Simple smoothies

Emily Kerrigan

Lazy weekend brunches are made for setting up your own at-home juice bar and letting the kids help make their own. Juicers can be expensive and a faff to clean - we stick to a blender which we find has all the muscle we need. Try to get the kids into the odd green smoothie so that they don't just expect a juice drink to be 100% fruit-sugar sweet - our version tones down the savouriness by adding banana, nut butter and milk and using baby spinach leaves instead of kale as they have a milder 'green' flavour. For novelty factor, you can also make double quantities of your favourite smoothie, mix half the mix with gelatine and pour into moulds to make smoothie babies
