Top tips:

  • Remember that smoothies and fruit juice count towards your 5 A DAY but you should only drink a combined maximum of 150ml a day.
  • You may wish to use fresh fruits that are in season, or add frozen or canned fruit. Try experimenting with different fruits and flavours of yogurt, such as banana and vanilla or orange and mango.
  • Hold the lid of the blender with a clean dishcloth.
  • Always get help from an adult when using a blender.
