Smoothies can be a great way to up your fruit and veg intake, as well as hit your vitamin and mineral requirements every day. It's a great hack to sneak in nutrition if that doesn't come naturally to you!

Skip sugar-laden store varieties and blitz up your own. Not only is this far healthier, but it will also work out much cheaper too.

If you want to take it out with you, invest in a mason jar - or just re-use a 500ml jar from your kitchen cupboards.
