Peas in a smoothie ...w...t...heck! Do not knock it before you try it. This is one of Mood Food's most famous tricks of the trade. Getting an extra serve of veg in your smoothie may seem small, but has a huge impact and will help those gut bugs SING!
 1 cup low fat milk (or almond/oat/soy/whatever your preference is milk)
 ½ cup frozen fruit (e.g mango)
 ¼ cup vegetables e.g frozen peas or zucchini (go on put them in, you’ll never know they’re there!)
 1 tbsp low fat natural yoghurt
 1 tsp nuts e.g. almonds or LSA
 1 tsp chia seeds or psyllium husk
 2 tbsp oats
 optional (for the kicker) knob of ginger or juice of a lime

1

Combine all ingredients in a blender or Nutribullet and wazz to your liking. This will make quite a thick smoothie so add more milk or cold water/ice if you prefer it to be a more runny consistency.

2

Play around with different combinations. You can easily substitute the mango for berries or banana. The peas can be substituted for zucchini or spinach. All these veg have a pretty bland flavour and will pump up the nutritional value of your smoothie without ruining the taste.

3

Be sure to freeze your veggies first, so your smoothie is delicious and cold to drink.

GF, DF - replace regular yoghurt with coconut yoghurt or leave out completely.
