Smoothie’s can be very refreshing, especially in the summer when you would rather drink than eat. Be aware of the amount of sugar that can be found in one smoothie – adding water is a good way of cutting this down. But it’s still much better to consume sugar from fruit than from sugary treats that have no nutritional value.
Berry and Beetroot JuicePrint Recipe
- handful of frozen raspberries
- 1 ready-cooked or raw beetroot (if using raw, cut up first)
- 4cm chunk of cucumber
- 100ml pure apple juice
- Juice of ½ lime
Put all the ingredients into a smoothie maker or blender with 100ml water and blitz until smooth.
* Get younger children to count the raspberries as they put them in. For older children, tell them each raspberry is worth 3p or 5p, and ask how much the raspberries are and get them to calculate how much you paid for the raspberries? * Keeps for 4 days in the fridge, but will be at its best freshly made and used that day. * Not suitable for freezing
