Ingredients

40g of tinned mango slices (discard liquid)
40g of tinned peach slices (discard liquid)
40g of frozen spinach
1 medium banana
200ml of water (or as required)
Smoothies are a great introduction to breakfast if you don't normally have much of an appetite at the crack of yawn. They're also a good portable option for your morning commute.
Compared with some hardcore recipes, our green smoothie is a softer version that's quite sweet and fruity, while still giving you a healthy serving of greens. Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Add more water to achieve the desired consistency.

Tips

  • Instead of tinned fruit, you could use frozen or fresh fruit.
  • 150ml of this smoothie provides one of your 5 A DAY. Find out why. 

Or you could try

  • banana and oats smoothie – transform your speckled bananas into an energy-boosting liquid breakfast. Blend one ripe banana with 2 tablespoons of oats and 100ml of semi-skimmed milk until smooth. Can also be made using a soya drink.
  • very berry smoothie – take one banana, 140g of frozen summer berries or forest fruits, 40g of low-fat natural yoghurt, and about 100ml of apple juice. Blend the banana and berries until smooth. With the blades whirring, pour in apple juice to achieve the consistency you like.
  • pimp your toast – tired of your usual toppings? Toast doesn't have to be boring. Brighten up your bread spread with these healthier combos: mashed avocado and hardboiled egg, marmite and grilled 30% less fat mature cheese, or banana slices and peanut butter.
