FRESH & FAST WINTER SMOOTHIES

When you hear about smoothies, you might think about summer and see it as a drink you only use during the warm season. But as there are so many different fruits and veggies available to experiment with, there are no limitations to one season.
Many of the flavours suit the winter season just as good.

A smoothie is the perfect way of getting a lot of goodness in you, in just one shot. And there are no excuses about not having enough time or whatsoever, as this will only take you a few minutes to prepare and to drink ;)

Enjoy one (or more) of our favourite winter morning smoothies and start your day feeling energised and ready to go out in the cold, after just a few sips! And keep in mind, that you are always more than welcome to vary and/or add any ingredients as you wish. Happy winter!
