    So, simply whizz all of this together for a quick and easy way of getting a hit of post-Christmas goodness!

    Mrs Christodoulou tells us, "the fruit or vegetables can be frozen too, which saves on wastage and can be higher in nutrients as they are harvested and frozen in a short time. You can also make the smoothie in advance, with a squeeze of lemon juice to preserve colour in the avocado."

    We think this is a wonderful recipe to begin the new year, and we can't wait to see what Mrs Christodoulou will whip up for us next week!
