice.

These are so yummy and so healthy! Will update you on the other mixtures I come up with when I have the time. Hope this inspires you to mix it up whenever you can! (insert your amazing pics below).

It's so easy to throw together too! A few berries (whichever agrees with you) yoghurt and some oats/seeds/ nuts and you're set to have a great day.
