Today's Green Smoothie and 5 A DAY

Looking at what fruit and vegetables I had at home, I was thinking of what kind of juice or smoothie to make. I like to use up what I already have before I re-fill my fruit basket and fridge with more fruits and veg!

I was in the mood to experiment so this morning I made a Banana, Kale, Kiwifruit and Melon smoothie with a few squeezes of lime!

It was nice and healthy and I had 4 out of the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, before 9 o clock this morning 😊.

I always thought that as long as I had 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, even if they were the same fruit, then it would count.

However, I found out that our five portions should include a variety of fruit and vegetables. This is because different fruits and vegetables contain different combinations of fibre, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

Almost all fruit and vegetables count towards our 5 A DAY and the great thing is that they can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or pure juices.
