Smoothies have become big business recently, with nearly a quarter (23%) of 25-34-year-olds in the UK admitting to drinking smoothies at least once a day.

It’s rare to pass by the drinks section of your local supermarket without seeing the best blends offered by the biggest smoothie companies, and every self-respecting breakfast spot has a superfood smoothie to fuel you up for the day ahead.

It’s easy to see the appeal. Smoothies are packed with healthy fruits and vegetables, they count towards your 5-a-day, they take minutes to prepare, and they taste delicious. What’s not to like?

In this week’s Friday Food Club, the team at Ludo’s Primal Wellness has put together a recipe for a 5-star smoothie that’s super healthy, can be prepped in minutes, and is a great way to fuel up in the morning, give yourself a boost in the afternoon, or enjoy any time of day.
