Smoothies are often my saviour when I am in need of a quick & easy treat packed full of fruit. I just love how my blender does most of the work. Here are some smoothie recipes that I make at home.

Chocolate and Banana Smoothie

If there’s a way I can sneak peanut butter into a snack I will…

65ml of yoghurt
1 banana
