Dashing around all day or dancing all night, either way - our Party Popper smoothie will provide you with a quick energy boost. Bananas are a great source of instant energy as they contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose - combined with fibre. Use as many different types of berry as possible as each has different benefits. For example, strawberries are high in vitamin C and blueberries are full of antioxidants.
4 handfuls of berries (we suggest a mixture of cranberries, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries)
Splash of apple juice
1 tsp honey (optional)
12 ice cubes
