Top Tips

Smoothies can be high in sugar because of the fruit in them, so if serving to young children dilute them half smoothie and half water. Smoothies are also best drunk with meals, rather than between meals, to reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Prepare now, eat later

  • Chill any leftover smoothie and drink within 24 hours. Stir well before serving.
