Ingredients

125g frozen or fresh berries (use a mixture or one type)

90ml almond milk (6 tbsp in total)

2 tsp chai seeds (10g)

large handful of ice cubes

Instructions

The Method

If using frozen berries FSAI (Food Safety Authority of Ireland) now recommends to boil them first in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute before draining and using. Then put them into a NutriBullet or similar blender (liquidizer). If you are using fresh berries then there is no need to cook them first.

If using a fresh mandarin peel off the skin and separate into segments. Add the mandarin to the berries.

Peel the carrots and roughly chop – you’ll need 80g in total and add to the fruit with the spinach, yoghurt, almond milk and chai seeds. Add the ice and blend in bursts until smooth. Pour into a tall glass to serve.

PREPARE AHEAD

Layer up vegetables and fruit in goblet of your blender and then add in the ice along with almond milk just before blending.
