With the mercury steadily rising and the longer evenings making an appearance, it seems rather fitting to complement lazy afternoons (or evenings) in the balmy sunshine with a delicious and refreshing smoothie blend. Zingy, hydrating and energy-boosting, this very special mix of super-duper ingredients is the perfect combo of sweet, zesty and creamy! Berries are crammed with a treasure-trove of micronutrients which work their magic on a cellular level to renew, rejuvenate and revive! Bingo! So sit back, take a load off and de-stress!

To make this delicious, berry-packed smoothie, you will need:
 1 x punnet of fresh strawberries
 1 x punnet of fresh raspberries
• 1 x frozen banana
 1 x tsp maca powder
 3 x tbsp coconut milk
 3 x tbsp coconut nectar
 100g almonds
 300ml coconut water
 Juice of 1 lime
 Ice
