Smoothies

Do you love whizzing up a smoothie for breakfast or are you a newbie to the world of these delicious cold drinks? Either way you’ll find inspiration here for bringing a new zing to the most important meal of the day. Smoothies are always popular with all ages, a fantastic way to get children eating fruit, and irresistible on a hot summer’s day. Try a smoothie as a quick and easy pick-me-up snack at elevenses or teatime. The crisp delicate flavour of Cherry Good goes perfectly with other red fruit like strawberries and raspberries for a triple-berry taste sensation, or mixed with banana for a creamy drink to give you an instant energy lift.
