  1. Jacqui and I have a simple, cheap smoothie every morning – one banana, two hands-full of frozen raspberries, half a litre of skim milk. Chuck the lot in a jug and cream with a ‘wand’. Simple! (You can also throw in some yoghurt or ice cream if you wish, or even use full cream milk.)

  2. I make a smoothie with low fat milk, teaspoon honey, dollop of yoghurt, half banana and fruit from garden ( raspberries are nice) – which I grow and freeze. Tastes great!
