RECIPE TIPS
STORING YOUR SMOOTHIE

Is it OK to make a smoothie the day before or should I drink it straight away? Enjoying it immediately is the healthier option as everything is fresh, but a pre-prepped smoothie is a far better choice than a muffin or croissant on the way to work. If you do make it the night before you might notice that the flavours change (depending on the ingredients), but many people prefer a slightly earthier taste. A squeeze of lemon or lime juice will help prevent oxidation and stop it going brown. Always cover or store it in a sealed jar in the fridge to preserve the nutrients as much as possible. An easier option, if you know you’re going to be short of time is to prepare the fruit and veg in advance and freeze immediately in portion-sized bags. In the morning tip the frozen ingredients into the blender with your liquid and whizz.
