Ingredients

  • 150g Blueberries
  • 1 Small Banana (approx 95g)
  • 220ml Pineapple Juice

Method

  1. Peel the banana and wash the blueberries.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a blender, or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  3. Some people may find this a little sharp (depending on the sweetness of the pineapple juice) - add a little sugar or sweetener if you want more sweetness, and blend again.

Note:

  • 1 tsp sugar = 20 calories
  • 1 tsp sweetener = less than 5 calories

1 serving of this smoothie has 2 of your 5 a day!
