Sneaky Smoothies

Sneaky Smoothies are the quickest, easiest way to grab breakfast to go while filling up on fruit, veg and nutrients.

Invest in a cooler cup, drink it on the way to work, school or just to the shops.

You can cram at least 3 of your 5 a day into this sexy little mush and it’ll keep hunger at bay until lunch.

You can make any number of flavour variations, today I went for papaya, melon, pineapple & lime… oh and spinach.

You don’t really taste the spinach but it packs a hell of a punch in the nutrient department. It’s one of the lowest cal, nutrient rich foods in existence. Full of vitamins, it also works to fight cancer cells, lowers blood pressure, slows the ageing process, improves brain function and works as an anti-inflammatory (no bloated belly).

The point of Sneaky Smoothies is that you can make it with any fruit & veg you have in the house.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Tropical Smash:

1 papaya,

2-3 handfuls of chopped melon (any kind or a mix if you prefer),

2 big handfuls of raw spinach,

1 handful ice cubes

1/2 cup pineapple juice Juice of

1 lime Sñeaky Colada:

1 chopped frozen banana,

1/2 smallish pineapple,
