Avocados freeze brilliantly, and it’s a great way to prolong the life of perfectly ripe ones. Prepping and freezing ingredients ahead means you can just chuck them all in the blender and still get your berry fix in the winter even when they’re no longer in season.

  • ½  frozen avocado
  • 1 large banana, sliced (you can freeze this ahead too)
  • a handful of washed leaves baby spinach
  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and chopped
  • 400ml apple juice
  • 2 good handfuls  fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 lime, halved
  • ice


  • STEP 1

    Put half the avocado, half the banana, the spinach, kiwi fruit and half the apple juice in a blender. Add 3 cubes of ice and squeeze in a lime half. Blend until smooth then pour into 4 glasses.

  • STEP 2

    Rinse out the blender then add the rest of the avo and banana, the blueberries, the rest of the apple juice, 3 more ice cubes and the juice of another half of lime, squeezed. Blend until smooth, then pour over a spoon onto the top of the green smoothie so you have 2 layers. Decorate with extra blueberries, if you like.
