Gut-Friendly Smoothie

← Back to How To Use

Making a morning smoothie doesn’t have to be a chore. There’s no need to carefully measure everything or chopping, peeling and slicing. Whizz your favourite healthy flavours in a strong blender and see how it tastes. Any leftovers can be kept in the fridge until the next day.

To help you, here’s some smoothie ingredients we recommend, but don’t add them all! Think of this as a ‘pick and mix’ of ingredients to best suit your needs and taste.
