Fresh, zingy and zesty! This beautiful smoothie blend is jam-packed full of vitamins and minerals to make you feel energised, hydrated and rejuvenated.

Pineapple is amazing for skin health; it has anti-inflammatory properties and it will boost and fortify the immune system.

I always add nuts to my smoothies to reduce the GI (which helps to prevent blood sugar levels from spiking).

To make this nutrilicious concoction of delight, you will need:

  Half a fresh, chopped pineapple
  1 x frozen banana
  1 x passionfruit
  1 x lime (juice)
  2 x tbsp desiccated coconut
  3 x tbsp coconut nectar
  100g almonds
  Coconut water
(to cover ingredients)
   Sprig of fresh mint.

Blend, serve over ice and enjoy (preferably in the sunshine).
