My top tips for creating your own smoothies

Simply choose a base for your smoothie, add the fruit and veg of your choice, adjust the sweetness and texture and decide on your booster.

  • Green tea makes an excellent base for a smoothie. Green tea is high in antioxidants (which protect against cell damage and boost metabolism. Try B inspired organic sencha green tea.
  • Lemon juice is not only an excellent liver cleanser, it also helps bring all your flavours together.
  • Berries add sweetness but are low GI so wont upset the blood sugar balance.
  • For a thicker texture, avocado or banana are popular choices.
  • Pineapple – is an excellent source of vitamin C and bromelain (anti-inflammatory).
  • To increase the protein content, seeds like flaxseed, hemp seeds and chia are perfect as they also contain beneficial omega 3 fats. They can also be used as a thickener if you don’t fancy banana.
  • Ginger – aids digestion and boost metabolism.
  • Peppermint –  helps regulate digestion and reduce symptoms of IBS.
  • Coriander – helps stimulate digestion.
  • Parsley – is a natural diuretic, reduces water retention and bloating.
