Ingredients

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

90ml almond milk (6 tbsp in total)

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.
