Do you want to eat healthier but struggle to find the time to cook? Have you been feeling a bit low on energy? Then these delicious smoothies, packed full of vitamins and nutrients, are for you! They couldn’t be easier to make and if you find it difficult to eat the seven pieces of fruit or vegetable, recommended to everyone by the government, they will be a life changer.

To add extra health benefits, without effecting the taste why not add some CBD oil to your juice or smoothie?
