Super berry smoothie

*Makes 2 servings

Berries contain a boost of disease-fighting antioxidants and fibre and are jam-packed with vitamins. This makes them the perfect super-fuel for kids.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of mixed berries (I used strawberries and blue berries)
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 cup of low-fat yoghurt
  • Half a cup of milk, or replace this with orange juice

Method
Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

Tip:
Bulk up this recipe by adding a tablespoon of flaxseed or raw oats. A tablespoon of protein powder will also make this simple smoothie go a long way. It’s great for fussy eaters when you need to add a little ‘extra’ to their meals.
