Avocados are brilliant in smoothies – they need to be nice and ripe, but once they are they’re like the veg-equivalent of adding ice cream to a smoothie as they’re so rich and creamy.


Simply blend all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Drink straight away or freeze as ice lollies.

Kids in the kitchen:

Get the kids to make this one themselves. They can dump everything in the blender and push the button!
