                6 strawberries

                16 raspberries

                12 blueberries

                40g porridge oats (optional)

                100ml low-fat natural yoghurt

                50ml apple juice

Tip

Freeze your own fresh, best in season berries before blitzing for a refreshingly sweet take on this classic recipe!

 

Remember:

No matter how many smoothies you consume in a day, they only contribute to 1 of your 7-a-day. Smoothies fall into the same category as fruit juices so in total you should have no more than 150ml of fruit juice or smoothies in a day.
